    Richmond VA. Anyone familiar with those brands or even with this particular store?

    There is a lot of info here on all the brands listed on the web page you linked to. A single-word search on any of them will yield many posts, especially Kanilea and Kala.

    Happy Uke Hunting!

    Not familiar with the shop but they appear to have a selection of brands that works from intro/beginner to higher end (Kanilea) that covers decent range of price & potential quality. I suppose it's going to depend what of those brands they have in stock/ on hand and whether any sound good to you and fit your budget.
    Soprano: Brüko longneck, maple, arched back :: Concert: KPK acacia, Ono walnut
    Tenor: Kala okoume slothead (low G), LoPrinzi cherry (high G) :: Baritone: Brüko mahogany (dGBE), Lanikai S-B
    Shared: Pono TE-1 :: Reverb Tin-Bin Ukulele

    From what is on the website, they have a nice selection and several choices. Have you stopped by to see what they actually carry in the store? My local shop is doing more to increase stock on site, but for the longest time the answer usually was, "We don't have it here, but we can order it." I hope they carry a lot of instruments for you to get your hands on. Lots of good brands on that web page.

    I was there a couple of weeks ago. It seems to me that what was on the website was what was in the store. Add up all the Ukes on display at the area's two Guitar Centers and the one Sam Ash and this place still had more of a selection. Do stop in. You'll be glad you did.

    (Note: Yes, I know this is my first post. I am not affiliated in any way with this store - I just finally found something I can comment on.)

    Definitely a far better selection than the stores in my area, and that includes the independent ones. Kanilea is a higher-end brand, the rest are great for starter and mid-level ukes. Go and check out what they have, and see what you like

    Just for comparison, I have to drive to another state if I want to try out any K brands. I can find Kala, Lanikai, and Cordoba ukes here easily (well, maybe the new Martins, which don't interest me), but that's about it. Anything on the level of even a Mainland or Ohana is hard to find. I don't live in the boonies, either.

    Tommy Rodriguez is a builder in Richmond (who's brand this store carries). Jon is selling a beautiful one right now in the marketplace http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/...ickory-Soprano

    I'd say your lucky to have a nice uke store like this in a nice area of Richmond. (I used to live in the Richmond Area)
