    No luck on the Compass Rose for 2020. Maybe 2021 will be luckier. I did get a Kiwaya KTS-7 soprano and I’m playing it at least once a month. Going for at least twice a month in 2021.

    I remember this thread from 8 years ago and all the great people that were posting back then. Collings is done with ukes but the Kamakas are better than ever now in my opinion.

    A one and only forever uke on the first purchase is a long shot indeed. If it was a Martin 5K soprano I could see that happening.

    Aqula has a uke string set tuned in 5ths for concert ukulele. They work on tenors too. I think its a fun change of pace, especially if you have an extra concert ukulele lying around.
