    Default NUD : Christmas present to myself TT Mango

    Christmas present to myself arrived early. This is a Tiny Tenor Mango uke created by Daniel Ho !
    Since I own a Daniel Ho 6 Strings guitar , why not collect a mango off his fruit tree too.
    This instrument is fitted with a K&k pick up which is surprisingly good!
    Very shinny and easy to play.
    I am not good at writing long review.....Here is a classical piece I recorded last week. Let’s you be the judge. PS : Downupdave .... this is for you!



    Photos of the two brothers plus photo of the uke tree in Daniel Ho’s backyard attached

    Beautiful instrument, and lovely performance! Congrats! I have the Mahogany Tiny Tenor in my collection, and play it often. Many years of happy strumming to you!

    P.S. When I play it, my left hand bumps up against the lower tuning pegs on certain chords. Do you have that happen? No big deal, but something different.

    Great looking and sounding Mango tenor. Where did you find it? Only mango TT I seem to see are on Instagram. LOL. The mango shown at on line dealers either don’t look that good or the second they are put on line they seem to be gone. You are very fortunate. Enjoy and congrats!

    Beautiful uke, and great playing Brenda! Your thumb covers a lot of ground very accurately! I'd love to learn that one, if you have a source for the TAB, let me know.

    Congrats, Brenda!
    Aren't the TTs lovely?
    Nice tune, too.
    I just had a pickup put in my wife's TT, she played it onstage first time tonight, very cool.
    She plays a mahogany one with Worth Brown strings....

    I had a TT spruce top about two years ago . My left hand bumped up against the top as well but I don’t have that issue with the mango. Perhaps RC corrected the problem since then. Thank you for watching

    Mango wood has a very unique patterns. Each one is different! HMS carries it but you need to act quick. They seem to be very popular. Not too many on the resales market so owners must be pleased.

    I heard the mahogany got a very warm sound. I sold my first TT ( spruce top ) couple of years ago but regret selling ever since. It is very comfortable to hold.

    I just did a solo performance tonight using the mango plugged to my little Yamaha AMP. The result was OK, may be the room was too big. I ended up using a mic instead.

    What pickup do you have?
    Tammy's uses a LR Baggs 5.0.
    Punchy, mellow, just an all around beautiful sound. Probably the best sounding uke in the house, unplugged or plugged.
