I'm looking for an inexpensive travel Uke and would love to find a used black sparkle Makala dolphin if anyone has one they want to part with.... preferably one set up with a nice low action....

thanks!

If you have to you can get away with spray painting a dolphin black.

If in the US this is a good price with free shipping (45USD):

Of course you'll need new strings and a setup.

Personally I'd go for a pink burst but that's just me.

yea, some of them are $42, $5 more for some of the more popular flavors, I think the red burst is very handsome.

thanks everyone for the help. I couldn't find any sparkle blacks new so I did what others have recommended and went for the solid black from Uke Republic in Georgia since they do such a great job on set up. I'm very happy with the Uke they sent me!
