    Was there today. Surprisingly very few ukulele manufacturers exhibited. None of the K brands were there except for Kala. Only non-K manufactures I noticed there were Ohana and a new company named Hug.

    June 3-5, 2022 , 2022 NAMM Show , Please post any Ukulele news here

    None of the big K brands attended this year. Some of the notable guitar brands were also missing in action. It was a much watered down event this year and for that reason I chose not to attend even though I paid my admission fee.

I have never seen an instrument manufacturer do that before. Prices usually increase, not decrease. I wonder what up at Kala. Anybody know? Might...
