A chilly New England Fall day. Leaves scuttle across the sidewalk making that distinctive insect-like sound. Lunch time finds me answering the door to none other than Robert Wheeler and Greg Hawkes. Robert has brought his newly acquired Martin 5 “Daisy” Soprano Ukulele in figured mahogany for us to see, and Greg has brought his 5K to compare it with.
No surprise; they both sound and play great. Much better than I expected. Martin quality has not dropped one iota over the years. Greg had Worth strings on his and Robert had the standard issue Martins. They both sounded good, but I would go with the Worths, if I had my druthers. (what the hell are “druthers” anyway?)
