    Default What Brand is That?

    I bet I'm not alone in this. Every time I see a ukulele - online or in person - I want to know what brand it is. I can often tell by the shape of the headstock or the logo on it.

    Christopher Davis-Shannon is using a new one - not his Martin. Can someone identify it?

    That's his Wunderkammer soprano. I like that headstock shape, similar to some old Hawaiian brands. The curly Kala one-off I posted recently looks similar.

    Along with being a sweet shape, that headstock edge looks chamfered. What a sweet uke.

    This was the order of what I noticed:

    1. Scarf (why?)
    2. Boobs
    3. Ukulele

    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!

    Those big scarves have become a fashion trend - often checkered B&W.

    I was just mildly amused that the uke was the first thing most people noticed but it was the last thing I noticed.

    When you said you noticed the scarf, I tried looking for a slanted joint in the neck - without success. Only then did I notice his apparel.
