    Thanks for taking the plunge. No shame here. You are a maverick!

    Please report back so those of us who cannot buy one right now (foolishly or not) can live vicariously through you.

    Does anyone know if the Orange is really Yellow? Also noticed this same offer on a few other sites.

    Ok, I'll bite. I have plenty of inexpensive sopranos, but no inexpensive concerts, plus I have many sets of highly-praised strings just begging to bring a knock-about to life. I ordered the orange one (or yellow, or whatever it turns out to be).

    These seem to be from the same factory as Keealoha plastic ukes, which cost around $20-30. They are 'decent' in that they are playable and make a sound. I keep mine permanently in my car boot

    Yep but the keealoha have pictures on them on amazon for about $35 to 50. This is the first time I have seen them w/o the pictures sold in the US.

    I was looking around on You Tube and noticed a comparison for the waterman compared to a Korala and although the price in the uk is about the same between the two this sale is about half of the price of the Waterman. Again the brand name is not Korala but they do appear to be the same uke without the branding. If you are interested in a plastic ukulele or are a cat lover you may want to check out the video.

    here is one talking only about Koralas :

    Wow, the Keealoha sure sell at a premium in USA. I got mine from a brick n mortar music store in Australia, and it was priced around $20.
    For the first time ever in history, Australia has a cheaper instrument price than USA!
