    Default Howlett Revelator - Deacon

    Following a thread here about radiused fingerboards (I had been looking as s/h Mya-Moes) led me to this video about the benefits, or not, of them. https://m.facebook.com/groups/205752...56557414590980

    I was bowled over by the instrument being set up at the end - by the sound, and the amazing amazing back. The pre-2020 price also helped.

    Very light, fantastic sound either acoustically or played through an amp and just so easy to play. Quite a revelation after my 'stock' ukuleles.

    Thoroughly chuffed.
    Pete Howlett 'Deacon' - low G (That One With The Amazing Back)
    Gold Tone small bodied Tenor resonator - high g
    Kala Tenor resonator - low G

    Also Mark Savoy G melodeon, Andy Norman DG Anglo, Alba & MK whistles, Dave Copley flutes and Jon Swayne bagpipes. Well, keeps me busy.

    Looks quite nice and I'd be amazed if it didn't sound better than your other ukuleles but the name would put me off forever.

    Strange.... if you are acquainted with the work of Son House you'll see what I am referencing.
