    Default Which uke would you like to try?

    Just curious which uke you may be itching to try someday, one that you might actually buy? Me, of course I'd like to try some K-brand tenors. But since I don't see myself buying one anytime soon, a more realistic choice would be a tenor Fluke. I've had soprano Fleas, a concert Fluke, and currently have a concert Flea, all of which I've liked, but never tried a tenor Fluke. How about you? If I got one, I'd prefer the wooden fretboard.

    I'd really like to try a Pono AC-T Taropatch. A few months ago there was one at HMS for $350 including a hard case and just when I was about to buy it someone else snagged it. I've seen them at other retailers but everywhere else they cost more and don't include a case. If that deal pops up at HMS ever again I may grab one. I'd take a vintage Martin taropatch to but they are WAY more expensive.

    I'd also really like to try a Takumi TS-1M soprano which is the soprano version of my TC-1M. It an interesting soprano in that it has 14 frets to the body but is not a long neck. I think I'd really like it.

    I'd also like to try a Pohaku soprano (yes, I realize there is one in the marketplace right now) and a Pohaku concert 10.

    So many ukes to think about..... but lately I'd love to try a Mya-Moe baritone. I've heard they have a lovely thin neck profile.

    Maybe a Fine Resophonics Spider and Biscuit cone. But I am really not interested in trying lots of ukes, trying out ukes, owning a bunch of ukes. I am into playing and enjoying them, and for me that happens with what I own, and wouldn't happen with owning many unless I lived in a mansion, and then I would want one always within reach.
