Mike DaSilva makes some of the finest vintage ukulele replicas. Now he turns to his own vision. He explores the abstract and asymmetrical to make anew. I think he’s made something very beautiful and definitely unique, but the real news here is that this new uke sounds So Good!
Away from the noise of NAMM I realize that this instrument is much more than a new look, it’s an advancement in his voicing. Not overly bassy or super bright, but just right. The beauty in tone matches the boldness in design. Hats off to Mike, well done and it’s an honor to show your work.
I give DaSilva’s new thin body tenor my highest recommendations.
(especially if you like to turn over your uke and watch the waves roll in~ so nice ~ :D)
Here’s the red one that came and went within a day-
