    Default Four Moore Bettah Ukes at Ukulele Friend

    I've never seen this before, except at Chuck's Website. UkuleleFriend.com has four Moore Bettah ukuleles for sale. Three Tenors and one Soprano.

    All lovely and not too much bling.

    Another sign of the current world economy during this pandemic. 33+ Million Americans unemployed in the last 7 weeks, as of this morning.

    I was afraid to click on them to see the price. All it's going to do is get me depressed.

    I emailed for the soprano price. Uke was sold (price unknown). Perhaps another sign of the times.

    Don't worry. They all have: "contact me for the price" on the description page. I've only listened to two. I didn't check the more recent ones.

    Wonder if the soprano is much less than the tenors? It's rarer, so maybe not.

    In all honesty, even if I had the disposable income, I'm not sure that I'd want one. I'd be afraid to play the darn thing (I'm a klutz and most of my ukes have dings and scratches.) Although I'm sure they sound great, I doubt that they're that much better sounding, if at all, than many other high-quality instruments. My Moon Bird tenor is already much better than I will ever be as a player.

    I think I'll continue to admire the Moore Bettah's from a distance, as works of fine art.
