This is a new sopranino size uke made of Sitka spruce for the top and Koa for the body. The neck is also Koa with a graphite truss rod for strength and stability. There are 12 frets to the body, 17 total. Rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Fret board position marker are Abalone diamonds with white side dots. Bindings are rosewood with multi-layered wood strips for the rosette. Bone nut and saddle. Tuners are the new Gotoh planetary geared 4:1 machines with small cream colored knobs.

I just bought a BB koa sopranino from Duane and I can't put it down. It's the most fun I've had on the ukulele in a while. I'm amazed at how good it sounds!

Price drop and this is as low as it's going to go folks. A rare little uke.

It sure looks nice but what is a Sopranino? Smaller than a soprano?

03-23-2013, 02:17 PM
Yes, it is smaller than a soprano. The playing scale on a soprano is about 13 3/4" long. A sopranino is about 11 1/2" long. It would be like playing a soprano if the nut were at the 3 fret, of course the body is also smaller making the sound more delicate and not as loud.

Thanks. I would think it would sound very nice.
