    Default NUD: Cordoba Bamboo Soprano

    A couple of weeks ago, during a discussion of the Martin OX Bamboo, someone told me that there was a Cordoba bamboo uke for sale on Reverb. How could I resist? Obviously, I couldn't. Using the slowest delivery service available, it took fifteen days to travel from CA to NY. It arrived in one of those basic yellow hard cases, so for $129, I think I got a good deal.

    The is a nice little soprano, and it looks brand new. Except for the tuners and the strings, it is all bamboo, with a compound curve to the back. The sound and sustain are very nice. I don't know what kind of strings it has, but I see no reason to change them.

    Does an all bamboo ukulele like this need humidity care like other solid woods?

    That looks like a nice little uke for the money.

    Cool soprano. Love to hear what it sounds like.

    Is it light?
    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.

    I suppose anything is going to react badly to extremes of temperature and humidity, but if I can survive in my house, I bet this uke can, too.

    Since it's bamboo, I wonder if it can double as a fishing pole.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    It sounds like a ukulele. : ) No one is going to prefer the sound over a Hawaiian K, but it sounds fine to me. Bamboo is very tough, so I don't expect it to get scratched easily.
