    Default My new Outdoor Ukulele in blue

    What a fun ukulele! Color is great, the fit and finish is perfect, the sound through the K&K twin passive is clean and quiet. The only thing I would do differently if I were to do it again is pay the small up charge and get the deluxe tuners. I know some folks have said they are not worth it but, I disagree. They are smaller, lighter, and don't seem oversized on a soprano. Either will work just fine, aesthetically speaking however, the deluxe ones are the winner here.

    Here are a few more pictures with blue and his roommate. You can see the difference in the tuners in the first picture.

    I love that blue color. Congratulations! A couple of my friends have Outdoor Ukuleles and really like them.

    They are both pretty! I especially like the way the sun comes through it.
    Congrats, you can go play in the rain now!

    Thanks all! I am pretty stoked to be sure. I love my Pono and my VTab, and one of my Kala's, but there is something to these Outdoor Ukuleles.
    The jury is still out on the low g upgrade but so far it is all <3.

    Congrats! I've owned brown and purple. Still miss them. If they ever make a purple tenor, that puppy will be mine!

    Your blue is gorgeous. Especially love the shot with the lighting effect.

    I have a green soprano and decided I "need" a tenor. I like concert, but they don't make that. I would like the black one or my second choice would be Brown. If anyone asks me what I want for Father's Day...

    Enough about me. Congrats on the blue. I agree about the upgraded tuners.

    I recently took ownership of a soprano in moonshine. What are your thoughts on the action? I feel like it's pretty close to perfect from the nut to the 5th fret, but it's a bit higher than I like beyond that. Or maybe I'm expecting too much? It's certainly higher than my Martin and Ohana. Just feels like if I could sand down the bridge a bit, I'd be there, but from what I understand, not much you can do to adjust action.

    I guess it's love it or leave it. My jury is still out.

    Agree on the tuners. I still owe a review/comparison of both. I am waiting until the next time I restring so I can mark the strings and show the distance travelled by one rotation of the tuner peg. The deluxe tuners are much nicer for fine adjustment. I never have to go back and forth on them. They really do make more fine micro adjustments.

    @JoshSimpson79, Buy the Tenor! I have both the soprano and tenor and much prefer the tenor. It feels more resonate and is a joy to play. I find myself playing it more than my other ukes just because I have little kids and can put it down without fear of damage or water during bath time. I like the brown as it maintains that wooden instrument look, and is really cool when sunlight passes through.
