Smiger Solid Spruce Top Comfort Edge Concert Ukulele
Instrument is £145, with an option to send to EU/USA for an additional £25.
This is a fine-looking ukulele, concert size with a solid spruce top, arched laminate acacia back, slotted headstock, gloss finish, comfort edge, geared tuners and Aquila strings. In short, a lot of specification for your money.
This instrument was part of a consignment I ordered to assess. Having set them up, they now play very nicely. If you inspect the ukulele very carefully you might find very tiny finish flaws, but these have to be looked for - and are not at all a distraction from the great value of this instrument. (Or, uncommon at this price in general).
The sound is clear and bright, but not lacking in body. In fact it chimes really nicely. It certainly punches above its weight in terms of the amount of ‘sound for the pound’ you get.
