    I've actually been wondering why their stock has been lacking recently while many European uke shops get plenty of new aNueNue ukes fairly regularly. No doubt they're popular in the US and sell out...

    Very nice playing, and that Martin sounds fantastic. The photo isn't showing but judging by the video it looks to be in really good condition.

    This has been a fairly contentious topic here for some time. I don't really get the objection regarding the term 'solid' in this context. Although, that's assuming that these bamboo ukes are...

    Yes, setup is definitely a factor. I don't know of any mainland European uke shops that do setups, at least not by default. There are some decent uke/music shops in Germany, France and Spain but some...

    I have one uke that has a radiused fretboard. What I noticed playing it compared to the others with a flat fretboard is that indeed barre chords are a bit easier to manage on it. Sometimes if I'm...

  9. NUD: aNueNue Bird UC3K & fantastic experience with World of Ukes

    Ever since I got my first aNueNue uke - a Moon Bird soprano - about a year ago I've been a massive fan of the brand. Quite recently, I sold my AMM2 mahogany concert because, for a mahogany uke, it...

    Quick update. The shipment from World of Ukes arrived and the process really went as advertised. The only thing I had to do myself was send DHL some personal info and they completely took care of...

    It's basically a cheaper alternative to rosewood. Many low to mid-end manufacturers use it for back and sides.

    I love this kind of discussion about tone qualities even if one has to generalize a...

    I don't know if that's necessarily true. I was able to find so many baritones with a 35mm nut width. Pono, Uluru, the new Snail S60B to name a few. I think the majority will still have a wider nut...
  13. FS: Pono MGCDP, Deluxe Mango Pineapple Concert (EU/Europe)

    I'm selling my fairly new deluxe mango pineapple Pono that I got at the very start of the year. As ever, the reason for selling it is because it's not getting enough playing time. I thought I'd enjoy...

    Really nice to see that there's an alternative to these high-quality Martin style ukes. If I didn't have my Kiwaya soprano (and if I wasn't a complete Kiwaya fan boy) I'd be all over the soprano...

    Well, I suppose literally DHL is paying the duties and VAT and just send a bill to the shop to cover their costs. I reckon handling all of that is much easier for a logistics company.

    I've noticed the same thing. Lots of mid-range ukes around the $500 mark are going really fast. Almost impossible to find certain mid-range models, and brands like Pono and Rebel seem to be selling...

    I'm curious, which Snail did you end up ordering? I've never played their ukes but I've heard so much praise for them I don't doubt their quality.

    I completely agree. I don't like the thick fretboard on the S1 but otherwise the build is fine. But it's the sound that's the biggest issue. It's incredibly bright, almost shrill I'd say. A far cry...

    I'm going to disagree with some of the others and not recommend the modern Martins. The S0 and S1 are decent ukes for the money but, to me at least, they play, feel and sound noticeably different...
