Hey, I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on a ukulele. The Kala LE Butterfly Tenor ukulele. Here is a link:http://www.kalabrand.com/Instruments/LimitedEdition/LimitedEditionDetailsPage.html

It is the third one down. Please let me know whatever you know about this ukulele and if it is good sounding. Thank you.

Looks really nice Andre. If you're interested, you may want to contact Mim and get her opinion. I know she was very impressed by the nice note you sent her regarding your sisters uke.

Looks like you're progressing well on the uke. Keep going!

It's a laminate, if I'm not mistaken.

In that price range, you could get something like a solid top Mainland.

Heres a video of that fellow mgm from this site playing it
(Least i assume its him)
It sounds fine. Didnt blow me away. Its stupid pretty though isnt it
I wonder how much pretty you are paying for as opposed to sound quality
As said above it is a laminate. Which means it will be durable. But I agree you could
Get bigger bang for your buck with a solid mainland.

Check this one out and tell me you cant hear the difference.

Mgm is probably playing the stock aquila strings and in the other video
They are not aquilas that will make a difference but overall the mango uke sounds
Infinitely better to my ear.
