Take a look at some of the video reviews, they are about the looks, 'feeling' and the basic sound of the instruments. Short, fun reviews. No real technical analysis, just a subjective opinion. Of course, opinions vary, but these are ours!

Reports and galleries of pictures from festivals, details about ukulele players, retailers and so on. You know - the other stuff. If you went to GNUF 2017 or want to see what it was like, check out our video & previews with songbook and a fun video to play along with.
