These soprano ukuleles have a body slightly wider than others. The scale length is normal, but the wider body gives them a fuller sound, similar to a concert ukulele.

 

They can be made with Blackwood or Red Spruce soundboards. The Red Spruce has a mellower sound than the Blackwood.

These instruments are constructed for use and supplied with ball-end strings. They are suited to be tuned A D F# B, or other similar variations, including a low A (different string required).

The current price for ukuleles is AUD$450 which includes a soft case. Occasionally I sell prototype and "cosmetically imperfect" instruments at a reduced price.

For other instruments, variations and prices, please contact me.
