    Default Hive ukulele on HMS

    I sure like the new Hive posted on HMS. It looks stunning-and classy. Corey's sound sample portrays close to the best I've heard a recorded uke sound. When I think of holy grail ukes- this one is right there ..

    I don't think anyone builds a cleaner looking instrument. I love all of his work. Enough so that I'm on his build list. Only 2 years to go...

    Someone will have a very fine tenor to play, just beautiful!

    A nice thing about HMS is the quality of their photography. Hawaii is far away, but those pictures help to bring it closer. The sound clips are nice, too.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Those of you that know me know that I’ve been through literally hundreds of ukes over the years but the two I’ve never parted with are my Hives. My first Hive was a spruce top, walnut back and sides very similar to this. I just love everything about it.

    I really enjoyed that! What a beautiful uke. And the bass player sure is easy to look at....

    I also own a Hive. Red spruce over African blackwood. Also one of my favorite instruments.

    For what it's worth, I just recorded a video with mine. Unfortunately the uke player ain't much to look at.

    Really fine playing. Both recordings.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you donít begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Beautiful recording. The hive really shines !
    Cool composition too. Uke with bass guitar is a sweet combo.
