I didn't think this should go in any of the guitar forum so here goes. I want to try to learn a new stringed instrument, just to try something new. As of now I'm thinking either mandolin,banjo, or baritone ukelele. I have about 150 dollars US to buy something, anyone got any suggestions?

Ukulele's really good fun, I really recommend it.

Also, ukulele goes down so damn well at parties and stuff, so yeah.

You're too right, I got one for £25 (around $14).

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

I've played a mandolin before, they're pretty cool. and they're tuned G D A E so it's like the four deep string on the guitar but bassackwards
