    Default Outdoor Ukulele Review (could be fun)

    Hey gang,

    I know that the Outdoor plastic ukes have been around for the past two years. I got UAS big-time this winter in Canada so I bought one of these Outdoor ukes and thought I should at least do a review.

    I buried one in the snow as a test at -24 C / -12 F at the Billings Estate for 30 minutes near where I live in Canada. Review follows. hehe



    cheers!

    Petey

    Petey,
    You may have hit on something (count me in $$$). It may be a win/win for you and Jagermeister. They could take your idea of making a canteen model but fill it with Jager. Replace that deer with a Stag and bam....the JagerUke! You like yours chilled, and in your neck of the woods burying it in the snow is perfect! Hey I enjoyed your review and humor. Let me know when the royalties coming in from Jagermeister.....So Smooth...LD
    You don't have to be "touched" to play the ukulele....but it helps!

    Hehe! Wow! Now you're adding to the madness! I love it. Never thought of Jagermeister in the uke's canteen! hehe LOL Yeah, too much snow here!

    You buried it in the snow and then put it back, haha. Wow. Guess you should've used an Outdoor brand tripod too. Hilarious, Petey! I always enjoy your reviews and this was a good one. Well done on getting the best out of it, with your chunk-swing observations as well.

    Thanks! I try to showcase the best of a uke that I can. Anyone can just diss stuff. I just can't fix that stubborn tripod. hehe I bought some WD-40 and will try it out. I need that tripod for Hawaii in two weeks.

    Hi Matt! LOL Glad you're still awake and smiling!

    You must be a "deer" friend of Punxsutawney Phil near Philly! ;-) I love that movie "Groundhog Day." Though, I'll be hitting Hawaii soon and can't wait! hehe Petey

    Just wanted to say I really enjoyed the review. Being in Toronto, I can relate to the need to have a ukulele that's winterized for our Canadian climate

    Only issue with the clear version is you can't hide stuff in the soundhole...hehe.

    The review was entertaining and enlightening. I had an outdoor uke and sent it back. Petey has a good point about using a uke for what it is good at, and it hadn't occurred to me that the outdoor uke might be good for generating sound effects. Almost all my playing is fingerpicking or strumming for accompaniment. It doesn't sound that bad for a percussive style of playing. For my style of playing it is just awful.

    Hi Petey!

    Thanks for making this review and sharing it with us.

    While I do not have a good reason to get an ODU right now, I found your video both entertaining and informative.

    You have a great sense of humor too.

    I would also like to say that I have enjoyed many of your other videos, and when I see you have posted a new one, I am very excited to watch it.
