    I really appreciate the time you took to break this down for us. I get the feeling not much can beat the Anuenue in your current Uke world and I hear and see why. Love the “Sikyi Groove” , where can I absorb that? Thanks again, nice playing.
    Uke with me if you want to live...

    Yea, the Anuenue is a good uke.

    You can download the song from my Reverbnation page. Just look for Sikyi Groove. Based on a West African rhythm called "sikyi".

    Here is a video I put together quite a while back for Sikyi Groove, but it's on the baritone. Slows down about 1 minute in. Not that easy to follow I think. I'll make a better video using the tenor.

    Oh boy this is so perfect! I just changed an order from an opio concert to the AMM3 and this review sealed the deal.
    Many thanks!

    Thanks for the comparison! This will be helpful to many, as I think these are becoming the two most recommended ukes in the $600 price range. I have a Rebel, which is made in the same factory as the Opio, and the AMM3. As much as I love my Rebel, which is a step above the Opio, imo, the AMM3 has become my favorite uke I think. Even over my KoAloha and Kanile'a. It pretty much does it all for me, and has cured my UAS (for now). I can't believe that I found the perfect uke, and it was only $599 with a case and shipping. I love the richness of the mahogany tone. In your video and on my laptop the AMM3 sounds a little on the quiet side, which would not be surprising for mahogany. But it is not a quiet uke at all. The rich tone is projected very well. Best uke under $600 imo.

    Thanks for posting that review. I've heard nothing but praise for the Anuenue lineup. I recently bought an Anuenue T30 tenor (from their Hawaiian Dream series) for a vacation home and it's a very well made, great sounding uke for around half the price of the AMM3. It's all solid African mahogany, like the AMM3, and while it's much cheaper, it's very similar in sound as a result. Setup was good right out of the box and frets were well dressed. I'm impressed with Anuenue and looking to get a Bird model in the future.

    I hope you will like it! The AMM3 is a beautiful looking and playing instrument, but very different to the touch, feel and note attack compared to a concert ukulele. A horse of a different Colour than your Aklot!

    Anuenue AMM tenor - Magic Fluke Koa Tenor - Cocobolo concert - Kamaka Tiki concert - Cort concert - Ohana LN soprano.
