Irish Bouzouki

16.06.2014
Excellent service from Thomann.

When this Bouzouki arrived I was very very pleased with the overall quality .The sound is excellent and the finish is well done .Everything about this instrument has amassed me from the gold tuners to the rose inlay centre hole which is made beautifully. The frets are good well crafted the beading around the edge is excellent .The F S E -3 band equaliser appears to do the trick and I have no complaints .It comes with a bag that is made of good quality material as is the whole instrument. I can honestly say I have not been able to fault it . If I hade to be really picky I think the action is a bit high but I am having mine adjusted, having said that I think everyone has there own preferences and this should not put you off choosing this Bouzouki.Execellent,price .Well made ,Superb .

First foray into folk

Jakey Sully, 28.04.2018
I bought this while training as an actor to use as a stage instrument for Shakespeare productions and the like. For this function it worked extremely well, although it took some time to figure out the tuning as compared to a guitar.

The sound is truly lovely, very warm and ancient, with a huge natural sustain. It can be played melodically, or as a rhythm instrument. When strummed quickly it is very jangly and happy, whereas when plucked slowly it can become a very reflective, mysterious, even medieval instrument.

My only issue was the very high action out of the box, which makes playing above the octave pretty much impossible, as the tuning goes and holding the strings down is a real effort. I'm still getting round to lowering it, which (hopefully) won't be too much of a challenge.

The instrument looks great, with a gorgeous rossette over the soundhole, which looks handmade. The gold machine heads match the coverplate at the bottom of the bridge, which really works looks-wise.

To conclude, a great investment for anybody interested in dabbling in alternative and folk instruments, I know I have a lot more to discover with this lovely bouzouki.
