Thread: How Many Ukes Do You Own?

  1. #1

    Question How Many Ukes Do You Own?

    I did a search of the subject and I thought sure I would find something, but nothing came up. I used my title for the search. The uke porn is so huge and some don't say how many they have. Also the number could have changed since their last posting there.

    My brother wondered why I have so many ukes (8 when I get the Flight in July). I told him there are uke lovers out there that have way more than me.

    So the question like the title ... how many ukes do you own and do you plan to buy more?

    I'm going to stop at 8, unless I decide to get the Flight Centurion, but I think the Pathfinder will be enough for me.

    Like that old SNL sketch from the 70's where they said "show us your guns" ... show us your ukes numbers!

    Thanks for reading my post.

    I have 8 as well. I started playing in July of 2013 and the first year I had 16, then culled them to 4. Since then I've gone up to 8, which is the maximum that will fit in a humidified display I made in a bookshelf. Helps keep my UAS under control. Much less control with my bass ukes/mini bass guitars, I have 28, but that many will only fit on my closet rack. Here's the entire lot.

    More than I should, but not enough. Ha Ha. The UPS driver just keeps bringing them to the house for some reason.

    Also, I have already given two away. That's fun too. I gave one to a guitar playing friend I have known for 20+ years and once he figured out corresponding chords he was playing songs in about 5 minutes so I sent one home with him. Also gave one to my son's future bride. She said she'd give a Uke a whirl.

    Why stop at 8? It is like saying I will only ever eat 8 dishes! Now one cannot eat all the dishes on the same day but over the span of a lifetime why not sample a lot? And keep the dishes that are your favorite..

    I have owned over 40 ukes, I sold the ukes that did not get played a lot. Pretty much every uke I have owned has been a good to great uke.. but I only hold on to the irreplaceable ones..

    Our ears and hands are sense organs and the pleasure we derive is real.. technically you need only one uke but that is like saying you can live your entire life eating a single dish.. there is a difference between hoarding and sampling.

    I am big on sampling. My pinball machine collection is sitting at 17 games right now but I have owned over another 50 games that have come and gone. I pretty much usually have about 20-21 at most times. Sold a few lately to make room for new ones on order and some future releases coming out later in the year.

    Trying not to do the same thing with Ukes. Ha Ha. At least the Ukes are smaller and easier to move than pinball machines. Guess I like collecting things I can play !

    I like how you think kerneltime. Kind of my approach on things too.

    I have 4 ukuleles and a banjouke. I don't want to own more than that. If I buy one, I'll sell one.

    Way too many. I'm afraid to count. I should sell the tenors, as I only play baritone and concert these days.
