All things being equal - wood, manufacturer, etc ... but one uke is a standard shaped soprano while the other is a pineapple shaped soprano, how should the pineapple sound different?
Sound?
Tone?
Loudness?
I understand these qualities change between specific models, I'm just interested in generalizations.

Here's a decent comparison video of the Kamoa ukuleles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ORPxR0t7Pc

I was expecting the pineapple to be louder, but didn't really get that from the video.
The standard shape seemed to have a better tone as well.

Sound is very subjective but in my experience a pineapple has more square inches of resonating sound board so a soprano pineapple sound more like a concert.
