    Default NUD: Beansprout Banjo Uke

    After seeing a Beansprout uke at a recent uke fest, I couldn't get it out of my mind. I ordered a walnut concert from Aaron, and four days later, he posted a previously-owned one for sale. It was exactly what I wanted, right down to the low-G. I had him add the brass arm guard.

    Construction is amazing! The sound is loud and clear.

    Although I ordered the three NUD ukes I just posted several days apart, they all arrived yesterday, one by USPS and the others by UPS. The Beansprout and Hoffman came in hard cases.

    I'm through buying ukuleles - at least until I sell some. Maybe.

    Congratulations. I used to have a tenor version. An instrument to be proud of and one that will give you great satisfaction.

    That is an awesome-looking banjo uke. Just lovely. You are going to have a busy, fun time playing all of your new ukes. Enjoy them.
    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 don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Yes, frequent deliveries are nice. I had three months of five ukes and one month of six. Ah, those were the days. : )
