    I own a mango concert size with a koa inlay around the sound hole, its a beautiful looking uke, however, this is not a loud instrument with its current strings (Aquila, I think) I watched a video on you tube from the UK and he recommended changing the strings to Savarez, I bought the strings but I havent changed them yet, I hope they will give more sustain and sound, enjoy your new uke Pix.fairydust

    Thank you :-) I've currently got worth strings on mine but may swap to living water.
    Mango is a beautiful wood choice
