Ok. First the bad news. This sale is only going on for 3 more days! Yikes! But, the good news is that it's up to 85% off of accessories. So, if you are looking for ukulele strings or maybe a new case, I don't think it's going to get any cheaper than this. I wish I'd known about it earlier, so I could have given everyone more notice. Stupid non-ukulele-related real life and job are cutting into my uke time.
I've talked about the Uke Thong for a few months now and I kept promising that I was going to make a video to show you what it is, exactly. It has a pretty exciting name, right? I mean who wouldn't want something cute to match their Uke bra and garters.
Nah nah nah.. think "guitar strap" and you are closer to the mark. But, that's still good, though, because I've had quite a few people ask me how to modify their ukulele to use a guitar strap (don't do that). This is the solution for those folks and also for anyone who needs their right hand completely unencumbered for their "shredding".
Anyway, today I finally made the video because I remembered that I was supposed to send this particular Uke Thong to Jon Spencer after he wrote a guest post for the site ("Guest Post: Cigar Box Ukuleles with Jon Spencer" to be exact). A note to future guest post writers, I guess. If I promise to send you something, make sure and hound me about it. I'm liable to see a shiny piece of tin foil, chase it and then completely forget about my promise.
Anyhoo, as you might have gathered, the Uke Thong is the next best thing for those of you who need a strap for your uke. They are only $10.95 and come in variety of colors. If I had known this one was going to Jon, I suppose I would have gotten the Camo one. As it is, he gets pink and black checkers. But, if he still has his Vanns sneakers from 8th grade then he's likely to match, so that's a bonus. Here's an image of the Uke Thong and a link to where you can get them on eBay.
So, if you didn't get what you needed yet, head on over. Seems like if you are going to need strings, cables, straps, stands or cases, this is the freaking week to buy them! Seriously, you should probably check it out.
