Who here has thought about getting the Peanut?
I'm in the process of aquiring the funds to pull the trigger on one.
I've been fortunate enough to see pics of the lil bugger. And I must say. It's an adorable little uke.
Just gotta wait a couple of days to get the funds needed. And then it's the waiting for it to arrive..

:shaka::shaka:

The only pictures I've seen have been of the prototype, before they were going to make a few changes. Have they finalized the design now?

I'm interested and like Chap, haven't seen anything other than the prototype.

It's a handy lil thing. But I'm growing so farkin impatient.
I want my new uke to arrive so I can fiddle around with it..
I want to open the box and look inside. I want to feel the uke in my hands. Look at the wood.
But first and foremost. I want to PLAY the Peanut.
UAS.. Yea.. Pretty sure I got it.. :D

Oo where did you order from? I couldn't find anyone selling it yet.

And I see you use a Microcube.
It's an amp that seems to define physics. I can swear it sounds as loud or sometimes louder than a lot of 10W or even some 20W amps.....

Chesbro Music Co. I got a friendly message from Their marketing director on FB when I asked about the Peanut and it's availability. I had some back and forth communication got some pics of the lil uke and the bag. Decided I needed one. Got a price and sent the money through paypal.

And yes the Microcube defies physics.. It's 2 VERY LOUD watts.. :D

I didn't think they were out yet - is it a prototype they're sending you?

I shouldn't think so.. It arrived a few hours ago.. I'm going to post a review in a few hours time.. Just got to play around with it for a little while first..

Very interested in the review, was it $99 like they said it would be?

Paid 90 USD but SRP is 99 USD. Got a deal from chesbro..
First impressions very good..
Soprano scale. Sealed geared tuners. Tuners not the best ones I've come across. But mine's an early production run. So it'll more than likely be rectified. Strings seems like some black GHS nylons. So so..
Fretboard very good,13 frets, no fretwire sticking out. Nothing sticking. All ends finished greatly..
Plastic nut and saddle.
Action just right.
Intonation as good as it gets for a 100 USD instrument..
Mahogany body and neck.
Rosewood bridge and fretboard..
No fretboard markers.
MP3,headphone and instrument jack.
Fretboard was slightly dry.
Intonation should be spot on as soon as I stick some Aquila's on the lil bugger..

Hope these first impressions tickle your fancy..

Mahalo bruddas and sistas..

Looks very cool! The bag is a little 'metro' for my tastes though! ;)

Any more thoughts on it now you've had it a bit longer?
There's very little info on the net about these at the moment - anyone know when they go live?

The ones on YouTube appear to be Acoustic, while the one pictured in post #16 appears to be electric.

Any explanations?

Thanks,

Keep uke'in',

Philip (the man in the video and manufacturer of Eleuke and Bugsgear) is experimenting with different prototypes :) The solid body will be hitting the states this year. I believe the acoustic is still in very early R&D stages.

Where can I buy the Eleuke peanut?
You will be able to purchase it from any of our dealers found on EleukeUSA.com, then click "where to buy" once it arrives on the slow boat.

Not to plug myself... but if you guys are interested in one, let me know. I will be getting some in and I am wondering if I should up my back-orders to keep up with supply/demand.

I think you need one to do a Rocked Out Rubber Ducky for re-mix contest #2! A Rocked Out Rubber Ducky on a Peanut!!!
