Finished your Christmas shopping yet? No? Haven't even started, huh? Same here. And I bet you're in a panic, too :) Ah, the holidays...
That being said, allow Bigfoot Music to attempt to alleviate some of your Yuletide panic by making our ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS GIFT SUGGESTION...funny enough, ukuleles may be the number one gift to get this year. For anyone and everyone! Why? Because I said so :)
Though, in all serious, it isn't just my word that you can take (although, it helps: here's an article I did last year about why ukuleles are so awesome), but the fact that we probably sell more ukuleles than guitars and basses combined here at the shop, and have been so doing for a few years now, speaks for itself. Musicians of all stripes, whether long term professionals or aspiring dreamers have aboslutely fallen in love with these small pieces of musical radness (radness? That's what the kids are saying these days, right? Radness...?) and we've found that they make some of the best Christmas gifts for just about everyone. Here's some of our Ukulele Holiday Deals...
Makala Dolphin & Shark Ukes ($46.99):
These little doozies have been flying off the shelves pretty consistently for the last few years now. And NOT just during Christmas time, but all year round. A great example of excellent entry-level quality ukes at bargain prices, these guys were made to be gifted to loved ones looking to get started playing! The Makala Ukuleles come in a variety of festive anf fun colors as well as your choice of a dolphin or shark shaped bridge for added frivolity. I can personally attest to the satisfaction of at least two people in my life whom I gave these to and have absolutely hit the ceiling with excitement over. Not literally, but y'know...they were pretty jazzed. These guys are sure to put a smile on the face of that player in your life looking for some portable, affordable, and down-right user-friendly fun.
But say you're looking for something a little more...sophisticated?
Kala Ukuleles (Starting at $57.99):
Name a size from soprano to baritone, a finish from gloss to satin, or a flavor from ebony to maple to mahogany, we've got ukes coming out our ears! We've been sure to keep well stocked on a large variety of great sounding and playing instruments since they go fast this time of year! If you're looking to start playing something great or if you've been a player for a good long while and are looking for a fun new toy to add to your instrument arsenal, Kala Ukes make great gifts, to others or...yourself :) Come by the shop before Christmas to check out our selection of Kala and Fender brand ukes!
Stay excellent and Mele Kalikimaka!
