    Default HMS - OOPS, I did IT again!

    We are fairly new to ukulele and had been playing an inexpensive intro concert. We started researching and my wife and I both liked the Kaniléa K-1 Tenor and Koaloha KTM series. We ended up purchasing a K-1 a few weeks ago from HMS. The experience went really smooth with great communication from sales and shipping (thanks Veronica).

    We discovered almost instantly we needed another “good one”. We thought we’d wait awhile and purchase a Koaloha next. Well...HMS listed six new KTM-00 a couple nights ago and there are a couple of real eye grabbers in the bunch. We just couldn’t not take our favourite of the bunch. I pulled the trigger this morning on this one. https://www.theukulelesite.com/koalo...-00-19184.html

    Big shout out to HMS for offering such great selection. We’ve really caught the bug.

    Thank you, I will. We’re really excited. I’m just hoping we don’t end up fighting over the same one.

    UAS is a wonderful thing (see my signature). Welcome to the club. BTW, when you get ready to post an image, be sure to hit a couple of carriage returns, then post, that way you avoid your paragraph from getting spread out like that. Like I've done below.

    We just bought it today, so not sure. Probably within a couple weeks. We should strum sometime.

    It happens to the best of us. Even if we think we’ve found our holy grail, still we succumb to UAS. Congratulations on the new Kanile’a and Koaloha. You’ve got excellent taste.
