    Kamaka Disney special edition ukuleles

    Actually, I think you are supposed to sit in on the class (Or go to their luau). I had called and asked if I could buy one and have them mail it to me as we are Aulani owners through Disney Vacation Club. They said sorry, you have to be at the resort. Well they kept my email and when the...

    Kamaka Disney special edition ukuleles

    I don’t have any instruments with ornate fretboard inlays. My family also loves Disney. I’m not Japanese, but recognize that a lot of Japanese tourists are buying them. I also play mine but don’t put it on the wall. I wouldn’t say I have a lot of disposable income, but I don’t regret buying...

    Also when making the A shape my fingernails on my index and ring finger are directed at my face. When I make the G shape it pivots slightly and the fingernails are directed more toward the sound hole a bit I also agree with the prior poster that you should practice slowly and then build speed...

    Congratulations! No need to feel guilty! Some people spend their extra money on lavish vacations, luxury watches, sports cars, etc. and then some of us splurge on something unique for ourselves. If it brings you joy (haha pun intended), then I wouldnt think twice about it. I know it’s hard...

    Kamaka Disney special edition ukuleles

    the model is listed as Kamaka HF-3A2. I paid $200 more than the retail price of a new HF-3D, less than a new Jake Blue or a HF-3D2I. Plus dont forget taxes And a resort stay at Aulani. Mine came with the hard sided black Kamaka case, and a few “extras” such as a micro tuner, a Kamaka folding...

    Kamaka Disney special edition ukuleles

    everyone sees the beautiful Stitch inlay first which I think is stone and amazing, but my favorite part is not the hidden Mickey inside the body, but the turquoise double K on the headstock. It’s also a satin finish and sounds great!

    I think having a better sounding instrument may inspire you to keep playing and progressing. At least that’s how I justified it. Congrats and Enjoy!
