    Anyone played a new Oli uke?

    Just sharing another nice sound sample recording of my 'Oli since this seems to be a popular thread for those looking! Recorded on my iphone, no additional audio filters or reverb added

    Headed to Hawaii - Tell me what I should buy

    @hands_on_lanzon I was to TUS recently at the Haleiwa store, but sorry no clue yall! I am not an organized person so I didn't think to call ahead at all 🤷‍♀️ I imagine their schedules also shift since a lot of them are gigging musicians that work there, so if you would like to arrange to meet...

    New Uke Day (NUD) NUD!!!! Pono Spruce Top Mahogany Tenor ProClassic

    Huge congrats on your new baby!!! Sure is beautiful! I'm sure it will bring you lots of joy! I'm a big fan of Pono/'Oli/Ko'olau, maybe I'll have the trifecta someday 😅 But I completely agree regarding the setups! If you've put in real time on a fret board and get to play an instrument set up...

    Headed to Hawaii - Tell me what I should buy

    I have only been to Hawai'i once, but here are my thoughts! -Find all the local artists and see their shows. Tavana, Corey and Brey, Henry Kapono, Bryan Tolentino and probably tons others around Oahu. Tip them too much and be their personal cheer leaders, have fun and say hello. Buy them...

    No longer available Pono Kalele Mahogany Baritone for tenor

    @SleepyheadRooster was this sold or just taken off market? I've got one more tenor to trade or sell out and this would be a nice upgraded beater for me when playing with the niece and nephew... and then I don't have to say I bought another ukulele. I've got the tenor honduran mahogany Kala Elite...

    Set up

    While many places do or may offer set ups, not all set ups are created equally! I only bring this up so others don't have to go through the pain I did. I personally have taken one of my instruments into a local shop for a setup and noted to them there was some minor buzzing and I wanted to get...

    New Uke Day (NUD) NUD 'Oli Spruce and Ebony baritone (heliconia)

    Thanks so much @RafterGirl :) You should take the trip to them if you ever get the chance and jam with them, they are so nice and it's super beautiful in Haleiwa! Just figure out the traffic before you head out there because it can be quick or super long depending on time of day. @frets alot...

    New Uke Day (NUD) NUD 'Oli Spruce and Ebony baritone (heliconia)

    Thank you so much! ^^ Many thanks! I am lucky indeed! Thanks so much! As to how much a difference it makes, that would depend on the player. If it's a spot that causes you discomfort right now, it will definitely help. I hope that makes sense :)

    Some more photos! These are just with my iphone and my instrument has already been played a bunch, cried on, dirty finger prints on it--so it's not the pristine photos but lets keep it real. I had to wait for a clear sunny morning to get some nice photos here in Portland, and those are kind of...

    New Uke Day (NUD) NUD 'Oli Spruce and Ebony baritone (heliconia)

    Hey all! I was lucky enough to get this new instrument recently for me birthday! With the help and love of my inlaws, cousins, and other family my partner and I had a lovely trip out to Oahu for a little over a week. During that time I got to make the pilgrimage from Honolulu over to North Shore...

    @Contrails @Keith5523 @hands_on_lanzon thanks for listening and the kind words, mahalo nui loa! Also they may even have more if you call and ask in terms of sizes and availability.

    Girl from Ipanema - Baritone ukulele

    I was inspired to get out the metronome after hearing Matt Dahlberg on the last Hawaii Music Supply Podcast. I lose the beat pretty quickly and start syncopating, but I stuck with it and made it thru! Ukulele is the new 'Oli baritone Arrangement by Yuji at Ukulele Time on patreon Setup on...

    Anyone played a new Oli uke?

    In fact, they put together a little documentary of the factory visit a few weeks ago and Kalei shared some new unreleased songs. The third song in particular gave me goosebumps!

    Anyone played a new Oli uke?

    Thank you my friend! Don't sell yourself short-- some of the most meaningful musical info I heard was "if you can hear it in your head you can play it [eventually]." The rest is just playing and practice! Skate Play or die! 🤙🤘

    Anyone played a new Oli uke?

    X is different than lattice, but the 'Oli bracing is actually a modified X bracing done with lattice from what I have read. Combined with the graduated top, which I feel like is even thinner on the 'Oli line (like porcelain thin, I can see sunlight through the wood) and robust back and sides...
