    I bought "35" Ukuleles This Year

    Okay, so that title was total clickbait. I just received my new Ohana CK-35G today, which I'm thoroughly enjoying. But while I was waiting for it to arrive, I realized the other ukulele I bought this year (yes, only TWO!) is a Flight TUSL-35. Am I mysteriously drawn to the number 35...

    Lockdown Entertainment

    I'm not even shopping for a new ukulele, but I kept checking Mim's online store this morning to see how quickly she'd fill her weekly quota. The store shut down in 5 hours!

    Pencil Ukulele

    More of a wall hanger with those thick walls (good for quiet practice), but he puts way more effort into the build than I expected.

    Question: Has your plastic uke ever gotten wet?

    I know there are more reasons for buying a plastic uke than waterproofness, but I’m curious as to how many plastic ukers get their ukuleles wet. My gut feeling is it’s a bit like the whole “you need an SUV to go off road” even though 95% of SUV owners don’t leave the asphalt. So, marketing...
