    Please, somebody buy this

    What piques my curiosity is that they used a silk finish on the soundboard but gloss on the back and sides. Why not all gloss or all silk?

    Why buy other than Martin?

    Slight tangent here, but apparently Life is Good has a Martin Guitar line of tshirts (and with ukuleles!):

    LA Ukulele Festival My First

    I will chime in here to add some of my thoughts on the festival. I flew down from the Bay Area and stayed two nights at a nearby hotel (that also housed Peter Luongo and his ensemble). What attracted me to do this was the lineup of performers from Hawaii. I figured it would be one of the rare...

    What a difference a minute makes

    "Quick on the Click" is becoming a very useful skill that most older folks do not have. A little while ago, I used it to get a boarding pass with Southwest Air for the LA Ukulele Festival. I got 10th after about eight seconds. A few more seconds would have put me back another 20 spots. Two...

    Rebel or KoAloha? Gloss or Matte finish?

    I believe you will be fine with the Rebel. These two are often compared (and they might be made at the same factory!). Some will prefer a Rebel and some an Opio. If someone had one or the other, they are likely very happy with it, as you should/will be. If you have no preference for satin or...

    Oahu Trip 2023 Experiences - UPDATE: with pics!

    Sounds like a great time! Glad you got to check a lot off of your ukulele bucket list. I had the good fortune to have Kalei at TUS when I visited, too. Makes it a memorable stop. I took my daughter there at around four and she loved it. Pool, beach, shave ice, ice cream... repeat every day...

    Platypus cam at San Diego Zoo

    New Uke Day (NUD) John S. Kinnard concert

    First, Patty, you did good! A Kinnard (especially one paired with a BR!) should be a great ukulele for you to play and love. You are certainly worthy of the ukulele since it was one that your husband helped acquire with love. It is a misconception that players skills determine worthiness for...
