    VERY expensive for what it is, mediocre sound. Plus, do you really need a smaller uke?

    And whether the blood be highland, lowland or no,
    And whether the skin be black or white as the snow,
    Of kith and of kin we are one, be it right, be it wrong,
    As long as our hearts beat true to the lilt of a song.

    For a travel uke, consider the Flea/Fluke first. Very durable and light, and a good sound, too.

    Kala also has a thin-bodied 'travel uke' on sale (check MGM's site on eBay for details).

    I don't think I've ever heard anyone praise them. I'd go with a flea or fluke.
