    Default Aaron Keim is now taking orders for Beansprout ukuleles.

    The email announcement arrived about four hours ago.

    https://www.thebeansprout.com/instrument-models/

    He offers three sizes: alto (larger than a soprano, smaller than a concert), tenor, and baritone.

    As many know, but some may not, with the retirement of Gordon and Char Mayer from building Mya-Moe ukuleles, Aaron (who has worked with them for eight years) will now be building ukuleles under his own Beansprout name.

    Interesting neck material. I would have never thought of Douglas Fir, but it has Pistachio (reinforcement?) so it should be solid. Pistachio janka is greater than koa and about the same as rosewood. Looks great too.
