    Thanks. I also have a clear Waterman uke with LEDs inside. The lights have a remote control, and there are limitless possibilities for colors and patterns.

    I'd never buy ukulele again, except when i have the 2 I have breaks one of them. I find it totally disgusting the threads about UAS. Just play guys/girls with what you have.

    Lot of independent retailers, small builders, family businesses supported through people wanting to collect ukes. Disgusted is perhaps a bit strong? There's a lot to not like in the world these days but Jerry liking ukes doesn't make my top 10!

    "To each his own." I thoroughly enjoy the whole ukulele experience, even though I am not a great player.

    Hmmm, this thread isn't about owning just 1 ukulele; it is about playing one particular uke often.

    I can be totally happy and satisfied with owning just the 1 uke that's on my wall (since, really, that's all I play); I can definitely see the view point of adherents to owning just a single uke. However, everybody is different (otherwise the world would be pretty boring), so I understand the fun in having many ukuleles around (although I only keep 1 ukulele on the wall hangers, I currently own 6 ukes).

    Like Jerry, I am endlessly fascinated by the way different ukuleles sound and play. I have experienced the difference between Koa, Mahogany and other woods. How different wood tops alter the way the uke sounds. And, how the build design and construction can also affect the results.

    The journey has been a lot of fun, and I thoroughly enjoy the exploration. I can't play more than 2 or 3 hours before the arthritis in my hands flares up to the point where I can no longer continue. So I enjoy buying and selling ukuleles as well as playing them. I am curious. "UAS" is a humorous term for satisfying that curiosity. Or, I may be a hoarder. One or the other.

    There are lots of us that own several ukes. Some of us play more than one size. This means that we have knowledge about various instruments, materials, brands, builders, strings and musics. And most of us are quite willing to share that knowledge with others. Helping others to decide what instrument to buy or accessory or repair or whatever.

    It also means that luthiers and companies, large and small, are supported to feed our "habit."

    Rather than cars, guns, cameras, stamps, coins, stuffed animals or bric-a-brac we choose to collect ukuleles. Or just expand our playing experiences with different instruments whilst searching for the grail. The "ONE" we totally bond with.

    It isn't for everyone. But here on the Forum people can share their experiences with one instrument or several. And I think our collective exposure and understanding is the richer for it.
    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.

    My wall, they don't get played much at all, except for the Ubass. The ones I play the most are in cases with humidfiers...
