    WTB: Small uke (sopranino, bambino, pocket uke etc)

    I'm looking to buy a small format uke: all the usual online retailers look to be out of stock. Would prefer to spend less than $150 but may be willing to stretch depending on the model/condition. Thanks!

    Philly area instructors/lessons?

But I'm now in a bit of a rut and would like to take my Uke playing to the next level. I'd like to take some in-person lessons in the local Philly area (Center City or Main Line area...

    Fellow KoAloha Owners

    Any idea where to get a saddle that will fit a KoAloha Concert? Can I use a generic Uke saddle (Graph Tech Uke Saddle) or do I have to order directly from KoAloha?. The configuration just looks different from the saddle on my Concert: I'd like to play around with adjusting the saddle...

    My new KoAloha Concert is on its way!

    Now the long wait begins... it arrived this afternoon so I'm vowing not to touch it until 3pm tomorrow. The longest 24 hours EVER! I don't think I'll be able to sleep. :uhoh:

    My new KoAloha Concert is on its way!

    kvowens -- to be honest, I don't know for sure. I did all of my research here on UU as well as on YouTube. Not too many places to play high end Ukes side-by-side here in Philly. To be honest, I think the thing that really tipped me towards KoAloha were the stories and videos about the company...

    My new KoAloha Concert is on its way!

    My new KoAloha Concert is on its way! (Update: it's HERE!) Just ordered my first premium Uke from MGM: a KoAloha Concert! I'm going to be glued to PackageTrackr (http://www.packagetrackr.com/) for the next day waiting for its arrival. Not sure how the little blue truck is supposed to make...

    Aloha from Philly!

    Hello all, I purchased my first Ukulele several months ago - initially for my two and a half year old daughter. I had just started getting back into playing guitar -- mostly so I could sing and make music with the kids. She was very curious about the guitar so instead of getting her a toy, I...
