The ukulele craze is still going strong and here at Forsyths we have one of the finest ranges of ukuleles available anywhere in the North-West. From basic, brightly coloured ukes for £20; ideal for beginners, through intermediate instruments from £45 and all the way up to well posh, like the Martin 2K soprano for £1250.
In the middle of all this we have the fantastic Uluru range of ukuleles. Designed by the Australian guitar makers Ayres and hand-crafted from all solid timbers in Vietnam they start at £229 for the all solid mahogany Uluru I and go through the mango Manako models, the self-explanatory Koa, the shiny, figured Pukana La (pictured) and the seriously beautiful Lehua series. If you’re serious about your ukeing then one of these might be the uke for you! All Uluru ukes come with a quality padded gig bag (or hard case for the Pukana La and Lehua ukes). Our friends at Stones Music distribute these fine instruments and you should have a look at all the other lovely ukuleles and accessories they do!

The film Looking For Eric has just been released on DVD and seeing the image on the left in today’s glowing newspaper review gave us fond memories of one of our favourite customers. In the film Cantona is asked what he did when times were hard to which he replies “I learnt the trumpet”. This might appear to be just a line in a film, but Eric Cantona actually appeared in our instrument department on the day of his court case regarding his infamous “kung-fu kick” in order to buy a trumpet. Our trumpet playing MD, Dr Robin Loat, gave King Eric his very first trumpet lesson!
Unfortunately, it appears by the standard of his playing in the film, he didn’t keep up the practice after we arranged for him to receive more formal lessons. If you’re finding times hard why not follow his example and learn to play the trumpet too!
