    Default WTB- inexpensive pocket uke/sopranissimo

    A cheap Caramel CP100 or Aiersi PU-01 or other 17” would be perfect. Got something lying around collecting dust? Located in the US. Thank you.

    I have the Ohana sopranino. I was thinking of letting it go. PM me if interested. Bought it here about a year ago. I don't really play it that much.

    Ukin' ain't easy...(wait, yes it is!)

    Depending on what you consider inexpensive, these things are pretty sweet. Only reason I am willing to part with it is because it doesn't get the play time it deserves, my hands are much too big to play it with any frequency.

    Bazmaz reviewed this one, sounds pretty good if you can tidy up the set-up on it, as needed. I do not know any more about it:

    Not only do I not think they make those any longer - it's far from a recommendation from me!!

    Yes, aside from Ohana, many that were once out there no longer seem to be made. Amahi has a new one this year in a variety of colors, but in every one that I've seen in pics (from backside of headstock) the tuner installation looks wonky.

    BTW, still looking. I have a concert Waterman that can be traded in case anyone might be interested in one of those. Thanks.

    A quick look on ebay, they have some other 17" ukes, one by Enya that might be interesting, if you like animal based sound holes. It does seem to have a few issues, but, for $32 what can you expect?!

    They made that usual mistake with sopraninos of making everything smaller - including the nut width. Ultra uncomfortable. There ARE however good sopraninos out there with reasonable widths, but they cost more. I would recommend looking and models from DJ Morgan and Andy Miles. I'd avoid the usual brand names.

    Sadly, both of those seem to be too exclusive (limited #s and auction only or UK-only shipping), and pricey. Seems like only One usual name still makes those midget ukes. As for the Enya, there is one bad review that I saw. Also not really too interested in animal (I hate squirrels!), heart, coffee cup, etc. sound holes. Sigh, the search continues...
