    Default Ukulele Reviews w/ sound samples

    Hey everyone

    I thought that since everyone is after reviews of Ukuleles and sound samples of new ones they've acquired or looking for how they sound when played, that it might be a good idea to have a thread just for posting a review written/video and a sound sample video/audio or just a sound sample video/audio.

    So I played all six of my Ukuleles using the same song for each, to give you an idea of how each one sounds. I thought I would post them here.



    Astrid: No Name Brand Soprano. Aquila Strings. Cost (optional): 12



    Lilo: Ohana SK10S. Aquila Strings. Cost: 50



    Rhea: Luna Tattoo Pineapple Soprano. Aquila Strings. Cost:62

    Will post the rest in the post under this!

    Astrid/Unknown Brand || Lilo/Ohana SK10S || Rhea/Luna Tattoo Pineapple || Hoa/Koa Pili Koko || Hope/Tanglewood TU1 CE || Kupuna/Eleuke Rosewood 100 Series || Joy/Poiple Flea || Cora/Clearwater Vita

    That's probably Miss D, she knew I was doing videos and knew she wasn't supposed to disturb me! Didn't realise she'd been caught on camera!

    Great idea. I'm working on a video of my Kala as you suggested in my thread. Need to charge my camera battery first.

    That is awesome that you made videos. always a good thing to have sound samples
    Here is my sound samples page for my site. I need to get the Brad Donaldson up, but there are currently 30 samples with links to reviews

    Hey, Joey -

    Wow, you've become quite the shameless video performer, haven't you?
    The only think I have to say (aside from another "well done") is that perhaps you should not sing for the 'ukulele comparisons, and let only the sound of the instruments come through on their own.

    I got my wife, my dogs, and my Kanile'a. What else would I need?
