    Congratulations. I am always in awe of the design of the Barron River instruments. His designs are lovely with great attention to detail.

    Thanks people! I very curious as to how this instrument will sound. I know the tone and playability will be great going on those factors with my Barron River 8 string. But I have never owned a Maple bodied instrument nor one with a Cedar soundboard (especially an Alaskan Yellow Cedar one).

    This wonderfully crafted instrument arrived today. As I’m really busy packing up to move house, I only played for an hour or so. Very pleased with the result. It was interesting to discover that the BR 8 string and this new Tenor have an amazingly similar feel under the fingers. It plays like butter, intonation is spot on past the 12th fret and a wonderful unique tone. As I’ve said before it’s my first maple and cedar instrument of any type so warmer than my Spruce and Ebony or Cocobolo Hoffman builds but brighter that my BH, Collings and BR 8 string. At least that’s my first impression. She’ll have her public debut this Saturday on World Singing Day During my regular gig at the local farmers market.

    Congrats, Hollis! Good luck with the move and hopefully you'll soon have plenty of time with your new spectacular uke!

    Thanks everyone. Yes, all Barron River Ukes are gorgeous but this one looks so strange to me. It a shock to my eyes to hold and play such a light coloured instrument. Allen sure picked out a good wood set though. I’ve stared at it as much as played it.
    One thing I didn’t mention was how comfortable it is for me to play with its 40mm nut width. My fingers feel very relaxed when playing. All future commissions will have a 40mm nut for sure.
