    One reason I don't post sound samples is that I don't want to display my mediocre playing for all the world to hear. Another reason is the low quality audio I would probably get from my equipment. I doubt that anyone would get a true impression of the sound of the uke from my sound clips.

    It's like a review of a camera that shows sample pictures. They always look good, regardless of the camera being reviewed.

    Vic Schmeltz uses an iRig Mic Studio microphone and iPhone 6 for his reviews, and that looks like a good combination. The link below might be the one he uses, not something the casual user would need.

    Oh yeah, forgot about that. I'm also using the iRig Acoustic on occasion:

    There is a more expensive/robust "stage" version but I can get pretty decent results with this one and not too much cleanup needed afterward.

    That is amazing! If I ever get to the point where I want to record myself, I'll consider one of them.

    Just curious, I have impression that somehow, sailor is an offshoot of Loprenzi ukes. Is that true?

    Also, so back and sides are always solid poplar wood, but with a thin veneer of fancy solid wood. Is that correct? That seems smart to me and the results look great

    I seem to also have impression Jupiter Uke also in Florida do similar thing. Jim, don’t you have a custom Jupiter in the works?

    Or am I all wet LOL on these impressions

    Anyways congrats on a great looking ukulele. I’d love to hear a sound sample!

    Sailor is a offshoot of Loprenzi. I believe Donna Loprinzi is the lead luthier for Sailor. AFAIK, that isn't officially company "policy" however.

    I don't know about "always" but poplar/veneer is very common on the "regular" line of Sailor right now. I know they have a "premium" line as well.

    To my knowledge, Jupiter is not doing doing the veneer thing, but you'd have to ask Jon. My custom guilele is solid sycamore.

    I have read that Loprenzi does make the Sailor Brand but only for Uke Republic. The body is solid poplar with a veneer of a fancy wood. The work on it is very good especially given its price point. It sound great!
