    Red face Wanted: godin multiuke / blackbird farallon

    Hi, guys!

    Recently I've reveived good advices from my kind neighbours that I should try some "mute" ukes. Since I decide to follow their instructions, does anyone have a well-used godin multiuke to let go? As long as it does not sound so loud and clear, that'll be ok for me, because it was not in my buget earlier.

    Besides, still looking for a used blackbird farallon, with add-ons preferred.

    Located in LP, California. PayPal please. And I'd be great thankful if you would please package it tight.

    Thanks for reading. Any input would be welcomed, please PM me.

    A few days ago I saw a Multiuke on eBay, listed for about $1000, but, I find mine to be much louder than I expected when unplugged. It's a great instrument.

    for a more temporary solution, put some junk in your soundhole!

    some clean rags or silk juggling scarves

    What kind of uke is it?

    I find my Tenor Risa Solid (Stick) to be much quieter to practice with than my Godin MultiUke. It's also very compact for travel. Perfect for playing in a hotel room. Just loud enough to hear what I'm playing, but not keep my wife awake.

    Any solid electric will be quieter than the Godin. The Godin body has chambers routed out which allows the top to vibrate a bit making it loud enough for 3 or 4 people in a room to hear, but not annoy the neighbors in an adjacent room.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.

    I have a multiuke listed on UU right now. Solid koa. Check it out! It belongs to a friend and I'm selling it for her. If you have any questions, ask away.

    Hey guys,

    The Farallon on Flea Market is sold. I bought it last week, he just didn’t update the listing. It’s a good one..Good luck in your search!

    Thanks, Mike! Saw your discussion about the strings at the other post, have you tried any nylons on your multiuke?
