    Default Jupiter Ukulele Tenor #77 - Mini Review & Sound Sample

    I put together a little video review and sound sample of my new Jupiter Tenor. I'm having a great time with this beautiful custom instrument.



    Thanks for watching! Let me know if you have any questions of comments (and please remind me to make the next video with a better background than my cluttered man cave! )

    Oasis right now. They’re OK but I’m not in love with them. I’ll give them a little more time to see if they “ripen”, but if not, I’ll go with either Worth Browns or Uke Logic. Probably Uke Logic.

    Really nice looking and sounding uke. Seems to have really nice clarity.

    TBH, I had the same thought about the low G - ok, but might could be better. I was going to recommend Living Water since I haven't tried Uke Logic. Maybe the Pepe Romero set but it has a wound low G.

    Half the fun of a new ukulele is finding the right string combination.

    Congrats and thanks for sharing! This is the 4th sound sample i've seen of 4 different Jupiter Ukes (two tenors, two guileles), and I've been very impressed by the elegant and tasteful design/appointments. More importantly (to me) I've been been floored by the balanced tone and sustain. For the prices i've seen advertised on these models, these instruments outclass some instruments at twice their cost ~

    Regarding the low G; to my ears I think a flat wound string would definitely enhance the tone, but often these choices come down to personal likes and preferences ~

    Definitely worth trying the TI-30. I have that as an F string on the baritone guitalele. The tenor guitalele has the Romero wound which isn't flat but also works well. Of course both of those have two deeper wound strings underneath them, so could be different if they were the only one in a 4 string set.
