    I saw some used Imua ukes at Ala Moana Shopping Center, lower level, beach side,
    at a shop called Eco Town specializing in used merchandise (consignment?).
    anyway, a good selection of ukes of all grades and values.

    I bought a used Tangi concert low G and got a Koaloha hard case for it
    I liked the mellow tone and low volume for more personal playing or in smaller
    groups.

    They are still available in several european online shops.

    I never tried one, but based on sound samples they are a bit on the quiet, mellow side compared to what I am looking for in my next uke.

    A pity, because they look absolutely stunning, and there is one for sale second hand in my town that would be an excellent chance to buy a hawaiian uke in Denmark. No danish stores sell hawaiian ukes.

    I do not know in what quantity but there still seem to be ukes coming from IMUA. There are some pretty nice Koa custom tenors getting ready for Christmas right now. For more info, visit Jorma‘s instagram: https://instagram.com/winkler_woods?igshid=uprensb46bjs

    Edit: Here‘s the direct link to the tenors: https://www.instagram.com/p/B3KzImSH...d=czkzoydid20f
