My Ukulele Collection
People always want to know what ukuleles I use, and where they can get them from. Here's my current favourites, but eventually I'll write something about ALL of my ukuleles!
I wrote more about this uke in this blog entry, but in short it's a really nice cross between a soprano and a concert ukulele. It has the slightly tinnier sound of a soprano, but the extended fretboard of a concert, and is a very versatile instrument!
It also has these wacky golden tuning pegs that I thought were awesome!
This was the first ukulele Kala sent to me, and it was a great welcome to the family!
It had a really distinctive sound to it - richer than a lot of the cheaper sopranos I've played on - as well as a beautiful satin mahogany finish.
If it's within your budget, this is a great uke to start on.
This is my August 2017 Kala ukulele, and it's really impressing me so far.
This uke was designed to be taken on the road, so it's super light - in fact it weights just one pound! - and less than two inches thick. Not only that, but it comes with an awesome Kala gig bag so it will be well looked after while you're on the go.
Despite being so thin, the sound quality is not compromised whatsoever, and in fact, surprisingly, this is one of the loudest ukuleles I've ever played, and has a very nice natural sounding tone.
It's made out of spruce wood, which gives it a bright and cheerful appearance, as well as a warm tone.
This was my first tenor ukulele, and I really loved it! A tenor uke is just slightly bigger than a concert ukulele, but has an even fuller, richer sound. I started off as a guitar player, so I've always liked the bigger ukes.
This was my July 2017 ukulele of the month! With a mahogany body, and rosewood fingerboard and bridge, this is a great intermediate uke if you're looking to step up your game!
The tuning and intonation on this one really impressed me.
This is one of the newest additions to my ukulele collection, and it's awesome! It has a hollow metal body (the oil can) electric uke, so you need to plug it in to an amp to really rock out.
It has nickel-wound strings and a pick-up, so it's basically like a mini electric guitar - plug it into an amp and you can do pretty much anything with it!
