I love the sound of this ukulele. What ukulele is this. Is the sound of the uke augmented somehow?

Sounds like he has added some echo, but that is about it. Just good playin'

He's always good. The uke looks like a Lanikai to me.

Yes, it's a Lanikai Spalted Mango (I think it was mango... I am not sure. Wood is wood!)
No echo but reverb (I don't think I have a video online without).
To answer hapuna's extra question from the PM: No, the uke is not amplified. I recorded both the ukulele and my vocals with the same mic (Zoom H2).
This also means that all effects (reverb and EQ) apply to both uke and vocals since they are not separated.
This goes for nearly all of my overdub videos, if the uke or the voice is too loud there is nothing I an do to change that.

I also did some overdubs to that video btw:

Not easy to play the drums to this because I did not play against a metronome or anything when I recorded the uke and voice...
