Nice article about the Wasser collection, one of the world's largest ukulele collections.


The collection includes ukuleles made from cigar boxes and coconut shells. There are ukes painted with tropical landscapes, ukes made by high-end guitar makers like National and Martin, and “banjo ukes,” constructed and played like a banjo. There are even a few made by Manuel Nunes, the first master ukulele maker.

The LA Times ran a semi-clueless story about ukuleles on Monday's front page. There's a few interesting tidbits in here, but it was clearly written by someone who just doesn't get it. Link Discuss
Alan Bond's Ukecat Ukulele Museum is a photo gallery of ukes and people playing ukes. Also, some kind of uke chord manual. Link Discuss
