The Sleepy Baritone
Ah, yes; another sleepy afternoon in Ukuleletown. Robert Wheeler showed up at my door with beer in one hand and a gaggle of ukuleles in the other. How could I resist? Who could?
A 3rd Wave Soprano...nice sound. Don't like laser-etchings
A Ukebrand soprano...beautiful old style sound and look. very light.
(these two are from now defunct companies)
A DaSilva Concert heart...this one surprised me with it's sound and playability.
A DaSilva Soprano heart
A DaSilva Soprano redwood
(Mike DaSilva has it together. Even if he does live on the wrong coast)
A Vega Deluxe Arthur Godfrey Baritone
This is the very baritone that Eddie Connors created and designed and was strung re-entrant. It had a particularly interesting and useful tone for a bari. And the case it came in was so….so…right.
p.s. if you click on the pics, they get bigger...
