    Wink NUD for the PINK enya nova!

    Just some thoughts and an okay sound sample

    https://vimeo.com/393093968

    A couple of things:
    - during the review (??) part I think I literally describe the unboxing of this uke (is this better or worse than watching an unboxing though ) so if you just want to listen to how it sounds skip to 10:50 ish

    - I prefer the narrower nut width


    - not everyone is blessed with an NPR voice and some people (actually a good 40% of people I've gamed with, haha) have brought to my attention that my voice can come across as kind of whiny with valley-girl inflections (But I'm working on toning it down!!) so just putting this disclaimer here

    - please help me with any advice on harmonics (string choices, technique, breathing exercises???)

    Very good playing. Enjoyed that. Your Enya sounds quite nice as well.

    Will you have to get a different one if you change the color of your hair?

    Three people in our group have those ukes, including myself. We all like them.

    Very surprised that it's your loudest uke of the bunch you mentioned owning.

    Thanks Yuni. I actually liked your description of the smaller nut and neck. I do have tiny hands so I look for that (yeah you do have longer fingers or that's a really tiny nut. wish I did).
    Looks like from the website it only comes in concert size. I'm wanting to try another soprano.
    I did like the sound of it and thanks for your playing. I'm not one to ask on harmonics, but I enjoyed it.

    I actually got out my fluke right after and compared and the Enya is still louder I think!! But right now I have the Aquila red strings on the fluke which I think arenít as loud as the fluorocarbons I had on before.
