Whilst the B&M name has some heritage in musical instruments, I believe it has been resurrected to simply slap on these ukes and some other stuff. It's otherwise a generic far eastern made uke. That said, i do hear good things about them - pretty well made and sounding for a good price.

Thanks Bazmaz,
Yes, they're all mostly made in China to a price, my lovely Lanikai which looks good and sounds even better had a Made in China sticker on it, but to be honest, I couldn't care less where they're made so long as they meet my expectations for the price. It's just that that particular B & M really takes my fancy, with the exotic wood and all, it's just that I've never heard a B & M being played and was wondering what the general quality and sound was like...:)
