Eden Origin Concert Ukulele and Hard Case - A World of Ukes Brand
Eden is a new brand from World of Ukes, sourced and designed to specification in China. The first in this series of instruments is the Origin, a concert ukulele with solid cedar top, laminate acacia back and sides, a gloss finish, hardwood binding and rope style inlay and rope binding and soundhole rosette.
The purpose of the Eden brand is to match and beat the flood of own-brand direct-from-China imports that look nice but aren’t great. With Eden, each ukulele is set up and euipped with two strap buttons and good quality closed geared tuners. The Eden logo is inlaid into the headstock.
With Eden ukuleles you get incredible value. This great looking ukulele has a stylish cream hard case with a dark red interior included in the price - and even without that, the value for a solid top instrument is already great.
The sound is rich and well balanced, with a good depth - topped off with a bit of a sparkle at the treble end. It is nice to play too, with a 35mm nut. Available in limited numbers, this is a ukulele that truly leads the way at its price point.
Fitted with Aquila strings which sound good on this instrument, although I've also tried various other string types and personally prefer World of Ukes Clarity strings. If you like, these can be added for ten pounds by add this product to you basket. http://worldofukes.co.uk/merchandise/clarity-fitted-strings
