Hi guys

So i recently decided to temporarily cure myself of my UAS, and bought a new soprano. It's a Baton Rouge U9-S with solid spruce top and sides and back of spalted maple. Baton Rouge is a rather unknown german brand, and the uke is made in China. I suspect that it might be produced in the same factories as Kala and similar brands.

I think it looks very nice, and with a bit of abalone bling. THe bookmatching on the back is slightly off, but you can't get everything for 128 $ :).

I'll post a sound sample in a couple of days, when i have gotten used to the D-tuning :).

Being down the road from Baton Rouge (Louisiana), this caught my attention. Baton Rouge Ukuleles got some favorable reviews on this site (written reviews in English - video narratives in German):
