    It’s a Kala ka-c concert. Not a top notch uke, but certainly better than the cheap little Denver I’ve been working with.

    I’m so excited. I went the store to order a Kala tenor but they finally had new stock in – tenor and concert. I liked the concert better.

    I may have lost all credibility in the store by playing Sponge Bob 😄

    Way to go, I just got my first Uke two weeks ago. Heck I would be impressed if someone played Sponge Pants Bob in the store. Congratulations on the new Uke. My daughter just picked up a Kala and loves it.

    I just got a new (to me), uke last week! What a sweet instrument
    I’ve been working pretty hard trying to improve my playing and was making ok progress. I decided that if I was going to be that serious, I deserved a really good instrument. Not that my Kala tenor and Cordoba bari aren’t pretty good, but…. Long story shorter, I got a Pono MTSHC….tenor, cedar top, cutaway for a decent, but still outrageous price. The problem is that now I have no excuses. I can’t blame the instrument for lousy music
    Well, yes I do..now. The “social” finger on my fretting hand lost a run in with a band saw this morning…sounds much worse than it is..just cut into the tip and the nail a bit, but it sure is sore, and I think it ruined my callus. LOL. I’ll probably be able to fret with it in a week or so.
    It’s really HARD to play without that finger!!

    Here’s a pic of my new uke

    Ouch James! Sorry to hear about the finger, but at least it wasn’t too bad 🙂 That Pono looks awesome, congrats! I loved the Pono I played at Uke Republic that we gave away the other month to Luke. It was such a great uke! I want one too, lol.

    I would like a new uke as got mine for my birthday last year from my daughter.its a little lilac coloured plywood soprano. It has brought me this far but I have been admiring a Luna dragonfly concert with solid spruce top and mahogany sides and good strings. What do you all think?? I like the size of the concert sits better in my arms, have borrowed one. Harder to push the strings down but maybe that will stop me pushing them sideways as I sometimes do with the Soprano. Will it really help improve my playing , improve the sound or should I stick with my plywood uke while I am still such a novice player.

    Hi Anne, actually I’d advise against purchasing a Luna. I’ve noticed that they have a quality control issue, which is something I talked about in our review of their pineapple ukulele. I’d go for a Kala instead. Great brand, great ukes!

    Thanks for the advice Andrew, I looked at the Kala’s and found one in my price range that had all the prerequisites I had decided on, solid spruce tone wood, mahogany body and Aquila strings. Haven’t hung about, ordered it today for delivery tomorrow!!! I am so excited it’s my present to myself on my 66th. Birthday. Thank you.

    ***Andrew (and others) please don’t share this video anywhere. Way too embarrassing. I’m just messing around.

    Lily, this one is for you. Forgive the terribleness. I’m just beginning to learn it.
