  • Amazing Ukulele!

    As reviewed by Stan Duda on 10/7/2013

    I have a couple of ukueleles and have also bought one for my son but in no uncertain terms, this instrument is outstanding. The photo on this website does NOT do it justice at all. The color is a beautiful deep golden brown tone and the white accents with the banding and all are incredible. I was worried it would be bright cherry red because of the photo and as it turns out, I was worried for no reason. The tone of the instrument is incredibly distinct, soothing and crisp - I simply cannot say enough positive things about it. It tunes nicely and holds its tune well even over several days with minimal variance. It is a pretty comfortable ukulele to hold and strum. I have sausages for fingers and have absolutely zero issues playing this at all. If you asked me a year ago if I would ever pay this much for a ukulele, I would never have said yes but the more I played my other instrument, the more I was looking for a smoother tone and more compact and beautiful instrument. The fit and finish of the instrument is absolutely amazing - everything is tight, has great character, the fret boards look outstanding, all the components line up nicely and are tight. This is absolutely the one - I have NO regrets spending the money on this one. I do recommend picking up a Delta Lab tuner - it is discrete and works perfectly with this. You would not be disappointed owning this.

    I got this for a gift, I have no prior experience with ukulele however the woodworking is gorgeous, moderately figured cherry with lots of visual interest. To my ear there are no flaws with the tone. it seems that they make less than 40 of these a year so it could be collectible some day. I enjoy playing this. lots of uke resources on the web, maybe better than guitar resources.
