    The review made me curious--but it looks like a brand that may not be sold in the US.

    Not entirely sure to be honest. I know that doesn't sound helpful, but hear me out. When I first reviewed one of theirs in 2014 I had similar comments, but then I was totally sure I remember them being available in the US. Whether it was as short term thing or not I don't know. Might be worth looking as they are really good for the price.

    But of course - I am not from the US, and neither is a large part of my readership!

    Tempting! I've got a couple of their concerts a V10 CCE & a Hotrod.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    Hello,

    I just received my V2-T8 purchased from Red Cow music in UK (great transaction, carefully packed) and I'm more than pleased with it. This is a serious instrument, well finished, the set-up is perfect and it sounds far above its price point. Early lute music and baroque guitar repertoire sound more accurately than on any regular tenor, and the chiming sound ouf the octaves is sometimes reminiscent of the portuguese guitarra, or the viola caipira... It would be a pity to play it only to get more power in strumming, because, when played fingestryle, you can get a incredible range of nuances, from lush and mellow to bright and flamenco-like...
    A must-buy for every uke-player with an open mind.
    Regards,
    Gilles

    Great to hear - I think they are staggeringly good for the money - in fact all Baton Rouge instruments seem to be.

    Hello Bazmaz,

    I forgot to thank you for giving me the inspiration ! Your in-depth reviews are always very useful, but this one was really convincing!
    Cheers,

    Gilles
