    Default Ukulele with circle of fifths carved on front around sound hole?

    I saw an ad (maybe on facebook?) awhile back for a ukulele that was advertised as being designed to help one learn how to play. It had the notes carved onto the fretboard, and a circle of fifths carved onto the front around the sound hole.

    Do any of you know who makes this instrument?

    If you've played one, what did you think of it?

    Tyde Music. Just saw them at the LA Ukulele Festival. Nice gentleman. His full customs are a true work of art.
    Playing ukulele since January 2016.

    Have you participated in the thread, "How the Ukulele Found You?" If not, please consider adding your story--they are just fun to read.

    Saw them at the festival too. On the side are common chords. They looked really nice.

    Love the design esthetic, and the fact that Tyde uses reclaimed wood from the furniture business.

    The percussion shakers are so cute. They even have one with the same "learner" features as the learner ukulele model, including the circle of fifths. Great gift idea!

    I have to admit that when I saw the title of this thread, my gut reaction was rather negative.

    But this Uke is actually pretty darn nifty. Thanks for sharing!

    This is not even close to the same, but I taped a chord chart on the back of my baritone. I also write phone numbers in my arm.

    I don't often get impressed by the look of instruments, but WOW. That's some nice stuff. The monster bevels are insane! Wonder how they affect the weight/sound?
