Currently I have 4 and I have tried lots of ukuleles and banjoleles. I like them as they are small and easy to cary around and sound much better than traveler guitars. However as many of the ukuleles on the market are cheap, made from crappy woods and not assembled with care, it is hard to find a good instrument among them. So here is the Kremona Coco Tenor Ukulele.
This uke is made in Bulgaria by Kremona. It is made by premium woods and sounds amazing. The craftsmanship is perfect and I have to say it is the best sounding ukulele I have played. The price is mid range. I have mine for 3 years now and the only problem with it are the tuners that are turning darker. I was interested what is causing this instrument to sound better than my other ukes so I looked at the sound spectral analyser and I found that it has a very strong harmonics 5 tones bellow the main frequency. I do not know if that is because of the wood or the shape (it has elliptical resonator hole ) but I like the result.
Coco Tenor Specs: Red cedar solid top; Solid Indian rosewood back and sides; African mahogany neck; Indian rosewood fingerboard, bridge and headstock overlay; Special wooden rosette; Gold-plated machine heads; Satin polyurethane finish; Bone nut and saddle; Set dovetail neck joint; Aquila “Nylgut” model Strings; 37 mm at nut; 18 frets; 432 mm scale length.
It is not easy to find one of these but if you get one you will not be disappointed.
