That thing totally has a twang to the sound. Very interesting to look at too.

I have one of their regular strum sticks (which is technically a mountain dulcimer); they are well made and alot of fun. The sound is definitely unique...i think it's cool that they now do an ukulele version.

I was able to try one out and was unimpressed. Not much sound out of it. It had a weird balance in the hands too. just my opinion though. For 180 bucks, get a Flea - or Ohana concert.

I was on that site a couple of weeks ago, and they didn't have the uke version then. Very interesting. Thanks for the sound clips. The first one sounds uke-like, but the second clip sounds very banjo-like. Are the strings metal?

I had a regular strumstick when they first came out. Interesting instruments; very twangy and unbalanced, but it's something different to tool around with and use to warm up your fingers.
