    I currently own six; it was up to eleven once, but
    realistically, I hardly played some of them, so I sent
    them on to people who would get the full value from
    them!
    All power and respect to you Concert,Tenor and Baritone players, but Soprano is what does it for me every time!

    I got up to sixteen at one point, so I gave six away, someone else is enjoying them now.

    However, I did buy a couple more much better quality ukes to fill the gaps, but as said earlier, I have now found 'my' uke size.

    I have 2, however, I’ve only been playing since January so I already seem to have a problem. One is a thin body travel type I got cheap on eBay. I LOVE playing it. Both are tenors. I’m already drooling over a concert pineapple.

    Okay good, I'm not crazy either , I've only been playing a few months myself and I'm already up to seven Ukes! Four which are Sopranissimos.
    I try to play at least three different sizes each day.

    would say one of each size and style
    Soprano - 1 low g and 1high g
    Concert- 1low g and 1 high g
    Tenor - 1 low g, 1 high g, 1 dGBE and 1 DGBE
    Baritone - 1 dGBE, 1 DGBE, 1 gCEA and 1 GCEA
    Metal string electrical
    Banjo uke
    Uke bass
    Cavaquinho
    At least

    So far that makes 16 not including different brands and different woods.

    I personally only have 3 (plus 2 more in the house)
    But I could easily own many more if I had a bottomless bank account

    Jerryc41, forums like this can be dangerous and I hope you did not get so many just because.

    I myself was ... well I still am if I can remember my password I guess, to safety razor forum. Fellows talking about how a particular razor is effective in cutting their whiskers. All that vintage Gillette thing. And myself I got into buy some. But what I use for my shaving is just really a one razor that I use, all others are just collectors items = useless.

    Also safety razor blades I have to last my lifetime, with differing qualities. Living up in the north on winter times milder blades are more desirable, whereas in summer and moister humidity sharper ones are good too. Etc. etc.

    So if you have re-entrant and that low-G ones, you should be good.

    Otherwise it will be liberating to donate your other ukes. Except I certainly can't donate my razors, cause who even knows how to shave and appreciate them. So might be the same with ukes. There is always a bonfire thing too, except they burn really fast, lol

    Since I heat with wood, that's a definite - expensive - possibility. It's not this forum that got me buying ukes. It's the beautiful ukes themselves that I can't resist. : )

    I am up to 20 once I get the customer orders. I think that is too many as I can't play them and most just sit. i want to be in the 10-12 range so I will start to sell some nicer ukes as I can't keep them all and it they all deserved to be played and loved.
