    That's good to hear. I have been intrigued by The Rebel instruments. The only thing holding me back is that they don't seem to make an actual concert. They have sopranos, long-necked concerts, and...

    Well, based on the prices that HMS has up, the MSRP prices listed in the catalog/website were wrong. Street price for the current crop of mangos (09 July 2020):

    Based on their post on Twitter and Instagram, I think the mango is on it's way!

    Is it possible that the tenor mango models are more expensive because it is difficult to get mango big enough to make those soundboards? This is pure speculation on my part. An error in pricing seems...

    Is this a lower price on the mango? The koa ones seem to be about what I recall the price was before, but I don't remember the prices on the mango.

    I did prefer the concert in the blind test, but by the narrowest of margins. I suspect that if I had listened on a different day, the long neck would have won my favor.

    What Uke Would You Choose to Buy Again?

    Many of us have many instruments. Some might even argue that some of us (I'm looking at me) have too many instruments. As such, I often find myself thinking, if I could only keep one, which would it...

    That's what I figured you meant, after re-reading it, but it isn't where my mind went the first time I did.

    Yes, they would be *way* more expensive built in the US, but you are right, their...

    I think I understand what you are trying to say, but your comment could be read to imply that the Moon Bird is USA made, which it most certainly is not. They are built in China for a company based in...

    Don't know about all of their models, but my UC200 concert Moonbird is labelled "Handmade in China." I will also add that it is exquisitely built at that.

    Magic Fluke and Bonanza may be the only USA made that are close to this price range. I have one from both of these, and I think they are certainly worth considering.

    Happy to help, in any way I can.

    My Anuenue is the UC200 concert scale Moonbird, with spruce top, rosewood back and sides.

    If you go straight to it on Elderly's site, you can see a 360 view.
