Went to a music shop and browsed the ukuleles there. Was set on getting a Lanikai which is an established brand but was a bit out of the budget. Then Hua Hin's k121 caught my eye. Does anyone know where i can find more information on this brand? Or this model? Or anyone has an opinion. It is a Thai brand though all ukes are now coming from China. It sounds good but could not find out what wood etc it is made from. Tought I could search it on the net but there's hardly any. What i found were youtube videos in thai...comparing 3 ukes...from Lanikai,Hua Hin and another brand (might be Thai) as well. I hope some can give their (expert/experience) opinion. Hua Hin is a place in Thailand but the maker of the Uke is also adopted the same name. Thank y
Sorry keyboard and cursor is jumping lol should be 'has also adopted' and 'thank you'.
I am by musical trade a guitarist and know little about ukes but coincidentally I have one in my flat (apartment) now that belongs to a friend of mine. I am not sure what the options are where you live as your profile page does not indicate your location, nor do I know if you are a beginner or experienced player but this one is a Mahalo which was pretty inexpensive in the UK. It has a decent tone and seems to hold it's tuning fairly well. Certainly, my friend is only learning but she seems happy enough with it. I have had a bit of a bash on it myself and it seems great. This link may be of use. ukulelehunt.com/buy-ukulele/... Hope this assists, fergy.
There is a long list of uke brands. Inexhausive but since it's not a very popular instrument compared to the guitar and piano, most music shops only carry a few brands here in asia. Take a look at this and tell me what do you think! youtube.com/watch?v=oLOhU4QX...
