Aloha forum! Glad to have found such a collection of people equally obsessed by the uke as I am! Hoping to find some strummers in the Dubai area.

Greetings from Dover, Delaware, USA!

I've been playing about 15 months, bought my first Uke at the Aloha Bowl stadium in You Know Where, a tenor Islander. It soon was joined (after I got back home) by a Lanakai tenor 8-string - I love 12 string guitars and this was a logical step. I just bought a KPK Pineapple, my first solid wood Uke. The only thing I didn't like (a relative term!) was the soprano neck & fingerboard, but I'm adjusting nicely.

I plan on visiting a few of the smaller ukelele makers the next time I get to O'ahu, any suggestions? I will be staying in Kapolei/Makakilo area.

Haven't played uke in 45+ years, ran across a baritone uke on eBay I fell in love with and the rest, as they say, is history.
Needless to say am extremely rusty. Plan to treat myself as a rank beginner and start over. Playing of my own enjoyment.

Aloha from the midwest USA.
I'm not yet a ukulele player, but I hope to become one soon. I ran across this forum while browsing portable instruments. The Risa Uke-Solid has captured my attention the past few weeks (as you can see, I've been collecting and organizing links about it) and I am thinking hard about ordering a tenor. Still trying to decide whether to get it from Hawaii, Texas or Germany. Also trying to decide what to get for an amplifier (not sure I want to spend $150 off the bat for a Roland Micro Cube or if a Joyo JA-03 or Danelectro Honeytone might be a better way to go, at least initially).

Musically, I played trumpet and piano in my youth, secunda balalaika and a little steel string acoustic guitar in my long ago college days, and Native American style flutes most recently (with a couple Irish whistles too; there definitely is a UAS-like syndrome in the flute domain as well ;-) ). Hoping that the Risa Uke-Solid will be a good entry point into the world of ukuleles.

Greetings from Riverside, California. My wife and I have been building ukes for a few years. It started when she bought me a Stewart McDonald soprano kit for Christmas. Since then we have taken a few ukulele building classes at Palomar College in San Diego County.
We have not built any for a few years but are gearing up to start back at it.
We are looking forward to learning and sharing.
Thanks,
Lefty

Hi, I'm Mathew. I'm from the UK and play the Ocarina and the Tin-Whistle. I wanted to expand to fretted instruments, and the ocarina community suggested the Ukulele, so I am intending to get one to learn to play.

I'll probably be lurking for a little while, just so I can get a feel for the community, though I may post a topic to get advice for my first ukulele.
