    Default Instead of NAMM: Share Ukulele Related News for 2021

    The annual winter show of the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) has been canceled this year because of COVID-19. Nevertheless, manufacturers will probably be releasing all sorts of new models, ideas and prototypes in the forthcoming few weeks. Instead of our annual NAMM thread, I thought we might just go ahead and collect all Ukulele related news here.

    So if you see or hear some interesting news about new Ukulele models, new designs, new materials, new strings, new case solutions, new pickups, new capos, etc., please share them in this thread, post links to demo videos or social media channels with previews of what's to expect on the Ukulele market for 2021.
