    Congratulations Hodge, you certainly know how to pick'em, what a lovely looking & sounding instrument. I really like the attention to detail on this one.
    All the best,

    Congrats Hodge. Great looking and sounding ukulele. Really, really like the tone. I love spruce tops and this one really delivers the clear, crisp and full sound. Enjoy and thanks for posting such great pictures and sound sample!

    Nice TODA! Sounds extremely similar to the TODA tenor I used to own (rosewood with spruce top). Enjoy!

    Default New Sound Sample

    Finally put on some strings that pair exceptionally well with this TODA. Had to post a sound sample.
    BTW the strings are SouthCoast Light Medium gauge. This is an exceptional instrument. Love the bright chimey single notes, with even tone and warmth.

    Wow! This is only the second or third TODA I've heard but they've each been spectacular. This is really lovely! TODA's are so scarce, congrats on a great add to your collection!
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."

    Curious about the relative importance of tonewood vs. the luthier? See Luthiers for a Cause to learn more!

    Great review, thanks!

    Even better, you are a great player. Sounds like you do some classical

    Wow, congrats on the TODA! They are hard to come by and sound superb. Have seen and heard ( thou not in person ) around 3 TODAs so far ( Japanese sites ) and this one takes the cake!
