View Full Version : What about the Bushman Jenny?

06-12-2008, 07:01 AM
I have seen some positive reviews for the Bushman Jenny Concert UKE. Anyone have any thoughts or reviews of this UKE or the brand in general?

Welcome aboard 904!

I don't have any personal experience with this maker or the Jenny, though most of what I have read has been positive.

Be sure to check out our reviews section (click here (http://ukuleleunderground.com/ukereviews/viewModels?manID=8)) as I believe we have reviews for at least 2 models there, and certainly more to come.

Have fun!

I have a Bushman Jenny Concert and it's a great instrument! For the price it would be hard to beat. It has a beautiful tone, and the intonation is perfect! My husband plays a Jenny Tenor, and he really loves it.

If you want to hear the Bushman Jenny, this is a short clip I did when I was trying to learn how to use iMovie:

The Bushman jenny concert is a great uke for the money and it's guarenteed,so if you don't like,you can send it back.

Looks like I am on the right track for my first UKE!

I was lucky enough to play the very first ever Jenny. I was really impressed. Julia Nunes plays a Jenny. You can hear what they sound like on her channel.

I think Julia Nunes actually plays a Cedar Tone, not a Jenny. someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Ooh, maybe you're right. I'm not sure.

(I only know that because I was thinking about buying a Cedar Tone and when I googled them it took me to her Wikipedia page - there is precious little information on Bushman Ukes on the web.)

In the description of this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZpe-E3VRHY), she says its a Jenny concert. It is possible that she is mistaken, or is playing a newer model, but I am thinking that Wikipedia is wrong (blasphemy, I know).

and now, Julia Nunes..... in my dreams

I`m the proud owner of a concert Bushman Engelmann. It plays great! it's the only ukulele I own and I`ve had it for some 4 years now. Bushman is a fantastic brand in my eyes.

I'm considering my next uke and was convinced by another player in my area to give a serious look at the Bushman tenor. He says he plays his most of all his 45 ukuleles(!).

How does it stack up against, day, a Pono or a Kelii? Any positives or negatives to weigh? Tone sounds like...?

All ive heard of bushman ukes is thus: they play nice and they are made well. Go for it.

now the jenny is a nice uke but it is very noisy and high pitched. if thats what your going for do it. its made for that kind of sound(so i hear anyway) but I also hear that it is a great uke.

Go for it!
