    Default Request review of Mainland Ukuleles

    i U.G. Friends,

    I bought my 1st ukulele about 3 months ago and It hooked my hard. I love playing it. the day it arrived I went down to the kids play room once they went to bed and started playing. 5 hours later I realized 2 things. 1st I found the outlet that I have been looking for. Second i had to get up in 3 hours! I truly enjoy playing and wish I had bought 1 years early, but at least I bought 1.

    I had decided to step up to the next quality level of ukulele. My beginner ukulele is a Lanikai LU-21 Soprano Ukulele which is an awesome started ukulele but I want to move up but I don't want to spend $1,000 or more on something a Martin or Kamaka (at least not yet ). I found a ukulele named Mainland Ukulele, but i can not find many reviews on it. Can any one give me anything they know about the company and the instruments? I like the fact that their prices and I also like that they are solid Mahogany. They look beautiful but have no idea how they sound and play. I do not know of any dealers in my Area, (New Jersey) So I am going to the Ukulele population hear on Underground Ukulele. Can anyone please offer any info about Mainland Ukulele? I look forward to hearing from anyone and everyone. Thanks,

    Sincerely,
    Rob

    Yes, if you do a search, you will get an ton of threads from satisfied customers. Mike at Mainland is great– really good customer service. I have two Mainlands, and I think they are excellent for their price.

    You are in the right place - the more you read on this forum, the more you will find people recommending Mainlands. I have a Mainland Concert and I absolutely adore it.

    As suggest in your other thread, if you do a quick search you can find a bunch of reviews. The word is very positive. In fact, it's going to be my next purchase.

    Mainland kicks all kinds of booty. Hard.

    Happy shopping!
