BugsGear Aqulele Review

The folks at BugsGear Ukulele have released a brand new plastic ukulele. I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of them.

It’s a soprano size uke with 14 frets (well the bottom string has 18).   The bridge is innovative with the ability to tie the end of the string in a knot, and then feed it through the top.

The back, sides, and neck are a single piece of molded plastic.

It has geared tuners that seem to work really well.

It comes in three colors.  (Orange is my favorite!)

Ukulele Hanger Giveaway from UKEonomics

My friends over at the UKEonomics blog are having a giveaway.   They are giving away two beautiful wall hangers.  All you need to do is take a picture showing where you store your ukes, and fill out a basic form.  (Click here for more details)

The picture can be serious or silly.  Just get creative.

Aren’t they pretty?  

Here is my entry. I need a wall hanger so I can get my ukuleles out of the attic and into the house.  🙂
