    Where's that piece gone?

    I can't help with the hardware, but I can only send love for the pathos in this little UTube documentary... ♥ 😂

    ukulele black metal t-shirt design

    I'm navigating the new website for the first time, AND I'm pretty much a luddite. I don't have a PC and I just use my older Android Note. Is it true that I need to buy "Photo Bucket" to see photos of this T-shirt? Ugh.

    Looking for beginner and intermediate ukulele buying guide

    I received the following message for advice from a friend whose non-profit (teaching music to kids in war-torn countries) is currently sidelined by the pandemic. In the meantime, she is teaching stressed healthcare workers how to play the ukulele...

    That Peter Howlett soprano at Gryphon

    I'm curious if anyone here on UU nabbed the '97 Island Koa sop that sat at Gryphon for a little while, now sold. Built and signed by the esteemed Peter Howlett. They didn't realize what they had at first, but I see they righted the description...

    NUD: Kamaka, concert, white label

    I need another uke like a hole in the head... But a national retailer had a listing plus mystery pics (you couldn't really see the condition) for a fairly priced used Kamaka concert... and I hadn't held one for a while... so... Given a generous and easy return policy, I couldn't help but bite...

    Musician's Gear hardshell case sale, concert and tenor $29

    FYI: Musician's Gear hardshell case sale, concert and tenor $29, free shipping. Build quality on these is better than the unbranded cheap shiney black ones direct from China on Ebay for around the same price. In my experience, these cases run a smidge big so they fit most everything...

    Reduced: Great little hard case for vintage sops

    Fyi for the community: I just got notice that the price on these dropped to $25+ It's a nice case, built like a tank (much heavier than most), BUT with a too-high neck rest for many sops. Perfect, however, for the slender neck of vintage sopranos (EDIT: OLDER Martins, etc) . Rockbag RC...

    Kala TSUB-S Transit Series Ukulele Bag, SHALLOW!

    I recently bought a Kala TSUB-S Transit Series Ukulele Bag on Ebay. I believe it's the same bag that was sold with the later models of the high end American made Kala Elite ukes. At first it seemed like a fantastic deal: really thick, nice handle and shoulder strap, and built like a tank...

    Kala KA-ASCP-T Pau Ferro Tenor

    Anyone ever put their hands on this Kala tenor? Doesn't seem to be offered anywhere else, though Elderly apparently once had one. I don't know if it's the end or beginning of the run, or if they never got off the ground. Price point at $318 is amazing for all solid. I like its minimalist good...

    Recommendations for cases/bags for long neck sop?

    My wife calls me the "Ukulele Fairy". I collect inexpensive ukes and give them away to kids and adults who might not otherwise be able to have one (or to individuals and groups that do the same). I would like to locate inexpensive gig bags as well as hard cases for long neck sopranos (such as...
