    My UAS recovery is 15 minutes. Well I just justified my purchase of a few minutes ago on health grounds. HMS has Slimline Koaloha Tenors online. They sound great and have a Baggs pickup. I placed one in my cart but had trouble placing the order, so I thought maybe I'm not meant to purchase it.

    I just called HMS and placed the order by phone. I justified it as my right arm will hurt and will sometimes have issues after playing. So it sounds good to me. :-) Right!

    What is the cost you would put on having access to best meals across various cuisines every day and at the end being able to pass that on as a sale or gift it or inheritance... owning multiple ukes makes a lot of sense once you think of a uke as an item from a cuisine that only gets better with age and does not end.. your ears are sensory organs just like your tongue.
    In this case your hand benefits as well!

    Your brain benefits as well.
    And, music is good for mental health, too.

    Well maybe, maybe not. What I love about ukes and part of what feeds UAS is the different sizes, different body shapes and different woods makes for different pitches and timbre in the music. And I'm now exploring different strings and tunings. It's like a smorgasbord :-). So yeah it is like different cuisines that my children will have to quote a TV show "a strange inheritance" to sell.

    Many people on the UU have said that if there are no pictures, then it didn't happen. So, I can't do a NUD with pics because that would interfere with my healthy case of UASD (Ukulele Acquisition Syndrome Denial). :-)

    Does buying uke related gear count as a relapse of UAS? If so, then I some backsliding to confess. I bought a Roland AC33 amp this morning.

    Nope. Not at all. How are you liking the Roland? I just got a Yamaha THR5A 2 days ago. I really like the chorus, delay and reverb, but I can see that the effects are quite limited. I was hoping for more range.
