Are you going to slack tune it or are you picking songs that only use the most basic of chords? Its a bugger to play http://www.ukulelecorner.org.uk/home/in-the-corner/sopranini-sopranisimo-or-pocket/tiny-tangi it does sound good when you do hit a true chord though

Cool!

I scored one from FleaBay a while back, it's a blast to play for friends that think it's 'unplayable.' Have fun!

KoaDependent, mds725, I got lucky. I saw an ad on craigslist Hawaii called the number Blackford Tully(Tangi) answered the phone said he'd ship to sunny San Diego.

Lardy, Haven't got passed marveling at its size and construction, probably will try to tune it in the next day or two and try playing some basic chords. BTW, nice site, nice collection.

it's cool but you can't beat the sound and playability of the KoAloha Noah :drool:

I own one too, amazing instrument and with reservations really playable:

This Video is 16 months old, meanwhile I can play most of the regular chords quite acceptable. I love the look of people when they realize that this dwarf can actually be played. :cool:

Have fun and don't give up! ;)

Cheers,
Linho

I've wanted one of these for some time now but always seem to miss my chance or can't afford at the time one comes up. Anyway, got tired of waiting. Building tiny one myself. I've got the body done (it's ceramic). I'm nervous about making the neck. I'd like to make it the size of the Tangi but haven't the faintest idea of how to get the scale correct. I'm no luthier!

Ceramic body. That's kinda a unique idea. Is the top going to be wood, or is it going to be something else?

BTW: drop me a PM, and I can help ya figure out a scale for the ceramic uke if you would like..
