Someone was asking about a Brűko uke the other day so I had a look and they had a gorgeous looking Rosewood concert in their online shop. I umm-ed and ahh-ed for a few days and eventually on Friday ordered it. It came today and the appearance was even better in "the flesh". Lovely dark grained rosewood body with slightly lighter neck with a pale wood inlay. Very little decoration but excellent satin finish.

When I gave it a first strum, it just rang out for me. Even my wife was impressed with the tone :)

I've been playing it all afternoon. Definitely chuffed with it.

Oh my gosh, that is gorgeous. You're lucky I didn't see it first. :D I have an all-rosewood Pono tenor that I received from HMS last May, and I just love it - one of my favorites.

hmmmm...was there only one?.....Down UAS, down!

Well DONE, Geoff! That is a real beauty. I like the wood striations on the back and the soft satin finish. Please play it in a video soon.

Did they stain it or is that it's natural color? Either way very nice and looking forward to hearing it in a video.

It's the natural colour. I nearly bought a rosewood recorder some years ago but it was a lot more expensive than the boxwood one I eventually bought. It was that colour.

I'll definitely be using it for a seasons video. Possibly not till next week as I am hosting this week.

Sweeet! Congratulations, Geoff. I'm expecting to see some videos with it pop up in the Seasons soon (I still try to watch what videos I can, even though I rarely have time to comment or participate myself this past few months.)

That's one of the nicest looking ukes I have ever seen. A sound sample would be most appreciated.

Got it's first outing today. Our uke group did a "spot" at our monthly U3A meeting so, of course I had to play it :music:
