    New Uke - Ohana SK-38

    I got myself a new Ohana SK-38 from Mike at Uke Republic. I've had this for over a week now...just now getting around to posting some pics. This is one sweet ukulele. The tone is real close to that of my 1930s Favilla. Ohana has done an outstanding job of capturing that vintage sound in a modern...

    Does anyone know of a good ukulele arrangement for Sing Sing Sing (composed by Louis Prima and made famous by Benny Goodman)? I'm looking for somethings similar to the following video...maybe a little simpler as my skill level is not quite to that level.

    Martin LXM Tenor

    Has anyone seen these? I know it is a tenor guitar...but according to Wiki, it can be tuned like a baritone uke (DGBE) or standard C ukulele tuning (GCEA). I was wondering if anyone has tried one of these? It looks very interesting and I...

    What's better than an Elvis impersonator... about a George Formby impersonator? This guy (Dave Clarke) has even got the mannerisms down pat. I really enjoyed this and had to share. :D

    Hamano H-100 soprano ukulele - opinions?

    Does anyone have any opinions on the Hamano H-100 soprano uke? I really like the looks of this uke, and the 1920s vibe it has, but I don't know how it sounds. Both Elderly and MGM has them. :anyone:
