Vangoa 23 inch mahogany concert ukulele bundle (VU403) review – bringing a little Hawaii home

REVIEW – Whenever I hear the ukulele, I’m transported back to my childhood and seeing Tiny Tim playing and singing “Tiptoe Through the Tulips”.  If you’re too young, a quick search will take you to it.  Yes, that can scar someone for life.  But since then, there have been plenty of terrific ukulele performances, including …

D’Addario’s NS Micro tuner keeps shrinking

I’ve been using D’Addario NS Micro clip-on tuners on all of my ukuleles for a few years now because they are small enough to leave on the head stocks of my instruments without getting in the way of my playing or when the ukuleles are stored in their cases. D’Addario have a new version of …

Ukulele’s made of plant fiber the next big thing?

I posted this earlier today on my Ukulele Review site: Some people may march to the beat of a different drummer, but as a fan of 4 stringed instruments you might strum to the rhythm of a different ukulele. We’ve reviewed ukuleles made of plastic like the Flea and the BugsGear, and we’ve even shown …

BugsGear Aqulele plastic ukulele review
