    Default NUD: 2019 Romero Creations Mahogany Concert C-M

    The idea of a tenor sound in a concert size intrigued me and when I watched the ukulele site video ( https://www.theukulelesite.com/shop-...-c-m-9015.html ) I knew I wanted one. It was the first HMS video review I had seen where Andrew, Corey, and Kalei all said something very positive.

    So I bought it on their review and I'm glad I did. The pictures don't do it justice. It's beautiful and has a special sound. It's close to a tenor in body size and also sounds closer to a tenor than a concert which is its total length. The HMS setup is perfect. I own both a Hawaiian made koa tenor and koa concert, and this one fits right in between - and is currently the one that makes me smile.

    Wow, congrats, that thing sounds great! Romero sure has some cool ukes, and that concert model looks like a real winner! The 3" deep body (deeper than most tenors) really seems to give this uke big volume and projection. Plus, I prefer the traditional figure-8 body to the Tiny Tenor look.

    Congrats, it looks and sounds beautiful.

    Is it comfortable to play? I had had a Cali Pineapple - big body, short neck - which for me was uncomfortable. I had looked at the Romero's and wondered if the same would be true.

    For me, it's quite comfortable. I'm tall with average size hands which was why I was interested in this concert/tenor style ukulele in the first place.

    When I was comparing it to my tenor and my concert, the differences were marked, and for me mostly for the better. Also, after playing/practicing it for a few minutes, I probably was feeling/thinking of it as a tenor until I realize my fingers are a little more cramped up the fretboard.

    Because I love the tone/sound of the Romero concert, your ST Concert is now something I'm thinking about adding to my collection. (Okay, I seem to have a mild case of UAS.) I have an Enya HPL soprano I like a lot. Before I buy another, however, I think I'll sell a Tenor I own (Ohana TK38) It's only three months old but it seems to be getting neglected by me because of another tenor and especially the new Romero Concert.
