    Default FYI new Moore Bettah auction at HMS

    This is not my instrument but I know new Moore Bettah ukes always attract attention here. Bidding opened at US$9,000 on 7 June and is already up to $11,525 at this time, with 5 days to go. These decorated ones are undoubtedly brilliant craftsmanship and seem to attact eye-watering prices.

    Wow what a piece of art. Though it is not clear if the proceeds will go toward a foundation or organization associated with the valley. Usually they tell what this is for.

    I love the artistry of the uke. For the last few auctions that I looked at they were for good causes but I look at this on small phone and did not see the cause it was for that's why I was asking. Could of course just be for the cause of Chuck which is also a good one.

    It's so beautiful.
    The sound, as played by those brilliant players, is sublime.
    $15000 (so far...) is an absurd amount of money to spend on a small, wooden musical instrument!

    This is definitely a fun one to watch. I hope that whoever wins the auction will play it, and enjoy their very special (and very expensive) ukulele.
