I've been looking at banjo uke's for ages and I just found two models for a decent price...

First off is the Ozark 2035

And then I found the Tonewood Dub-2

I initially found the Ozark and thought it wasn't bad for the price, though I was a bit disappointed by the fact it was an open back. Then I found the tonewood which is a closed back so I thought great and it's about the same price. Which one is better though, from my judgement Ozark would be the more reliable brand? And what is the difference between the open back and closed back... sound wise?

I forgot to mention I'm hoping to have one of these for my birthday in May... Unless Mike at Mainland manages to get his banjo uke model out by then! That will be a whole other kettle of fish indeed and the model I buy then will be a dead cert!...
