NAMM 2019: Best or Show
Ukuleles were mentioned a couple of times at this morning’s Best of Show breakfast at NAMM 2019. Most of those mentions came from DeDe Heidi, owner of Hide music in Appleton Wisconsin, which is also where Katie Denure (One Music School on YouTube) works as a music teacher.
The item that was mentioned as a “must carry” was the Lanikai Bocote thin acoustic/electric model–which has a wide nut width and an arched back. I’ll get a chance to play one of these today, and my own local dealer has started carrying Lanikai again.
Also mentioned was Hal Leonard as carrying Flight Ukuleles (!) and Levy’s ukulele steals made out of cork (Levy’s was recently purchased by Gator cases).
