    Default Poll: Add them up! How much have you spent on your current ukes?

    How much have you spent on your current stable of ukes? Add them up using what you spent on each uke that you still own. Don't count ukes you've sold or given away, only ukes you currently own using their original cost. If your total doesn't appear on the poll (i.e. over $2000), please share your total if you are willing.

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

    I think you need to revise your categories. While there are many people who have spent less than $500 total for more than 1 ukulele. I would guess that there will be a majority in the $2000+ category; especially for those with a number of ukuleles.

    Maybe a $2000 to $4999, $5000 to $9999, and a $10,000+. It may seem way too high, but I'm willing to get there will be some in the $10k category. There are also too many sub $1000 categories.

    I guess my options reveal where I'm at in my uke spending. I just purchased another uke so my 3 ukes put me just over the $1000 mark. There's probably a lot of people here that have spent more than that on 1 uke! I get shakey when things hit $400+ which is pretty extravagant for me. Maybe the responders who easily top out the poll will share their total. I can't seem to be able to revise my poll.

    under 800 for me. I bought used on local classified, KIJIJI.

    Snagged a Martin C1K for $400, and Concert Flea for $125.

    My wife and I play them everyday. Incredible value considering the brand, and build quality so I'm not ashamed buying used .

    But I agree with Sano... a lot of peeps would be over $2000 just with one Uke alone. If you look at some peoples signature they probably got $10K++++ worth of ukes lol.

    Right! I suspect the serious players on this forum have spent way over $2,000 on their current collection. I 'm into five figures on the 38 I currently have.

    Around 17-19G's with the stable I have now. I think I have 9 total. I've been playing 60 years so figure I am gonna stick with it enough to buy hi quality instruments. Range goes from 120.00 to over 4 grand per instrument.

    I don't know if I can call myself a "serious" player, I'm a fun player who has a nice case of UAS. My total is about $3140, of my 8 tenor cutaway ukes, 4 are custom by Bruce Wei in Vietnam.


    8 tenor cutaway ukes, 3 acoustic bass ukes, 8 solid body bass ukes, 8 mini electric bass guitars

    I don't know how much I've spent in $, but it is about the equivalent of how much most people seem to spend on one weeks holiday.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    I am sorry , the amount showing on your poll is too low. I can't find my range.
    Kindly update your maximum to $10,000 +
    Thank you.
