My good friend Robert got one of the smallest ones I've built. 200 mm scale length, the uke is made of cherry with a spruce top. Very fiddly violin 1/16 tuners, the knobs had to be filed down so they didn't bump into each other!

He recorded this one for the monthly invitational on Ukulele Cosmos, and I think he nailed it when it comes to the family situation most of us have.

Great share. Thanks.

That uke sounds great. I don't get how it can be played. There's some magic going on there. :)

Excellent response from the family in the back. Yup - that's the way it is all around the world now.

This little ukulele is amazing!:D That tiny cute fretboard I wonder how can he played so well. :music: It looks like there were not enough room for fingers. Anyway, great video, wonderful music, nice little ukulele, and a bit sense of humor.:) Love it. Thank you for sharing!

I couldn't play it to save my life, it's very very tiny. I'm impressed by Robert playing it, but also by the fact that it actually sounds quite good. Here it is next to a soprano.

To be fair, Robert is more British than most Swedes and some Brits.

I can't argue with that :agree:
