This is a really nice compliment. I'm doing the photography for Ukeeku.com. So far NAMM has been a crazy place but it is totally an experience. Thanks guys! Stay tuned, more pictures coming today!

I am lucky that I have Colin (Colmes) with me taking all those pics. those are the select ones of the 600 or so that he shot. He just gets in and starts shooting like a mad man while I talk. I will do a wrap-up post and talk about them, just too tired at the end of the day.
Thanks for looking, I will have another dump tonight with Colins pics.

Great photos! it was especially nice for me to see Sam (from whom I bought my Kamaka HF-3 at Larry's Music in Kauai) with his Kamoa ukes and Kamoa fiberglass and carbon fiber hard cases.

I'm doing the photography for Ukeeku.com.Excellent photos, Colin. Thanks to you and Tim.

Anyone know roughly what annual revenue is for the uke industry (not including vintage ukes)? The growth rate must be phenomenal the past few years.

There actually are some collings pics. Look for a pic of nicks hands with a black headstock and grooves.

Hmmm Ohana showing a tiple - that's new territory, right?

Love that surfboard lap steel - might have to own one of those and I don't play lap steel (yet)...

I have to be careful not to look at those pictures too long... LOL

I love that fish shaped/painted DaSilva uke. Is that being produced in volume?

Was Rick Turner building ukes there?

No idea if it's being produced but it sounds like DaSilva had a blast making it so I'm sure he'd make another. I played it and it is a pretty damn nice uke, feels nice and sounds nice.


more awesomeness Colin, cheers mate

Thanks Eugene.

Finished Day 3, pictures are done. Probably going to meet up with Tim after the Jam so he can do his next installment and get today's pics up. look for it.

I love that fish shaped/painted DaSilva uke. Is that being produced in volume?My impression from his website is that all of Mike's ukes are basically custom and you can order anything he can still get the wood for. So they are not being produced in volume; only as ordered.
