Hello. I had sent you a message yesterday but it looks like you may not have gotten it. I would like to buy your Pono. I live in Las Cruces NM.
You can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you.
Yes! I love Brükos. I only have one concert model and it is a jumbo model - tenor body with a concert neck. Unbelievable sound. Deep, rich, resonant. The combination of Spruce and Mahogany is perfect. I have it strung with Worth Brown Low Gs. Can't make any other recommendations about the concerts, but I do have 2 longneck sopranos and they play very much like a concert uke. My next Brüko will be the #9 Tenor. And then maybe one other tenor special model after that. And then maybe an all mahogany soprano......and so it goes. ;-)
When I first started to play the ukulele, I thought the concert would be my choice. But I love the challenge and sound of the soprano, especially for picking, and I think longnecks sound very good with Low Gs. I will only buy a tenor, because it sounds very different from a soprano, not because I think it is better, or a step up.
Let me know if you decide to buy a concert. I would love to know what you think.
