Help! Which one should I buy???!!

Hey, guys! I just finished my test to recieve my G.E.D. (hope I pass) and I'm celebrting by buying a new uke!!!1

After minutes of research, I've narrowed my choice down to two sick ukes! The Kala jangowood baritone or the Ohana sopranino. I know they're very similar, but let me tell you what I prefer in a uke (not that I actually own one - yet!):

1) Mellow deep tone
2) bright and sharp sound
3) electric
4) slotted headstock
5) acoustic
6) sound like a guitar
7) Solid laminate
8) 2 necks
9) nylon-wound steel strings
10) cup holder
11) aquamarine
12) friction tuners
13) buttercup

I can spend $38 on it. If I could spend less, great!

Oh, and I prefer tenors. Any ideas? Thanks!!!!1

i don't actually own one, but i hear kamaka is the best uke on the planet. that and jake has one. that makes it the best and the rest are shite. if you buy the same uke as a pro, it makes you a pro. that's the secret the uke industry doesn't want you to know. oh and don't forget the string brand. it's soooooo important.

fea.

I'd definitely go for the Jangowood! I have heard from a friend of mine who knows someone who owns an uke that the Jangowood body is mouth-blown by hard-working disabled Bengali children in the forest of Jango!

@UKISOCIETY: Oh...so sorry I almost forgot: Congrats on the G.E.D.!! In the case you don't pass I'll play a cover song (of my choice) for you!

Cup holders are for n00bs. Deach has a uke that holds icecream. If you send him a PM, he'll give you one for free as long as you make a video about it.

Also, I have come to the realization that I am in fact, a solid laminate.

With all due respect, you are treading rule 2 here. Please verify and correct as needed.

Grumpy Coyote said...

Dems secret links. I kind of like that "feature", but it is a little puzzling.
