View Full Version : Martin style o 1934 prices

In 1934 in the USA a Martin style o soprano was listed at 10 US dollers...
The average cost of housing rent nationwide was 20 US dollers per month

Today the average cost of rent nationwide is 1080 US dollers per month
So a decent soprano uke today should be around 500 dollers.....Sounds about right ;)......I've just looked up these figures on the web....Gives you an idea what to charge.

I'm impressed that you still remember what you paid in rent in 1934
