I'm interested in the difference of sound between the Honu tenors and it's "competition"(KoAloha, Kanile'a..etc). I have not been able to find any videos with a Honu tenor except one with heavy amped effects and have nothing to base off of. Personally, I like my tenors to be more warm, rich, sweet and leave the bright lively sound for my concert size and below. Would appreciate your input

:cheers:

Aldrine has been playing a Honu tenor in lessons lately. Pretty much all solid koa/mahogany tenors will have a warmer sound than spruce/maple/etc, but to different degrees. Check out this post (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showpost.php?p=106126&postcount=28) for a general idea of what to expect from each brand.

I'll check out those Aldrine videos, thanks.

Yea but for example the difference in sound between KoAloha koa tenors and Kanilea koa tenors is very distinguishable, they have their own unqiue sound

Yea I had seen what MGM said about those brands, but I was more looking for information on Honu's sound

I checked aldrines videos, he's got one playing a Honu tenor and he only plays the A string so it doesn't help. Can't believe I can't find one video on a Honu tenor(this seems to be the thing about Honu, not much information going around the net)

Honu, you gotta show off what you're selling!! Get some sound samples up on the website it'll help, I only wish I could buy a uke online just by how it looks

Still hoping someone here at UU has played some Honu tenors

It's Ok, we can help.

Take a deep breath and repeat after me:

"I don't really need another ukulele, the ukuleles I have already meet my needs and desires."

There, how does that feel?
