I don't have the equipment to give you a sound or video clip, sorry. I will say for a small uke, it doesn't have a small sound. And surpisingly, it has a rather mellow quality.

Congrats on the sale. You must make some really great ukes because they always sale from what I've seen here on UU. That's definitely something to be proud of.
