    I'm going to make some concert size Ukes

    Hey, I just now saw your post. I am that Guy from Germany and I am still happy with the uke. Especially, ever since I tuned it down to Bb. Delightful! Here's a little song I recorded last December for our annual Christmas greetings (in standard C tuning): -->Click!<-- 😇

    NUD: Custom Laulu Ukulele soprano

    As planned, I already sold one of the centennial Martins (which by the way ended up in re-investing in a Martin Baritone :D ). Anyway, I really hope to pick the Laulu soprano up in person; whenever it's ready and whenever that'll be possible again. I actually sent him the koa myself since I...

    What's your favorite? (sound comparison)

    So, here's the reveal: I went with #2. (on the right) :cool: As mentioned, they're pretty close but #2 just seemed a bit more "clear sounding" to me, especially at its sweet spot around the 12th fret. Ms Bean mentioned, #2 might be better for "soloing". Well, THAT's me - sitting with his...

    What's your favorite? (sound comparison)

    A few weeks ago I bought two Martin Centennial sopranos. Today I let one go. Before I put it in its case to leave for its final destination, I recorded a sound demo of both instruments. I think, they're quite similar. Anyway, I did have a definite favorite. #1...

    I bought a vintage Vita soprano made by Pete Howlett and actually, if UAS doesn't strike again earlier, another one of these, newly made at the end of the year, might be my next purchase. Well, now that I think about it. Does wood count? :D I recently bought this set of koa. No idea yet who's...
