NAMMit! I want!!!!!

NAMM is going full tilt now this weekend in L.A. and the U.U. guys are there, as well as our friends from Ohana (Ken Middleton), Mainland (Mike aka hoosierhiver) and Lanikai (Matt aka thejumpingflea). And they're starting to upload the photos, videos and product descriptions of all the new and exciting ukuleles.

And it makes me ache. Some examples:

The "baroque-ulele" (photo thejumpingflea)

The Kala "Pocket Uke " Koa sopranino

Ohana tenor resonator (with spokes-model Ken Middleton)

Oh, and don't forget Blackbird's new beauty, the tenor carbon fiber uke:

And yes, the rumors are true. There IS a "sitar-lele"! (also, by the look of it, a balalaika-lele!).


Yes. WANT!

Cool stuff! I wonder how that Pocket uke sounds...seems like the bridge is way at the bottom of the sound board, which is usually not a good thing...

The Tangi sopranino does the same thing with the bridge. It sounds great.
