    I have no clue how this uke from a complete unknown brand sounds, but it has some cool looks for a low price:

    I have both 6 & 8 string Baton Rouge. Love them both and they're fantastic value. I used the 6 string for both my songs this week. They're around £110 which is what I paid for both mine. Southern Ukulele Store had one at £107 the other day

    I wish we could get Baton Rouge over here without having to pay as much for shipping as you do for the instrument.

    Hey Geoff - I'm seriously tempted to get one of these - which would you say has the 'fuller' sound, the 6 or the 8?

    Hi Del, I know you weren’t asking me , but...about 6 or 7 of the members at our uke group play the 8 strings. I’ve even “borrowed” one from them occasionally. They really are excellent instruments for the money. Sound great, play great. I’ve not heard the 6 string much, and, personally, I would go straight for the 8 string anyway.

    All contributions gratefully received, John! Cheers for this - I’m sorely tempted! Also now seen this Freshman 8 string with electric pickup on Amazon for a relatively reasonable £179: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07HYW9L..._8qcgEb2WRFMA2
    Thoughts anyone please?

    I have both a 6- and an 8-string (in the case of the 8-string, both a tenor and a baritone) ... and, I must admit, I very rarely play any of them. To me, the way that the 6-strings are arranged can sound rather weird, although it's quite effective if you are playing something in a minor key. If you were to make a choice, I, personally, would recommend an 8-string. (P.S. Are you asking for contributions towards this purchase, Del, because at the moment, immediately after Christmas, I find myself a little out of pocket!)

    Thank you so much for your thoughts here Val - and I meant contributions to the discussion rather than my 'new uke fund' - though I'm happy to accept both!!!

    I think that looks real good. Plus you can plug it in, which you can’t with the Baton Rouge ( well not on the ones I’ve seen). For £179 squid it’s worth a punt I reckon.
