Why Are You Treating Your Ukulele Like A Museum Piece? RANT

2017-12-05T16:50:21.730+00:00

One of the more common questions I see from new ukulele players on the many forums around on social media relates to minor bits of damage and strumming marks, and more particular, how they can prevent them. What's going on here? Why the desire to keep a ukulele in shop condition?

2017-11-09T11:15:13.764+00:00

Got A Ukulele and Copyright

2017-11-09T11:15:29.166+00:00

It's really sad to have to post this, but I am getting really tired of other websites using my content without my permission. It stinks. And even more sadly, writing this post won't change a damn thing.

The thing is, I am not a business. I don't have a team of lawyers, so there is little you can do when it DOES happen, but equally there is something else I want to point out. And that's that I am not trying to come across like some restrictive loon in stopping people using things. I want to be fair.

Kala Elite 3KOA-TG Tenor Ukulele - REVIEW

2017-11-09T11:16:16.909+00:00

I am extremely privileged in writing this ukulele blog. And I say that because it gives me the opportunity to borrow both a wide range of instruments, but also some truly beautiful ones. And I don't feel like I am pre-judging this review when I say this one certainly fits into the beautiful category. Say hello to the Kala Elite 3KOA-TG.

2017-11-09T11:56:07.389+00:00

You will no doubt remember the  buzz around social media when I reviewed the last HPL ukulele from Enya. Frankly it went completely crazy, with some places selling out of stock.

Bonanza Ukuleles - HPL Concert - REVIEW

2017-11-09T11:57:47.417+00:00

There are two things you probably know that I like reviewing on Got A Ukulele. The first is luthier or 'non-factory' built instruments. The second are ukuleles that are just very different and 'shake the game up' a little. And this fits both those criteria. Lets take a look at this HPL Concert ukulele from Bonanza Ukuleles.
