    Baz at Got A Ukulele just did a review of the Epiphone Hummingbird. It's a Dreadnaught shape. (Baz quite liked it, too.)

    I have a Moodyville Shelly D. Parks (luthier), Gypsy Jazz, in the style of Mario Macaferri, Tenor Ukulele. Walnut sides and back with a spruce top.

    The body is wider than a typical tenor, but the depth is shallower. Really nice sound, mellow walnut combined with brighter louder Sitka Spruce top. 17" scale.

    Larger in one direction and smaller in the other.

    This paddle style tenor uke I bought from Bruce Wei Arts eBay store last year for $284 shipped from Vietnam to Los Angeles has a larger bigger than standard tenors. I think it sounds very good, full.




    9 tenor cutaway ukes, 5 acoustic bass ukes, 11 solid body bass ukes, 8 mini electric bass guitars (Total: 33)

    Luciano Pavarotti comes to mind.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    A good alternative for those wanting something like a big tenor is a baritone, particularly those with a 19" scale. Put a CGEA set on it and it will likely give you the sound you like. Maybe tune to Bb will do the trick too.
