Kala Pocket Ukuleles starting to appear in the wild!

Posted in Ukulele Deals, Ukulele News on April 14th, 2010 by Uke Guy – Be the first to comment

I've been waiting for the Kala Pocket Ukulele to make its appearance "in the wild", so to speak, for a few weeks now.  If you recall, Kala sent me the Acacia model to test and review and I freaking love it.  It's adorable, beautifully made and it sounds fantastic!  But, I've been getting a lot of questions like "Where can I get one?",  "How much will they cost?" and so on.  I had originally heard that list on the Mahogany was going to be around $299 and list on the Acacia was $399.  Yup, don't let the size fool you.  These are beautiful, high quality instruments... they just happen to be teenie tiny.

The first place that I heard about the Kala Pocket Ukulele was Easy Music Center.  I don't see a notice on their site that they have them for sale, yet, but it might be worthwhile contacting them.  (UPDATE: They do have them at Easy Music Center!  In fact, you can even see them in the picture below.  Peter, said if you are interested to just e-mail him at [email protected] and he'll hook you up!  Make sure and remember to mention Ukulele Guy to get the good deal.)  Besides, wouldn't you want to buy a Ukulele from a store that has the WALL OF UKULELES [tm]! ;)  Check it out:

But, for those of you who just can't wait, I have seen a few of these beauties popping up on eBay.  So, here's what's currently out there right now.  Good luck!

Video: When I’m Cleaning Windows (with Kala Pocket Uke)

Posted in Ukulele Videos on February 17th, 2010 by Uke Guy – Be the first to comment

I finally got a few free minutes during lunch to make a video showing off the Kala pocket ukulele.
I think that the powers that be must have known I only had a few minutes, though because they kept effing with me.  I'd play the song perfectly and the cat would run by and mess it up.  Or, the shot was great and my brain turned off.  It seemed like it was something every time, so finally, I just decided that I was going to do one more and that was it.  Of course my freaking knee was covering the pocket uke the whole time though.  Doh!

Next time I'll be more careful to let you see the uke while I'm playing it.  Anyway, this song is one of my favorites to play (even if I can't always remember all the words) and my son Simon really loves it as well.  He usually sings the chorus with me if he's anywhere near while I play it.  So, that's pretty fun.  He and I have a Ramones cover band also, (we're called "Second Verse, Same as the First") so maybe I can convince him to make some videos with me of that action.

Anyway, if you have ever watched George Formby play this on Youtube then you'll notice that he uses different chords.  I learned it this way and I guess it just stuck so there's no undoing it now.

Peter from Easy Music Center, in Hawaii, just sent me an e-mail with a link to a video showing off the pocket ukulele.   Seeing how small it actually is in the video is a little bit mind-blowing.  Especially when you see it next to the Soprano (which completely dwarfs it).  The guy who is playing the pocket ukulele looks like he is struggling a little bit, but I suppose that makes sense. It's probably a bit of an adjustment to get your hands used to that tiny thing [insert your own joke here].  But, at the end of the video, the poket uke player really starts kicking out the jams.  Anyway, enough of my yakking.  Check it out for yourself.

Kala Pocket Ukulele (I will kill to get one)

So, I was just doing random Google searches for ukulele (as I always do) and I came across a post on EasyMusicCenter.com talking about Kala giving someone a Pocket Ukulele.  Huh?  Pocket Ukulele?  Do you mean a Soprano Uke?  Well, apparently not.  Check out this picture of the Kala Pocket Ukulele.

"Dear Kala, How the hell can Ukulele Guy get one of these beauties?"  Seriously, I didn't even see them on the Kala website.  I would consider punching a nun to get a shot at it, that's how desperate I am.  Well.. maybe not a nun, but certainly an old lady dressed in black and white.

If anyone has more information, let me know!
