    I got mine for $259 from Elderly. These look like nice ukes, especially the Kala ones. My question would be about the setup(s) and where they were purchased, too.

    That's a sweet deal and you can probably talk them down a little bit - at least under the psychological $500 mark. I would call it the "UAS Starter Kit"!

    If they are still available..... Snap them up. If they have no issues other than needing a good setup, purchase the tools you may need to do so. It will benefit you in the future and not overly difficult IMO.
    Would love to run across a deal like that in my area.

    What you got (unfortunately the pictures aren't still available) was pretty much a steal for $500. You could probably even sell a few of them a get a good chunk of that money back.

    Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a ukulele which is basically the same thing.

    thanks all!

    i'm probably going to give one to my daughter in law, who plays guitar. she has a 00015sm martin and is a very good player. i've already purchased her 3 1/2 yr old son, milo, a cheapo mitchell uke. i think i can teach him to play a few chords and that may spur her on to play with him as a duo. ha!

    question: where do you buy your strings, and, the proverbial question of which brands do you like? i have 3 tenors, 1 concert and a baritone. also, looking for hangers.

    thanks again,

    That's just a couple.

    As for baritone strings, I just started playing one but, the Aquila super nygut strings that were stock were quite good, IMO.
    I changed them out anyway to Living Water flouro carbons, non wounds, and I can't even begin to say how much I love them.

    All of our many other sopranos, concerts, and tenors have Martin flouro carbons strings.
    With the exception of my wife's Kala cedar top concert, she has kept the Aquila nyguts that were stock. She likes the feel and tone.
