Elderly Instruments in Michigan have these instruments according to the latest notification. I would be interested in the opinions, if any, from other family members here on the forum. They are crafted in Bulgaria and there are two models available. A coco and a mahagony, both solid woods. Jim.
PS: There does not seem to be any information when one goes checking on the forum.

Bazmaz did a full review of one of the tenors a few years back, gave it a very high score:

I owned one and enjoyed it very much till I stepped up to a custom made tenor ukulele. I don't know what they go for now when I bought mine it was listed for $650 and I got it for $450 on sale at Amazon. Nice sound and well built.

I just checked Amazon.ca and the new prices are $2434.67 for the Mari and $2889.58 for the Coco. These prices are in Canadian dollars. I think further investigations are called for. Thank you Ukulelerick9255.
PS: I just checked Elderly in Lansing, Michigan and the Mari tenor is in stock for $499 US dollars.

Amazon.ca prices are ridiculous. Here's the price on Amazon.com:

Jim.......I believe a road trip down to Elderly to check out the Kremona is in order. It would be a fun way to spend the day, that's for sure

The one I had was cedar top and Indian rosewood I never played or heard the Mari mahogany version but for $100 more the Coco has nicer appointments, the Mari doesn't even have a rosette, up to you.

I can't comment on the tenor but have a Mari Soprano and love it. Good sturdy build and a real punchy sound.

Yes, I thought it was excellent. Played some others since and they were equally nice.

I can happily say it isn't! They are both very good and value for money! Of all the ukes I own the kremona has given me No trouble.. No buzzing ( re strung a few times with different strings) action very good..comfortable to.play..some reviewer said they didn't compare with top notch ukuleles? If one was to YouTube kremona ukuleles.. One would see some very fine players using these ukes? They are not using the 'k' brands..they are playing kremonas..guess the proof of the pudding is in the eating? Not the reviewing! I would recommend kremona..
