Title: Ukes on parade
Post by: Walkerman on January 08, 2015, 05:15:25 PM
I was at Yarnell Place last week.  I saw 4 sizes of Larrivee ukes being made...up to and including baritone.

So ... soprano, concert, tenor and baritone? Is "concert" is an actual size? Anyway, I would love a Larrivée tenor ukulele in a plain Jane 01 style with a good pickup. See anything like that?

Yes, I did.  I suspect they might show up at NAMM.  Jean told me he is going to Hawaii soon.  I suspect it is a koa trip.

Walkerman, do you know the going price for these ukes?

 No, I do not.  However, there will be different woods used, so I am sure there will be a range of prices.

It would be incredible if they would start making them on regular basis.

I've own and played a lot of the highend brands but not the Lav. They look outstanding but I would love to compare to the Big K's from Hawaii, Martin and Collings.
I wish there is some way I could get a hold of one.

My Kamaka tenor is unreal, it will have to take something special other than looks to convince me otherwise.

Has anyone done a comparison?
