    Thanks for asking! Here's a really bad photo of them.

    The far left is one of those Hricane travel tenors. I have strung reentrant dGBE, just to play around. It's a comfortable size to play, and worth every penny of the $65 I paid for it. From China. Spruce top, laminated spalted maple back and sides.

    Second is a soprano Surfulele made by Bradford Donald (BuzzBD here) in Hawaii. Brad gave it to me last year at this time when I wasn't able to go to Hawaii because of a medical emergency. It's got a solid koa top and laminate birch, I think, for the back and sides. It's my granddaughter's favorite, maybe because it has a picture of a seal on the back.

    Third is a soprano Kiwaya KTS-6 from Eddie Montana's estate, sold to me by Travis Harrelson. Solid mahogany, classic soprano.

    Fourth a concert Kala Elite 1KOA-C. Currently strung low G. Handmade in California.

    Last an Ono concert made in Oregon by David Ingalls (saltytri here). Alaskan yellow cedar top, big leaf maple sides, back and appointments African padauk. Bought it from a member who donated the money from the sale to The Life You Can Save, so as far as I'm concerned, I got it for free--with a donation to a cause I am happy to support.

    Not shown because not currently residing at my house, and may never return: Enya Nova concert uke. Black plastic everything.

    I've bought and sold so many of these things that I could never say I will never sell any particular one, except, of course, the one from Brad. I'd be an idiot to sell the Kiwaya, since I did once, and had to find another to buy because I missed it. I can't imagine ever being able to afford to replace the Ono, nor wanting to. And I have no desire to sell the Kala Elite, either. Now that my tastes have gone into the rarified territory of the Ono, my choices have narrowed, which gives me a lot more time to play.

    I still love your Howlet. I didn't know you'd bought a Blue Frog. I'd love to see that someday.

    Teri

    Hawaii: Maui Music, KoAloha, Kamaka, Keli'i
    Connecticut: Magic Fluke (yes, the early ones were made in New Hartford, CT!)
    Massachusetts: Magic Fluke
    California: Deering

    I believe Peter Lieberman has built some Maui Music ukes in New Jersey and/or Florida.
    Godin has a factory in New Hampshire, but my Godin uke was made in Canada (Quebec). If yours says it's made in the US, it's from the NH factory!
