    Default For Sale: Toda Concert

    Grudgingly up for sale is my Toda concert Uke.

    I'd been longing to try a Toda and had a feeling I'd be playing more concert, but while I've no regrets about Toda as the quality and sound is up there with my LFDM and MB, I simply can't get my fingers happy with the concert scale, so it has to go.

    The uke has spruce top, maple sides, koa and maple back and koa pick guard. It is in perfect condition with no dings or anything. It really sings, or at least it will do in the hands of a more competent player. Sizing is the only issue, and I'm sure a Toda tenor will find it's way to me one day, when funds permit...the one in stock at HMS is pretty special!

    I'm based in the UK and I'd prefer a UK/EU sale if possible, but happy to talk shipping further afield. I'm looking to clear 1,000 which equates to around US$1,550, plus shipping. PayPal is fine, if you take the fees. I've got a couple of good UU deals I can reference, plus good deals on TGP and a perfect ebay seller rating I can refer people to.

    I'm struggling to upload photos from my phone, but please PM and I can send these via email (including the obligatory username and date photo). In the meantime I've attached the link from when I purchased it myself.

    Sorry, I should have linked to this before. Not me playing, I hasten to add!

    Selling ukes seems harder than buying. Happy to listen to reasonable offers to save this going to eBay!

    Aint it the truth. Good luck with it, Andrew. It's stunning and has a nice crisp, clean tone. Just out of curiosity, what's with the "NY" on the board?

    I had a Toda. Really great tone -- almost sounded like a lute in a way. Not sure that recording is the best representation of a Toda though. I think it sounds better

    Hang in there, Andrew. Six months ago, Toda was featured at HMS and everyone was licking their chops for one. These things come in waves...it'll come back around for this notable instrument brand.

    I've had better luck selling in the wintertime, in case you are able to hold out.

    Cheers!

    @Hippie Dribble - I actually have no idea! It came to me with it and my curiosity never overcame the language barrier in questioning it. Maybe a fan of New York, maybe a Swede celebrating their new uke....

    @Stevelele - I agree with your comment about the sound sample, but my playing and technical expertise would combine for something much worse if I tried myself!

    @coolkayaker1 - Thanks for the support! I'm lucky that I'm selling through self-discipline rather than necessity right now, so if it takes time that's no problem. Having said that, I'm keen to downsize so if this doesn't go some of the others may find themselves in the block. A harsh process but ukes need playing.
