    Still looking for a harp uke? I have a Jay Buckey. Quite lovely, but it has a sweet muted sound. Nevertheless, very fine instrument.

    Have enjoyed the uke harp I bought from Jay (actually from a friend of his). But I have discovered the six-string ukelele/guitalele/guitarlele and will be seeling the uke harp. I haven't had any buzzing problems. it is a well made instrument. the tone is sweet and soft - my style is brighter - but he did put in a pick up which gives it fullness.

    Emerald Synergy Uke vs Jay Buckey harp ukulele

    I am a folk harper, harps with levers, and have found a harp ukulele perfect picking out a melody with harmony and no overbearing resonance and weights at least 10 pounds less than my bulky harps.

    RE: Jay Buckey - Do not send this maker any money! I ordered a harp ukulele in Feb. 2018, put a deposit on it through his PayPal invoice and nothing yet - it is now Nov. 2019. I told him last month to cancel my order and return my deposit several times now. No reply. PayPal will not cooperate by returning my money as it is older than 180 day. I have read elsewhere in the guitar forums that someone had the same experience back in 2012. Wish I had seen that before I ordered.

    I have an older model of a Jay Buckey harp ukulele (6 harp strings), purchased used through Elderly. It is ok. Not crazy about the tuning pegs or the maple wood - so not the greatest for performing. That's why I wanted the new model he was supposedly making.

    I now possess a 100% carbon fiber harp uke from Emerald Guitars, came in one week and love it. The tuners, fretboard, sound and feel are superior to the J.B. and I donít have to worry about climate effects like I do with a wood instrument. I have had to adapt to just 4 harp strings, they will custom to have more but it is not worth the extra $$$ to me for now.
