    Default Enya Nova U Pro Tenor Ukulele - REVIEW

    A LOT of people begged them for a tenor. A lot begged them to change the frets..

    I suspect a lot of people will be impressed..

    Baz, you're right, I don't like plastic ukes at all. But I do like your videos so much that I watched it anyway.
    Pity, isn't it, that all good ukes can't have those frets....
    I didn't like that color....

    I’m staggered at the frets for the ticket price.

    Great review Baz! I appreciate the detail that you don't see on the other "fluff" reviews. Got one on preorder.

    Thanks!

    Yes I saw a 'review' of one yesterday which was mighty odd - basically just reading out the specs they'd been sent.. Ugh..

    I thought the Titanium strings were a bizarre choice for an all plastic uke but actually they sound surprisingly good. I just find that they suit only very specific ukes but maybe synthetic ukes are one of those.

    I really hope they make a concert pro model as well with those metal frets.

    The metal frets were a "deal maker" for me, and I too have one on pre-order. That is an amazing price considering the metal frets, and it would sure seem to alter the playing field compared with ukes such as the Outdoor Ukulele or Magic Fluke Fleas. Thanks for the review.

    Yep. I've considered this long and hard against the Outdoor Tenor. I think the Outdoor still wins on PROVEN ruggedness, but in every other department and obviously price, this wipes the floor with it

    Excellent review. I have one on pre-order thanks to your article Baz. Those hemispherical ends on the frets are a great touch. I am wondering how well the molded in "nut" is going to hold up. Should be a fun uke. We'll see how well it holds up in the car.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don't begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    I've just ordered one for my wife to take to work. It's on pre-order. I wonder how long it will take? Enya is saying the 1st part of July???
