A gorgeous sound
I usually play banjo [insert jokes or stop reading here, lol], so I'm no uke expert. I knew I wanted a tenor in low G to span styles after watching a lot of videos.
I was excited to get a uke while in Kauai I found a little shop with some really gorgeous ukes. The owner patiently played a dozen of them for me, traversing styles. Despite the selection of beautiful butterfly grain tops with delicate ornate abalone inlays etc. and great range of price points, I walked out with this 'standard' looking Uke because the quality of the tone was just on another level.
Less bright, deeper. A little velvety even, perfect for a folky or bluesy finger picking tune. I just love, love, love it. It's perfect if you want a full sound for a sing a long uke or to compliment a group of ukes with a deeper tone.
I've been playing it for a week and it's quickly becoming my favorite instrument. I can't believe how much I love this humble looking uke.
