    There's a killer on the Rhodes

    Not uke related, but a cool video on song origin and construction. And yes, he was a killer on the Fender Rhodes, a keyboard that got slagged by many as a cheesy, one dimensional dog.

    Well, when Kala sells direct on their website, then adds stuff like the 20% off promotion in May, with free shipping, it's no wonder that their dealers might be unhappy with them.

    I think the Pono brand is a step up, compared to the others you mentioned. This one looks good, with nice dark ebony fingerboard and bridge. The video sounds good too.

    Not a fan of guitar companies that also make ukes, like Fender, Alvarez, Takamine etc. I'd stick with a uke company like Kala, Ohana, etc.
