    Default Lost In Uke World.

    Hi All,

    Im Jonathan From Malaysia.

    Im working on buying a Tenor ukulele for myself as my first music instrument as i only have interest but never had the courage to pickup one but after listening to some uke music i fallen in love with ukes and everyday all i think about is uke even though i don't know how to play one,

    I've been thinking of getting a worth while tenor... i cant afford to start with a beginner uke then move on to intermediate then hi end like everyone else who live in the state because the shipment fee to the country i stay would cost more then the uke itself as the exchange rate in my country is so low that a K maker standard uke that i dream of would cost like used car here 1:4 exchange rate.

    To cut the story short... i would love to own a uke that can last me a long time because my income does not permit me to own a few uke let alone collecting, i hope folks here in UU would help me pick a good tenor which ill try my best to save the money to purchase in distance future that i could enjoy playing and i love singing even though i sounded awful.

    Thank you everyone in advance and your time reading this.

    Regards
    Jonathan

    Thank you so much Hawaii 50,

    i've been lurking in the ukulele site hawaii...
    i find the Kanilea's K-1 T5 to be really attractive. if i buy this ill get free shipping too if they may ($800 worth of single instrument get free shipping but T&C apply i guess)
    from my country importing anything above RM500 which is USD126.95 they will tex me 35% to 55% from the total include shipping charge. which is a pain...

    Thanks again for the suggestion hawaii50... wishing you all the best.

    Regards
    Jonathan

    I know you said you don't want to keep on buying ukes, but I would suggest buying a Kala to learn on whilst saving up for your dream uke, best of both worlds, by the time you can afford it, you will be able to play it.

    I have a Kala KA-T, it's a good uke.

    Ohana are good ukes too, & I don't think there will be much to choose between them.

    (Whilst I do have some Ohana ukes, mine are solid mahogany.)
