Back from Palm Strings and back in the shop
Palm Strings was a grand time! This was our first real venture into Southern California and we truly enjoyed ourselves. Got to visit with lots of old friends, make lots of new friends, hear plenty of music and ended up coming back with a whole bunch of new ideas for ukuleles. We’ll be going full speed from now until Reno and beyond.
We’re working on a special Triumph Bonneville-inspired ukulele. This is one of those ideas that pops into your head and then simply won’t go away. We’re also working on another semi-hollow super-soprano in the spirit of ukulele Maria (ukulele Maria was delivered in Palm Springs!). Then there’s a sub-soprano code-named “Little Ali” in exotic plywood (really nice plywood though) with a Mammoth Kauri soundboard. Not to mention a travel-depth tenor in cedar, a left-handed 5-string with a Manzer wedge, several different IDeales, a new steel-string bass in mahogany and a partridge in a pear tree. Indeed!
