Everjoys / Eco Soprano Ukulele Beginner Pack (Rainbow) - REVIEW

Back to business with another 'Amazon Choice' ukulele, and one that is clearly marketed at beginners. This is the Everjoys Soprano Beginner Pack, also branded in the USA (I 'think') as Eco. A shorter break than I anticipated, but your kind words mean a lot so let's crack on. Just think I need more regular breaks in 2021!

Islander MAT-4 Spalted Maple Tenor Ukulele - REVIEW

Seeing as Kanile'a are probably my all time favourite ukulele brand, I guess it's only natural that I like to feature their far eastern 'value' line of ukuleles - the Islander series from time to time. This is the Islander MAT-4 Spalted Maple Tenor, kindly sent to me by Nicolas at Uke Shop Barcelona.
