I’m not any kind of expert but have bought a few ukuleles both in-store and online…
In my opinion
I think with online.. you can get a good idea of the quality and basic sound and tones like woods and size etc from reviews and demonstrations/comparisons…
and you could go instore and try out sizes and woods etc to see what you are looking for,
But for the quirks of each different ukulele, I think even when you buy instore it’s all about the getting to know it afterwards.
Trying different strings and wearing it in… And growing to love it’s unique features be it look sound or feel.
My maestro seems SO very different now to when I first bought it because it’s so comfortable now from so much use and totally different strings to when I got it. Tried a few and ended up with worth brown lights. It’s perfect now.
I have started buying online because as you say there is more of a range.. and I think it’s really important to get an ukulele you find attractive so that you pick it up all the time. Better for the ukulele and better for your skills!
I have only bought online from brands that people rave about the quality and I have had winners both times.
Anyway that’s my rookie input
All the best in finding the right one
That is so cool!! It reminds me of your cute squirrels
And I am also jealous you have racoons! Adorable.
And thank you so much.
I love the new Mya moe so much but still getting used to the extra strings so there’s the occasional twang hahahah. Nothing a bit of practice won’t fix.
When I went to the states I really liked how you could get root beer on tap everywhere… It is very similar to our ‘sarsparilla’ which is my favourite but you can’t get it everywhere let alone free refills!
I also loved Sedona. I got cowgirl boots there and it was sooo pretty❤️
That would be pretty interesting Kahai!
Things are getting pretty creative😆
