This is kinda a different subject.
I was looking to buy a tenor and Ive been looking at the kala Acacia, but I was wonder if I wound be just better of saving my money for like a mya-moe or Gstring or something nicer

Thanks.

A Kala acacia is nice, but trust me, SAVE YOUR MONEY. You'll want something nicer later down the road, and this way you'll be money ahead for that purchace. Play as many different models as you can, to get the "feel" of low end and high end ukes. You live in a great area to do this.

Also, if you get an amp, get an acoustic amp. It will pay big dividends in the sound you get from your uke.

I've never played any of the three, but I've heard everyone sing the praises of Mya-Moe. My personal favorite is KoAloha. You just can't beat their customer service. Anything you buy is warrantied for LIFE.

Same here. I have two Roland BA-330's I hook together in Stereo Link mode that gives 4 microphone channels and 4 stereo/mono instrument channels. I also own a Roland AC=33, which is the baby brother of the BA-330:

With two BA-330's up high on speaker stands, you can cover a pretty large crowd. For an inexpensive P.A. that does a great job, get:

I've got a Roland AC-33 and a Bose L1 compact. Maybe I've overdone it a little, but I'm sure having fun! :)

Here's the thing...go with what you want, and do it the first time. You'll always wonder if you don't. At least that's how I am.

I have at shops played around with some electric sopranos, and yesterday played an Airline ( Eastwood Guitars ) Mandola ( 8 strings ), but have not taken that step yet. I find that when I play with a pick on my Lanikai LU-8 ( 8 string ) that it is very loud, and needs no amplification.
