View Full Version : Bushman Jenny Concert for sale $200

This is a 2005 Bushman Jenny Uke. All solid mahogany. Very loud and very sweet.
This comes with a hard case and Freemont strings.

I do NOT want to sell this. BUt I am working up the cash for an upgraded mandolin.

I have had a member ask what the term "very sweet" meant. You can see my reply in the posts.

First of all, I play several ukes - as probably all of us do that are on this forum. So words like "sweet", "bright",
"mellow". "warm" can be very subjective.

I guess my connotation of "very sweet" is crisp,clear, well-intonated and an punchy sort of sound. This is solid mahogany. Mahogany is
known for being a "quick" soundwood. KOA is known for being warm - and, I guess, you would also call the sound of Koa sweet.

So, my fellow uke players, this ukulele - for me - has been "very sweet". I hope it is for you, too.

Very loud and very sweet? What does that mean. Is she bright? Mellow? I have a Bushman koa soprano that is pretty bright, so I am wondering about the Jenny concert.

The Jenny is LOUD. The Jenny is bright. I have Freemont strings on the Jenny right now. You can experiment with differnet strings to mellow it out - if you want.
But remember - this is SOLID mahogany - mahogany is going to be a brighter wood than KOA, for instance - which is warmer and mellow.

Thank you for your response. I am now confused because I thought mahogany was supposed to be mellower than Koa.

if you go to this website it will show the difference in woods use for acoustic manufacture. it lists the warmest to the brightest.
