Hey! I have a Soprano ukulele, and I am wanting to get a concert ukulele. I want one that sounds good. Any one have recomendations? I have looked at several, but could never make up my mind.July 9, 2018 at 1:33 pm #17663
Check out Islander Ukulele, they are the sister brand of Kanile’a. Angelo has a tenor, great sounding ukes!July 9, 2018 at 1:40 pm #17664
Here’s an awesome one from HMS: https://www.theukulelesite.com/islander-acacia-concert-ukulele-ac-4.htmlJuly 9, 2018 at 10:15 pm #17665
Thank you! It sounds like a great ukulele, but it seems to be out of stock. Will it be back in stock soon, do you know?July 10, 2018 at 12:56 am #17666
No idea. Give ’em a call, they are good folks 🙂July 10, 2018 at 10:23 am #17667
Okay! I might look into that. Thanks!July 10, 2018 at 6:52 pm #17669biggoombaParticipant
Is there a certain price range that you are looking for? One ukulele that I found I really like was a Kala with a solid spruce stop. I ended up buying a clamp on tuner and then went to a local shop and tried out everything they had hanging on the wall – all of them were out of tune so thats why I brought my tuner along. I actually brought my old Ukulele along with me too (Kala Pacific Walnut – which is also a pretty decent uke) so I could compare. It was a challenge for me because I am left handed and all the ukes were strung for right handed players but after almost an hour of trying out about everything could get my hands on I ended up with a solid spruce top – sounded a lot better than the Pacific Walnut uke I had been using – it was a Tenor though and cost $240. I think a solid spruce top with mahogany sides Concert is about $160 or so. I am not a Kala nut but seems like all the shops around me only carry Kala so thats what I ended up with.
I have to admit though – that Islander looks really nice. There is a guy on youtube who reviews a ton of ukes too – gotaukulele or something like that

Thanks! I probably won’t want to spend more than 200. I’ll check out the Kala ones out too! My first ukulele was only $50.00. It sounds pretty good for the price, but I want to get a concert one. The one I have right now is Makala.July 11, 2018 at 9:38 pm #17673kanae926Participant
Marni – the Concert size that Andrew mentioned is also going to be available soon at Uke Republic, but they currently have the Soprano size (20 frets) available now.
Just a thought!July 12, 2018 at 12:34 pm #17674
Thanks for the suggestion! Those look really nice!! I will look into those too!July 12, 2018 at 6:13 pm #17675
