    Default Cort UKE-BWS Soprano - REVIEW

    In my view, certainly the best Martin clone soprano ukulele at this sort of price, and in fact it punches much higher than that.

    That one sounds pretty darned good, full and rich, not thin and banjoey.

    Anyone know of a good dealer for these in the USA? The company website lists a lot of USA dealers, but they all look like guitar stores and I wonder what kind of ukulele setup they would provide.

    A cracking sounding uke - just the ticket for me and a far cry from what people associate sopranos as

    Always nice to hear a good soprano. My favorite. I think some of the poor quality ones really contribute a lot to the negative impression of them.

    A couple of years ago, I bought the Acacia (or was it Australian Black Wood?) version of this uke. It is a delightful intrument.

    I'm tempted, but I've already got too many really nice mahogany sopranos!

    I've been wondering which Martin "clone" I would hypothetically get if Kiwaya didn't exist. This would definitely be on my shortlist along with a Sigma SUM-2S and Flight MUS2. Maybe the Eastman soprano as well.

    The Sigma is the closest to this one price wise though still a touch more cost (in the UK at least). Very nice uke. The Eastman is gorgeous, though I didn't like that it had geared pegs. Also twice the price of this Cort.

    Suspect the value for money on the Cort is a bit part of the recommendation!

    This IS the blackwood version John - doesn't look like it at first glance!
