Thread: Sound Port on Enya EUT-X1 Tenor

  1. #1

    Default Sound Port on Enya EUT-X1 Tenor

    Just in case anyone was wondering if it was possible. It is. Much louder sound to the player. Still solid as ever. I think it sounds amazing. Cheers!

    Cool! Sharing how you did it would be much appreciated.

    Does more volume to the player mean less volume out front? (not that there's often anyone out front, in my case )

    Very nice. I've thought about doing that to one of my cheap ones.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    I certainly would not cut any large holes in any musical instrument.

    I had an Enya EUT X1, it was badly made with a warped and bent neck, it was returned, heaven knows what the long term effect will be of cutting a large home in one

    I ordered a Fluke with that extra hole, mainly because it was offered. I get comments on it occasionally.

    I copied what Griffin Ukuleles did. I Found a page on their website called Side Sound Ports Are Cool. Pretty much explains how to do it.

    I put a side sound port in my Stew Mac tenor build. It really does make a huge difference to my ears. I bought a Cocobolo sound port reinforcing ring from Brian Griffin. It was a bit of a pain to install properly, but it looks great.

    Did you get the walnut ply top,back and sides kit? I’ve been looking at those. Was it hard to build?

    Curious zjerry, did the sound port make a iffference on your Fluke. I have a four year old all laminate Walnut. It’s gotten better sounding as the laminate dried out and got older. I saw the sound hole option. Do you like it on this ukulele?
