    Default Two of same size silly?

    I'm thinking of getting another uke the same size of the one I have. Different makers. Odss are they will sound totally different, but should I be considering a different size altogether for my second uke?

    Then I must be silly!!!!!

    Proud owner of a 2 Tenors same brand but different models and 5 Sopranos, 2 of which are the same make and model but with different strings.

    You can have 2 of the same make, size, and model but have a different sound due to the grain of the wood or strings.


    If you like the size go for it but if you want to try a different size go for that...

    I have two tenors. One low G and one high. It's nice to have the flexibility. I'm still a newbie. So the "flexibility" idea was my justification for making the purchase. A rational person probably would have waited untill they could strum and sing at the same time. But hey, any excuse will do.

    Not silly at all. I have ukes that are the same size, same model, and from the same builder. Each is set up differently. Low-g, re-entrants, different tunings, different string combinations. I also have them in different rooms since I am too lazy.

    The main thing is you buy another uke, don't matter the size, just satisfy that UAS urge as soon as possible. I too have several sopranos though only one concert, and one tenor. You can never have too many ukuleles (unless you ask my wife).

    Think of it as a constant, futile attempt to achieve balance that can only be temporarily sated by buying more ukes.

    For example, I have two sopranos, a concert, and a baritone. Being newly unemployed, I foresee the disturbance in my feng shui lasting quite a while. But once I get some kind of tenor, I'll of course have to get another concert, tenor, and baritone eventually to balance it out. Sure, I could ditch one of the sopranos and live with one of each, but that's just not reasonable.
