About time I posted a couple of highlights of mine from the NAMM show in California that is going on right now. There really so much to share, and great to see such a massive ukulele presence at the show, so I will start off with a couple from Ukulele Underground. Aldrine really does get the great interviews.
First up, friend of Got A Ukulele and a chap I have been lucky enough to jam with on several occasions, Ken Middleton from Ohana ukes talking about some of their new models and the future for the uke. Really looking forward to that new resonator Ken, and the sopranino looks very sweet.
And then on to Joe Souza, MD of one of my favourite ukulele companies, Kanile'a from Hawaii. Few things I am drooling over here. Firstly, those full on Kanile'a brand slotted headstocks, secondly the Islander arm rests, and thirdly that new bass uke!
And on both videos, really interesting to hear their views on where they see the ukulele heading at the moment.
