I would confidently proclaim the tone on this ukulele to be among the best. We will be showing more ukes, as it’s possible, from this gifted craftsman. However, this one is borrowed for review from another UU member. The notorious MM Stan, a true master of ukulele acquisition. This tenor features a redwood top and Tasmanian Blackwood sides and back. It has Cocobolo binding and African Blackwood for the faceplate. It has the standard 17 inch tenor scale and the traditional fan bracing. Well built with ample support and attention to detail. It’s a “clean” build while still retaining a hand made look and sound. Congratulations Stan! Kudos brother Beau. And aloha to all our supporters that make what we do possible.
No reverb compression etc. Recorded to be as true as possible. I thought the recording level was good but was just listening with studio monitors. I realize now after hearing it through small computer speakers that my recording level was too high for the boom and low end on this particular instrument. Darn. Still refining and learning…For a cleaner listen use good headphones or monitors. Next time we get a Hannam I will surely have it down. Thanks for checking out the review. See you next time, a hui ho!
