View Full Version : New Uke!

Just got my second uke last week, a tenor Islander purchased from HMS! I've only been playing for about 2 months and already have a concert Lanikai LU-21C. I really love the size of the tenor and I also like the spacing of the strings with the slightly larger nut on the Islander for picking. HMS did a great job with the set up. The case that came with it is also very nice!

Nice Uke Kevin. Seems like you picked a good one from a place that cares. I'm sure this won't be the last. When I first started a couple of years ago, I swore I wouldn't collect a bunch like I did guitars. Well... I have six now.

Congrats. I've had the Islander MT-4 for a little over a year now. You will love it. It's quite comfy and for this price range has a satisfying sound that will keep you practicing.

Very nice! Play it with pride!

Thanks all! I really do enjoy practicing on this Islander each day. So much to learn, but there is so much info out there, especially on these forums. I think I know what you all mean about getting multiple ukuleles - I can see them becomming addictive! :o

Congratulations, Kevin! Islander is a terrific uke.
When you get a chance, try different brands of strings.
You'll be amazed how many different flavors of music live inside one uke.

It's a sickness. But a happy sickness. Sweet pickins.

I really like my Islander, and I'm glad to see they have changed their headstock sticker to something a bit more understated than what is on mine.
