Finally decided to buy one of these babies after trying one which a friend had purchased elsewhere before I introduced them to the Thomann website and their fabulous pricing structure. I made my order and was eagerly awaiting delivery which occurred to the UK within 3 days!!!!!......WOW!!!! The Uke arrived well packed with good protection for the Chanel crossing. On opening the package I was amazed just how light in weight this Uke is and being honest was not prepared for the lovely tone and volume this instrument produced after tuning. The strings settled in rather quickly and hold their tuning really well. Next moving onto the action which I have to give 9/10 for. This instrument had been set up perfectly in the factory. The strings really low and no buzzing on both open and barred chords. This kind of set up I have only found on high end models and never on a budget priced entry level 8 stringed instrument. Great volume and tone produced both played with fingers and plectrum. There is nothing negative I can share in this review on the superb instrument. My advice is get yourself one. You will not be disappointed I promise before baton rouge realize what they have produced for just over 100 GBP and hype the price based on reviews.
Instantly playable straight out of the box. The action is set perfectly so that I only had to tune it and immediately the rich resonant acoustic sound of 8 strings filled the room. What a joy to hear a ukulele with this unique added harmonics. Perfect instrument for accompaniment to a singer but also you can pick out tunes with a unique timbre because the double strings on the G and C have octaves which chime clearly. I played this solely using fingerpicking at first to check its intonation and found it was fantastic. This means you can play all sorts of challenging classical, jazz and traditional folk music tunes on the higher frets. When strummed the ukulele has a beautiful deep sound. The rosewood bridge and nubone saddle and nut transfer maximum string vibration to the body. It holds tuning well. I love the sun laser etched pattern on the soundhole. For anyone who struggles with the stretch of a guitar this offers a perfect alternative and also gives a unique folk tone to songs. Please note, this ukulele does not come with a strap button fitted or a bag, but is well packaged in a box. You will need to purchase an electronic clip tuner and bag/case and strap and strap button. Excellent purchase at a competitive price.
