    Punchy, mellow, just an all around beautiful sound. Probably the best sounding uke in the house, unplugged or plugged.
    It’s fitted with K&K. Not the best.
    I prefer MiSi. LR Baggs is the loudest , I just don’t care for the battery changes!

    Lovely playing. The mango sounds great. Beautiful spalting. Nice that it has a big brother to keep it company.
    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.

    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!

    That's a beauty. I like the look of spalted mango, but I no longer have one. : (
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Brenda came over to my house to show me her new “Christmas Present”. She did own a spruce mahogany TT and always regretted selling it. But she has lusted over the spalted mango a long time so her Christmas dreams came true.

    It played really nice, good balance and comfortable in the lap with a strap. I usually like a chunky neck but this shallower profile was a joy to play. Think of a Koaloha concert neck shape, medium depth and profile. It has a very sweet tone, warm but articulate. Both Brenda and I agreed it had less volume then the spruce top but sounded so wonderful there was no need to mess with strings.

    Congratulations on your gift from you to you Brenda. You MUST have been a good girl this year

    Congratulations Brenda, not only does this one look wonderful, it also sounds great (or you make it sound so)! This is some of the nicest spalted Mango I have seen, you are indeed lucky to have found such a special one.

    Took it to my music band night.... it was like walking a cute looking dog. I was surrounded with curious audiences asking me what kind of instrument is this. I was the popular woman that night.

    Hey Old 'n Slow, you are worthy! The time is now! Especially in light of Brenda's concept of getting "a Christmas present for myself"-- I must say I really like that concept! And Brenda, that's a beautiful instrument and beautiful playing!
