    There are a lot of things you could compare your uke costs to.

    Golf is a notoriously expensive hobby, greens fees can cost a small fortune. Other people are into cars or clothes/jewelry or dining out at fancy restaurants or whatever.

    My husband spent more on a home theater sound system than I've spent on all my ukes put together. But I knew it meant a lot to him, and he knew my ukes meant a lot to me. So we didn't begrudge each other such things.

    EDIT: Oh, and I have seven tenors. One each of soprano, concert and baritone, and a guitalele. But tenors are my thing.

    I'm going to bring it to my uke class tonight in Berkeley.
    Sorry, off sale topic - but was wondering if you're doing the advanced classes at DaSilva or a member of the Berk Uke Club?? Was curious about what kind of turn out those classes get & if it's worth the ~half-hour or so drive each way -- I'm sadly back on 'da mainland for what appears to be a fair stretch..

    I think the price is fine, your wife joined UU the day after you just to keep an eye on things and has already allocated the proceeds from the sale.

    Just tell spouse that each ukulele reminds you of a certain joyous event in your lives (think quickly of a few). Cement that by naming each ukulele appropriately. If it works, let me know and I'll try it, too.

    Ukuleles: Oscar Schmidt OU28T (T8), Lanikai LU-6 (T6), RISA Solid (C), Effin UkeStart (C), Flea (S)**
    Banjo-Ukes: Duke 10 (T)*, Lanikai LB6-S (S)*
    Tenor Guitars: Martin TEN515, Blueridge BR-40T

    The inventory is always in some flux, but that's part of the fun.

    No I took an intermediate class from Hiram Bell at Freight and Salvage. I've heard DaSilva is really good if you are an advance player - if that's who I'm thinking of. He has classes in his shop.

    Default Found a home.

    Going to give it to my mother in law. They just moved I to a retirement community that offers uke lessons. No doubt she will surpass my skills in three months!

    Mahalo for the replies & info, guys. DaSilva's sounds like a worthy endeavor, sonomjazz ... I'd really like to participate in any of his future luthiery workshops as well, so think I'll peruse the website & see if there's a way to receive info on upcoming events..

    Thanks again, and nice move on hookin'-up the m.in-law, steel rider - certainly a good way to spread some effective aloha!

    Hi, the picture shows the mainland with fret markers on 10 fret, I thought their tenors had the fret marker on 9th. Did you sell the mainland yet?
