We are sad to say, Collings has stopped producing ukuleles. 🙁
As the supply of Collings ukes dries up, leave it to your pals at Acoustic Music Works to have a few tricks up our sleeves:
(NEW) Well OK!
We read recently where there is a “Folk Boom” and a “Ukulele Revival” going on.
Well, I guess that kills it. As we like to say, once the mass media discovers something, that is usually a sign that it has already peaked and is in recession. Since we at AMW kind of live the “folk” thing every day and have been selling ukes since Hector was a pup and Tiny Tim was getting married on the Tonight Show. I guess we missed the initial memo about the new Folk Boom, the Revival, the Renaissance, and the Craze. We’re more Pete Seeger and Carter Stanley and John Renbourn here than Mumford & Son (no offense to the Mums!) but you get where we are coming from.
We tend to view Roots and Folk Music in a sacred continuum, rather than in pop-infused peaks and spurts….
Enough about that. While the five ukes per day selling craze of 2013-2014 may be over, the high end of the uke market, for discerning players, still seems strong. Collings, however, felt the need to focus on its guitar and mandolin production, particularly the tremendously popular Waterloo line.
