    Default Upcoming release of Enya Carbon Ukulele

    Is anyone else anticipating the release of this ukulele?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmHF7zxCXGI

    Its the new Enya Music Nova U Carbon Fiber Ukulele in several colours.
    I believe its release is mid August and it is a concert size.

    Let me know your thoughts about Enya Music USA and this newbie ukulele please.

    Thanks!

    We really liked the Enya Ukuleles we bought, except for the strings, which were utter horrible. That is a minor quibble solved by a $5 new set.

    Of course every single one we bought, probly 6 in all, were at give away prices on Amazon.

    It always depends on price.

    I had a Kaka ukulele which is made by Enya. It is production line but it was well made, thoughtfully designed, and had great tone for a laminate. It's the one in my profile picture. I sold it to a friend because the neck was too wide for me and the herd got too big. They have kept the shity name so I'm sure they have a big market in Asia. I think they offer a good value. But I imagine as times change so do their methods. I like the look of the new model. I think you're going to go for it :-)

    Sounds promising. I have no experience of this line.
    I stick with Kala but loved the look of these new ones, especially the colours.
    I msg them about release date and price. Mid August.
    Thanks for your feedback!

    Yep I saw that as well but the company replied to me saying mid August.
    It is a concert however and I am used to a tenor. I guess I could get used to it , especially if it’s the orange one!
    Chloe Hennessy has a video playing it. Sounds good.

    Possibly! I’ll wait for reviews and hopefully a demo. Pricing comes into it as shipping to Australia could be interesting!
    It’s a concert and I’m used to Tenors but as you pointed out the neck was too wide for you so maybe this will be perfect.
    We wait!

    I thought "Kaka" was a typo but is an actual attempt at creating another K brand...

    Is it really carbon fibre, they call their flourocarbon strings carbon fibre, Im not sure why you would cover a carbon weave with paint? Perhaps there has been some loss in translation, it may be a plastic uke, time and price will tell I'm sure.
