B-Stock Snail SUC-M2 Electro Concert Ukulele
There’s a fault with this electro concert. There’s a buzz when you play the E-string (or E on the C string), with that note causing a vibration in the preamp. This is inside the mid-range EQ knob. If you have this turned down to 0, or full, it doesn’t vibrate - but anywhere in between it does buzz. I have discounted this uke right down to £99, so it can be used as an acoustic uke, though an amp with the middle flat (you could compensate on the amp), or you can replace the generic pickup as a project.
This SUC-M2 from snail is great quality solid mahogany top concert electro uke, with an attractive gloss finish. It is equipped with an active pickup with tone and volume controls so you can amplify the really pleasant tone the mahogany produces.
The SUC-M2 has a Snail’s nice looking signature headstock shape, with a maple inlay displaying the company’s logo. The bridge and fingerboard are ebony, and very smooth ebony at that. Together with the fluorocarbon strings and comfortable neck profile, the uke is a nice one to play.
This gloss-finish uke has more brightness than you might expect from mahogany, with some lovely projection and interesting harmonic complexity. It chimes particularly well when strummed.
There’s a basic gig bag supplied too.
