You're in the ATL? You should come to a SE Ukers get together at the Waikiekie BBQ in Decatur.... good food, lots of fun..... good to meet up with another local.....
Thanks! It is really a wonderful ukulele.....you should keep looking for one. It sounds great and is a pleasure to play. I love holding it because it holds better against one's body as compared to a figure 8 ukulele. I was surprised about that. The sound is great, bright and happy, like a soprano with a good balance of lower, fuller tones. I suppose it is the extra air volume in the body.
I am surprised there aren't more ukuleles made in this shape.
How are things with you?
No worries, great to hear from you!
I finally picked up a Favilla Teardrop ukulele! It is beautiful, and a blast to hold and play!
Here is a link with the thread and pictures.....what do you think about it? Hope you are well!
Yeah, seems like they are going for some good prices. I watch them on eBay just for fun. We have similar taste....I thought the baroq-ulele was really cool too. To be honest, I totally want a teardrop also. Let's not bid against one another!! Are you watching the one on eBay right now? Looks like it could be a nice uke with a bit of work. I'm not in the market right now.....
by the way....a friend of mine bought a good used (made in 2005) Kamaka soprano. We played together last week, and I brought my Favilla. My little, very well played uke had no problem keeping up in sound quality or volume! I felt a lot of pride in my little vintage Favilla! Best to you!
Hey Tsani, haven't talked with you in a while but I have kept my eyes open for a Favilla. One just popped up on FMM. I don't know if you are still in the market but it looks pretty good. I think it is worth the price. http://www.fleamarketmusic.com/marketplace/default.asp
My wife recently started playing and she has taken over my Favilla! I am glad she can play such a nice instrument!
Hope this finds you well, and that you have a great holiday season,
Yeah, those cracks are serious and would take some time, but I thought of you when I saw it so I thought I would send you the link....even if just for the fun of looking.
I can understand that your heart is set on a Favilla. I made some wall hangers this weekend that turned out GREAT and I hung my Favilla with my KoAloha next to my bed above my bedside table! What is better yet, it was my wife's idea to hang them there! I hung ALL my ukes this weekend and now they are ready to be played at any moment, all I have to do is grab one off the wall! It was fun to make the hangers. Each one cost less than $2.00 in materials. I was thinking of putting together a "How-to" page so others can make them with some basic tools. Do you think people would find that helpful?
Thanks for your kind words! I have to tell you, I am blown away at the little Favilla soprano! It is really a great player, and the sound is a lot "warmer" than my Martin. I am not looking to get rid of it, but thanks for the offer! How do I find the Favilla forum, I would like to join.
I was watching that blue teardrop on eBay, it is a really beautiful uke. Sorry you didn't get it.
I had no idea Kumalae's are going for that kind of money! I guess I got an incredible deal! It sounds really amazing. Now I would love to hear it played by a really talented player...
