    Good Amazon Deal , New Islander Mango Concert $163.55

    Leolani price

    I thought the point of the OP post was they're both the same , or at least from the same factory . I read Leolani has their own factory . $298 is the list price ; the Leolani sells for $239 at The Ukulele Site .

    Ninja Tuner turned out to not be as accurate as it appears . Tried the D'Addario Micro Tuner , but Snark SN-6X is working best for me .
