    Default Sound Smith Ukuleles Anyone???

    Wondering if anyone has tried Sound Smith ukuleles from Oregon? I was wondering about the sound /quality. Especially interested in their Jazz uke.

    I like their resonator tenor. It's all laminate. And sounds pretty good for its price. Their tenor banjolele was OK sounding. Both played well.

    I'm not familiar with their Jazz uke.

    Shannon is terrific to work with. She'll answer your questions and loves feedback. Great outfit.

    Looked for their jazz uke, didn't see one. Do you have a photo?

    I reviewed their resonator - not at all bad and I preferred it to the Kala version which is extremely similar to look at.

    Hopefully have another couple of models from them coming later in the year.

    Thanks, I have already seen these links. I am trying to find someone that has actually played them besides the resonator. Just one of their regular ukes. Especially looking for info about sound n the jazz uke which can be seen on you tube with Shannon playing Blackbird by the Beatles. Thanks.

    This one popped up on my computer screen, billed as an all solid koa tenor, for $367.00 shipped, with 30 day money back guarantee (minus shipping). Of course, they don't specify Hawaiian koa, so I assume it may be something else, at that price?

    They have a soundclip on their webpage: https://www.soundsmithgear.com/colle...29519754887212

    They also offer solid cedar/koa concert and tenor ukes.

    It isn't obvious looking at the website, but, it must be that the ukuleles are made in Asia.

    Made in China and set up in Oregon I believe. I’ve been tempted on the all metal concert one, but don’t know enough about the brand.

    Drop her an email, or give her a call. She was very responsive to my questions and comments about the resonator and banjo uke. Both before and after the sale.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.
