    FS: Firefly Banjo Ukulele (Soprano)

    I bought this on a whim. I thought it would be cool to get a banjo sound out of ukulele tuning. It is fun, but I just don't play it much and my UAS is now in remission. ;) This is practically brand new and I'm asking $150 to include shipping in the CONUS. It does not include a bag or case, but...

    FS: Collings UC1 mahogany concert ukulele

    Ever since my Mya-Moe arrived, this beautiful UC1 has been hanging on my wall and collecting dust. It deserves to be played, but I'm more of a soprano guy, so I'd rather she find a loving home. I bought the ukulele here and it's in the exact same condition...

    FS: Willie A. Wixom Custom Concert #121

    I've gone back and forth on whether I truly want to sell the one ukulele that I custom designed, but it's time for me to set free my W.A. Wixom concert uke. You can view photos and details here...

    FS: Makai Soprano Solid Cedar/Willow

    Welcome to the next round of Andy's UAS carousel! ;) I'm trying really hard to only keep the ukuleles that I'll play on a regular basis, so this gorgeous Makai Soprano unfortunately needs to be sold. I cannot say enough great things about this ukulele. In particular, she is well made, loud...

    UAS 101: Save your boxes

    This may be obvious to everyone except me, but for anyone making their first ukulele purchase: save the shipping boxes and packing materials. Trust me! You will likely succumb to UAS (ukulele acquisition syndrome) and will start buying and selling ukuleles at some point. It will be then that...

    FS: Pono MHC Pro Classic Concert Ukulele

    It's with some reluctance that I'm offering this beautiful high-gloss mahogany concert ukulele for sale. She is absolutely stunning and, according to HMS (who sold it to me and set it up), part of a limited run. However, my new custom W.A. Wixom ukulele is here and so I'm just not playing her...

    WTB: Mya-Moe Soprano - Myrtle or Mango

    I'm about to pull the trigger on a new Mya-Moe soprano Tradition. The waiting list is a long one, so thought I'd do a quick check and see if anyone has one they wish to sell. Cheers!

    What Would You Ask?

    I'm heading to the Hawaiian island of Lana'i next week to cover the ukulele festival for Go Visit Hawaii. I'm hoping to get lots of photos and video of the event. There's also the opportunity to interview some of the ukulele players. So, I'm curious. What questions would you like me to ask...

    A Pod of Dolphins

    The first group of ukuleles arrived from UkeRepublic. All sound sweet and are ready for the first ukulele class at the Raleigh Rescue Mission... As an aside, these are the first Makala Dolphins I've had in my hands. Those that rave over them are spot on. Best sounding budget ukuleles I've...

    Apparently Google's Project Glass will help you learn the ukulele...among other, less important things. ;)

    You Won't Believe Why I Have to Return My New Martin Uke

    Take a look at the new Martin S1 I was so excited to receive. Can you spot why I have to return it to Elderly? In case you didn't notice, I will put you out of your misery. There is no "E" in "Est. 1833" I didn't immediately notice, but now I'm left feeling that the Mexico made ukuleles are...

    New Uke Day! Martin S1 Ukulele

    I was sweating whether FedEx would deliver before I headed out for the day, but it just arrived. I've only had a few minutes to play it, but it's a sweet sound that I think will grow on me. I'm not 100% convinced I'll keep the strings, so open to any suggestions. I tend to love the Fremont...

    I could use your help and feedback. I've offered to teach a beginner's ukulele class at my local rescue mission.

    Happy Place - an Original Song Written in Hawaii

    I've been fine tuning my original ukulele song, "Happy Place." I wrote it for my wife, after she mentioned that the Hawaiian island of Lanai was her "happy place." I sat down on the beach and wrote the lyrics and words while enjoying the sun and sea breeze. I hope you enjoy it! PS. The...

    Raleigh Ukulele Group

    I've only been able to find a few Raleigh ukers on UU, so in an effort to try and get more of us together, I've created a group on Facebook: Hopefully we can attract new ukulele players in the Raleigh, NC area, find those that are already playing, and...
