Apparently there’s a new size ukulele that appeared at NAMM this year? Kala has a pocket ukulele. Is it smaller than the Ohana sopranino or is it Kala’s answer to the sopranino?
I love my Ohana sopranino, although I have loaned it to my sister right now. Hopefully she will enjoy it as much as I miss playing it.
The pocket uke appears playable but I wonder if it has the same volume of the sopranino.
According to the YouTube video, it isn’t going to be available for purchase until the end of February or mid-March.
I wish I could see it beside the Ohana sopranino to see how much smaller it is, if it is. You have to wonder what the scale on the neck is like. Will frets 10 and 12 be so small that you can’t move?
I built a sopranino-sized cigar box ukulele. It is quite cute and has a pretty good sound for being so small. I am changing strings after changing the tuners on it, but here’s a pic at the moment.
