A very nice travel instrument

Bosik, 24.11.2018
The instrument overall has a very good sound for its compact size. The solid top cedar combined with spalted maple provides a very clear sound. The neck is wide enough (48-50 mm is ok for my hands), but the frets are located a little bit dense. The frets were a little bit sharp, but maybe it's because the intrument was overdried during delivery. Also I found some little scratches on the instrument, but what can we expect as it is crafted in China.
The Aquila strings that come with the instrument aren't good, better order some of Hannabachs. I bought the ones that are suitable to tune it from E to E as I didn't wanted to have ukulele-style tuning.
The best one among the Cordoba Minis, but I'm going to try the Mini II EB-CE, this can be even better.

More than a small jewelery

Body, bridge and fingerboard with cuddles seem to me to be very clean and not cheap processed. Mechanics ensure good tunability. The nylon strings are attached to the bridge with a button. I do not like it. A small piece of jewelry.
After a short introduction you play like on a "big". The fingerboard is just the right compromise between? Mini? And playable well. (The fingerboard of the "Guilele" was too small for me at the time of testing.) It is only in the high positions (about 9th fret) that chords become too tight for chords, but the octave in the 14th position still sounds nice . No snarling (hopefully this remains so).
Sounds not so much to ukulele (which one can find good or bad), the sister model Cordoba Mini O-CE perhaps rather. Nevertheless, classic or Spanish songs are not only a fourth higher (ADGCEA mood), but they have their own character. Only the (Melodie) game in higher layers becomes somewhat thin. There are hardly any vibratos. Striking chords (with or without a plectrum) gives an original sound.
Connected to an acoustics amplifier and with a shot Hall you get a surprisingly full, voluminous tone, so that you can also have large rooms with the characteristic sound of the? Can be filled. (Hopefully the pickup will last longer than my large Cordoba.)
The bass strings are already a bit worn after a week. The strings specially available for the Cordoba Mini are not exactly cheap. I hope the button (ball-end) system works with the nylon strings easily! A practical bag is included and does not have to be bought separately.
A sound wonder can not be expected with this size. Nevertheless, the mini is not just a toy, but a prima, high-quality instrument. More than a small piece of jewelry.
