Just finished this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMAOltDswwo): it's a good 25g lighter than my usual koa instruments and has the most wondeful tone.

Glad to see you are feeling a lot better, Pete, but you still look and sound a little "peaky". Don't overdo things.

Ken's uke looks and sounds great. I'm sure he'll be delighted with it.

Ukantor.

The Helsinki cutaway sounded so good with a low G, but the Helium is crystal clear and fresh. I think no matter whether you use it with a low or a high G string setup, results speak for themselves on a Howlett uke. I bet Ken has already phoned you. Thanks for the clip Pete, and congratulations to Ken Middleton.
