Another lovely sounding piece for those that like the classical style, thanks.

I really like that Concert Uke too and wish that more where available in that style (compact, 12 rather than 14 frets to neck).

It is an exact copy of the original Martin concert. ;-)
thanks a lot.

A classic then and I think an overlooked one. I checked the manufacture’s site but didn’t see a price and don’t speak (or read) French. The Pound is weak against the Euro at the moment making it even harder to justify buying a quality instrument when I play so poorly, but on the other hand .......

Thanks again for the videos you put up, they are an encouragement to me as I struggle to finger pick and fine examples of what a Uke can do.

I think a concert by Chevalier (Beware, one L, there is a brand Chevallier with 2 L made in China...) in walnut like mine (simple one) is around 600 euros (Mine was 440 used).
