    Default Duke Ukulele Co DUBVB Bartitone - Ukulele

    I like it when a store develops their own brand, and this one from the famous Duke Of Uke in London didn't let me down!

    Any upside to the way they tie the bridge? With the strings up it seems they could poke the arm/wrist depending on playing style. Seen a few import models do this, perhaps just a setup mistake and of course easily fixed, yet has me curious.

    Thanks again for a great review. Happy new year to you!

    Just a standard tie bar bridge isn't it? I don't see anything unusual with it?

    Thanks for this review Baz!

    These look and sound great and the price is easy for lots of people. Seems like a good value.

    How was that whiskey? LOL...

    Not with the bridge but the way they tie it, you even mentioned in a previous review on another brand that tied the let the loose strings point upward instead of down.
    Tiny detail.

    no matter I guess, was as I said "curious" since you see far more ukes than I do.
