Enya EUC-MS Concert Ukulele - REVIEW

There's been a fair few Enya brand ukuleles on the Got A Ukulele reviews, and it must be said, most have been 'away from the norm'. Plastic ukes, HPL ukes.. But this week we go back to something far more traditional with the new EUC-MS Concert.

Kanile'a SUS-T Tenor Ukulele - REVIEW

Back in 2011 I bought my first truly serious ukulele - the Kanile'a K-1 Tenor. It was flawless, I still own it and adore it. It's been a long time coming to get to feature the brand again, but it finally happened. This is the SUS-T Tenor from Kanile'a.

Got A Ukulele Beginners Tips - Oiling a Fretboard

Following a ukulele review I recently wrote about a uke with a horribly dry fretboard, I was asked in a comment for advice on oiling a fretboard. I realised I didn't have that guide in my beginners page, so figured it was time to set that right 

And it's about time because this is a subject I see talked about an awful lot, and I'm afraid to say that a lot of the advice is questionable and, if followed literally, capable of damaging your instrument! Here's an example of a bad one...

Harley Benton Kahuna CLU-42C Concert Ukulele - REVIEW

I really like ukuleles (and reviews for that matter) that have the capacity to cause people to do a 'double take'. As you will discover I think this falls firmly into that category. This week I am looking at the Kahuna CLU-42C Concert ukulele from Harley Benton.

Forest Ukuleles FUZZ-S Tenor Ukulele - REVIEW

A couple of ukulele reviews ago I mentioned how I liked seeing 'house brand' ukuleles. When a shop has an interest in putting their name to something, it's unlikely they should do a shabby job. Like buses, another one comes along in quick succession. This is the brand new FUZZ-S Tenor from Forest Ukuleles at The Uke Room.

NFC Ukuleles Cedar Tenor Ukulele - REVIEW

Just before the Covid Pandemic shut down most of the globe I took a look at an early build ukulele from a new hand made  brand based in Nicaragua. It was quirky, but intriguingly nice. I'm delighted to see the luthier behind them has kept busy and continued to build. This is another example of an NFC ukulele in tenor scale.

Millar SP-210LL Long Neck Soprano Ukulele - REVIEW

It seems there is no let up in new brands appearing on Got A Ukulele. That's perhaps not so unusual, but a fair number of them are very serious instruments as opposed to the 'Amazon gold rush' stuff. This is a good thing. This is another new one to me. The SP-210LL Long Neck from Millar.
