Life doesn't get much better than a New Ukulele Day, and I'd like to share mine with you all. Here's my new aNueNue UT200E Tenor Ukulele, it's the latest 2019 spec & is fitted with the awesome Air Air pickup system and has a new bridge design. Perfect right out of the box, the build quality is as good as I've seen, simply wonderful. It has a beautiful fast action, the intonation is spot on, the sound is amazing in either Low or high g, I even kept the original strings which aNueNue supply, they are Black Water fluorocarbon and they feel wonderful and sound great. The case is also really good quality, with 3 latches, lots of padding and the blue colour is really cool.

Beautiful ukulele & beautiful playing. Thanks.

I have a question regarding the neck on the aNueNue. Would you describe it as thick, medium, or thin? In comparison to others I've played......thick being Pono, medium being a KoAloha or Kanilea, and thin being a Loprinzi. I have heard the aNueNue described by others as thinner than Kanilea, but not as thin as Loprinzi. Would you call it a C shaped neck, as opposed to a flatter D shape???

Some mighty fine finger picking there Cam. Very nice instrument. I’m sure you’re thrilled.

Beautiful playing, and it sounds like a great ukulele. Maybe the concert version will have to go back on my "want" list. :)
Thanks for sharing your NUD.

Aloha Campbell, CONGRATS on finally receiving your new aNueNue Moon Bird UT200E!!!:cheers:

Didn't I tell you how wonderful these ukes sound? It's amazing that they are production ukes because they look and sound like a high end custom instrument with their own unique, lush, and fabulous tone. Superb playing skills again! Thank you for including your video demo!

You know that I'm a slothead guy ... and I was actually considering selling my aNueNue UT200E tenor because of the traditional headstock, but everytime I play it, it just sounds so lovely! It is in a class all it's own!!!

And how about the aNueNue Air Air Dual Pickup System??? Doesn't sound wonderful???

Yup! This is a keeper for me ... even though it doesn't have a slotted headstock!!!:shaka:

On a side note, aNueNue just came out with their more affordable model of this uke - the aNueNue UT140 Light Bird African Mahogany/Cedar slothead tenor. Baz did a review and here it is:

Sounds fantastic, Campbell! Your rock-steady tempo and apparently effortless playing is always delightful to hear and makes every instrument sound special. Even so, this does sound great and that pickup is impressive.

Looks like there will be both concert and tenor sizes. UK prices from 649 (preorder price, later 699) for the concert size. Now I have to figure out how to translate that into US currency, and also find a cure for UAS. Maybe someone will stick one in my trick or treat bag? Guess not, since they're not out yet.
