    Default Ukulele Sweet Spot

    There seems to be a lot of ukulele collection downsizing going on recently and lots of amazing deals in the marketplace.

    I've downsized to two tenors by selling and giving away my other ukes.

    It feels quite liberating to have simplified my ukulele choices and my other instruments have found really nice new homes.

    Any one else feel like this after a couple of years of UAS or is this just another phase of the syndrome? I'm hoping I've truly found my Ukulele Sweet Spot.

    I believe they call it remission Don. Take two aspirin and call me in the morning.

    I went through that with guitars, synthesizers, vinyl records, DVDs, even books...I gave away more than 30 boxes of books and a dozen boxes of DVDs to my local library.

    Somehow my "sweet spot" for ukes seems about a dozen...

    Well, I wasn't until you just brought it up Glenn... As long as you're enjoying it I'm happy.

    My sweet spot would be 2, low G & high G but my ideal number is higher.

    Yes, I agree with the concept of the "ukulele sweet spot." My UAS mostly had to do with finding the *right* uke to play that would least aggravate my fretting hand wrist/forearm pain issues. My UAS journey revealed that I needed a uke with a narrow nut width and thin neck profile. That said, I feel very much at home with my latest (and dare I say, last) acquisition -- my Martin T1K tenor -- I love this uke. Furthermore, because the uke is so comfortable for me to play, I can play for longer periods of time and more frequently -- and that makes me so very happy. However, I also have another uke as a travel/back-up uke.
