    Default How many ukes did you buy in 2020?

    Yesterday, I decided to count the number of ukes I bought since I started playing this year.

    When I realized I couldn't track them in my head, I started a spreadsheet. Just when I thought I had listed them all, I found a few more when I reviewed my purchases online (I even missed a uke that I've praised on this very forum!). Then I remembered 2 mores ukes that I had given to my parents.

    Anyway, since I've got this list in a spreadsheet, here're some stats:

    73% sopranos
    23% concerts
    4% tenors

    12% $0 - $100
    38% $100 - $500
    38% $500 - $1000
    12% $1000+

    I bought two bass ukes and one tenor ukulele, but I bought two others last year that arrived in January of this year, though both still keeps me in the 1-5 category. I also sold one tenor uke, and if it happens in the next day, one bass uke.

    That 4% figure indicates you're into Jerry territory. Wonder if he bought more than 25 this year. Of course I'm assuming that's one tenor - if you bought 2 tenors, that's 4% of 50 ukes ... etc, etc!!!

    Only 2 for me this year, but still 2 more than I planned.

    Didn't buy any this year. In fact, put me down as -1, as I sold one!

    Bought two, sold one. I was going to ask, where is the poll for how many ukes you sold in 2020??

    As a performer stuck at home most of the year, I barely bought any music gear in 2020, let alone a uke. In fact, it's crossed my mind several times to just sell my PA and start over when things are less crappy.

    Perhaps only in this regard, 2020 has been a good year. I’ve sold or traded 5, and added 3. And along the way, most importantly, I met some very gracious folks from this board. One can never have too many friends. I think I’m set now on ukes but look forward to making new friends.

    Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a uke which is basically the same thing.

    Ukes are a lot like potato chips. It's hard to stop with just one!
