    New banjo uke... and it was free!!

    Last week, the library where we host our uke club asked me to call a guy who was asking about the club. When I called the guy, he told me he had a banjo uke he had just fixed up and wanted to sell it for $30. I told him I would take it and the wife said for that price, I had no reason not to...

    UUers from good ol' Iowa.

    this is why you just need to have fun playing your bassoon and the scholarship money will come. bassoon is not for everyone, but if you enjoy playing it, you will be rewarded in more ways than with money. plus, parents are always going to worry about how to pay for their kids' college...

    UUers from good ol' Iowa.

    if you're only 13, no point in getting your own now. especially because of the cost. i would wait till at least you've graduated high school. i bought my bassoon right after graduation. i actually started when i was 13, too. keep it up. playing other instruments is fun, but the two most...

    UUers from good ol' Iowa.

    7 months? that's awesome. i think you're dad had an inkling about a common problem. bassoon is a rewarding instrument. extremely unforgiving, but very rewarding. because it is a hard instrument to play and sound correctly, most people do quit not long after starting. keep it up!! it is...

    Beltone vintage ukulele owners: how many of us are there on here?

    In my search of learning a little more about my dad's old uke, I have found almost nothing. Even on UU, I have only seen maybe one thread (other than my own) that makes any mention about Beltone ukuleles. How many Beltone owners are on the site? What's your general impression of your uke...

    UAS at it's best (or worst): Bought another uke... Also, Mim ROCKS!!

    So, I've done it, I've bought uke #5. This time, I bought a Lanikai LU-8. A friend of mine has this model of uke and it's because of his uke that I got back on the ukulele path of righteousness :p. I've always known that I would buy an 8-string uke, I just didn't think it would be this soon...
