    New Uke Day (NUD) Enya DR-MAD Black Tenor

    Just as I decided I wouldn't get the concert version of this. You're not making my decision easier! 😂

    Kala model designations

    Maybe it's KAla, Acacia, Tenor, Paduk, Cedar Top, Glossy, Cutaway, Electronics? (But that doesn't make sense to me.)

    Enya EUC-X1M Concert REVIEW

    Interesting. I’m pretty sure I’ve read somewhere online that the round one is the quietest, but I didn’t know which one might be louder between the pineapple and the concert. I watched a youtube video comparing them (pineapple/concert/tenor) and it seemed that the pineapple was the quietest...

    Enya EUC-X1M Concert REVIEW

    I know I’m reviving an older thread, but do you happen to remember how the volume compared on these three models? I have the round one and really like the tone, but I want something louder. If the pineapple or concert was louder with a similar tone, they’d have a sale!

    Opportunity to opine

    Not necessarily. I'm interested in the two Enya models SkeeterAB mentioned because they're both less than $100. They're both solid mahogany. If I pay over $100, I'd definitely want some sturdiness (ruggedness?) as a trade off. And I need to like the sound, but that's really subjective, I know.

    Opportunity to opine

    Definitely intriguing! I love technology--it was very interesting reading about how they're made. They remind me a bit of the model T--you can have any color you'd like, as long as it's black gray or brown. But in their custom shop, they show a green one (different colors is not a custom...

    Opportunity to opine

    Do they bite? 😂 The cons are that I think they're ugly, can't drill for a strap button on the lower bout, and it's more than what I was hoping to pay. But, the pros are that even though it's more than I was hoping to pay, I'm willing to pay more for something that is going to be able to take a...

    Opportunity to opine

    Kiwaya/Famous has definitely caught my attention from time to time, but that's more than what I'm willing to spend right now. (I think.) 😂 I'm not necessarily looking for a laminate, but I'm not opposed, either. And, I'm not looking for something that's loud--just average as far as volume...

    Would you equally recommend Kala's spruce top travel ukulele?

    Things for Sale

    I've put yarn in a yard sale. It was quality yarn, not from a big box store. I priced it accordingly. I figured if I could get that price, I'd sell it. If not, I'd hang on to it, or give it to someone. People raised their eyes at the price as they walked by. I happily kept it.

    Opportunity to opine

    Tell me what you think I should get—argue a good case for it! I’ve agreed to sell my Enya eur-x1 (round HPL soprano) to a friend. I really like that little uke a lot, and I’m going to miss it. A very defining characteristic of it is that it is SUPER quiet. There are times I really like that...

    And the thing about ukes is, you can get your dream uke one day and discover that you actually like one of those better!

    Be sure to post NUDs for each one, and update them with your impressions of each as time goes on!

    Thinking about what I really want

    I agree with the suggestions to save up and then watch the marketplace here and see what comes along. If you want to buy new, you could consider a Mainland. I've never owned one, but folks here who do generally seem to like them.

    Thinking about what I really want

    I agree! If I'm honest, the looks of a uke are important to me. Kind of like color of a car. But I've never been able to choose the color of the car I drive--I just enjoy everyone else's color as I drive mine. I approach ukes about the same way. I don't have a uke with figured maple binding, but...

    Thinking about what I really want

    Yes, binding. I love light binding, especially if it's maple. Especially if it's figured maple.

    Are you familiar with Baz's reviews over at Got a Ukulele? They're very helpful!

    Thinking about what I really want

    I may be dead wrong, but I feel like making a thicker body a requirement (or at least a desire) may lead you away from some instruments that you'd like. Some instruments are made thin and sound thin. Others are made thin and don't sound it at all. I don't remember the price, but the Flight...

    Left Handed?

    He's amazing to watch! I'm thinking of showing him a video of Kalei and asking, "Hey, do you want to lean to play like this guy?" 😂 (I laugh because I'm going to be his teacher.)
