Congratulations, Phil! I’ve never played a Riptide but I see they get pretty good reviews. Hope to hear some smokin’ uke tracks soon
Ha, I’m afraid you’re going to have to wait a little while. I’ve got a bit to learn. Really haven’t done much guitar at all but have always wanted to delve into it more (piano always made more since). Buying a uke was basically a good excuse to learn. I got the rhythm thing down… it’s switching between chords. I’ll get there.
Just went on a whim to Guitar Center in Indianapolis and…
It’s a Riptide UC-11NS Solid Top Acacia Concert Uke. I loved its sound and feel the best. I know the holes are a little unconventional.. but I thought it gave it a cool look. Also, it was the only one with another tag on that said it had Aquila strings. I took that as my sign! Thanks for the insight everyone!
Thanks everyone! Keep the info coming.
Stuck_in_the_Basement – I actually own a RODE NT1-A … so no investment needed there.
Once I have the time, I’ll look further into your suggestions and let you know what I decide to do.
Also, I’m seeing that I should not go for the pickup – there is no way I’ll be performing any type of stringed instrument live any time soon!
Hey friends, drummer/pianist here looking to purchase a Uke. Needless to say, I could use your help!
Due to some birthday cash and a few Guitar Center gift cards from Christmas, I have between $300-$400 to play with.
It’s obvious the Ukulele has become quite a popular instrument around here. I could use your advice in knowing what to look for! Have you bought one recently after doing some research? Share some of your findings! Would you suggest one with a quarter-inch input? Any particular brand/model that stands out above the rest? What other suggestions do you have?
Thank you so much!
Wow, absolutely incredible. Congrats!!
Here’s the Notes post. The winners were announced in the final comment at the very bottom of the post: http://notes.envato.com/general/help-choose-10-items-for-the-next-envato-bundle/
Some bundles are bigger than others. I was in the birthday bundle which may be one of the better ones and it was huge for me. Besides the exposure it was a nice payday, you will want to be chosen for this.
Would you say it helped “launch” your Upbeat Ukulele as well?
Thanks for all the birthday wishes, everyone!
What??? I made the voting cut? Thanks for the info Brandon! Heading to notes now to check it out…. And on my birthday, too! it was on my birthday last year that Envato made me the weekly feature! Their timing is impeccable.
Yeah, I don’t really get it either. I say submit it. If they choose it, they choose it. If they don’t, they don’t. You got nothing to lose.
