Product description

The popular Brunswick ukulele is now available in a very attractive and tactile maple version. If anything, while the Brunswick mahogany ukulele always scores very highly in customer reviews, this maple version is made to an even higher standard. They look great and feel even nicer, the smoothness of the neck is a particular high point of this ukulele. Soundwise, with Aquila strings equipped, there is a good amount of volume with these ukes. They deliver a bright tone that outperforms many ukuleles in this price bracket. In all, a good choice for a serious beginner, or because of the distinctive look - a good addition to any ukulele collection.

I ordered this item to so I could have one tenor with a low G fitted and the other strung normally.
I picked this uke based on the other reviews. To be honest I was expecting this uke to be good but this is better than good.
all it needed was a slight re-tune and I was up and strumming. the finish is to a high standard. The action is good. the fret wires are well finished.
there is nothing I can say negative about this uke.

Update... I've had this a while now and i'm still very happy . Since the purchase I have developed "Ukulele acquisition Syndrome", I still pick this uke up a lot, even with it's competition. there is something very likable about this one, a real keeper.

Received this Uke as a gift and though it has taken a while to get around to making use if it, I now play it all the time and has become my 'go to' instrument for playing around the house. It plays well, has good intonation and records very well with a lively full tone. The matt finish means there is some noise from rubbing of clothes or skin on the surface but nothing to cause a problem. Well worth the investment.

This instrument plays brightly, well manufactured and a steel at 55 pounds. Sound has many comparison to higher level ukuleles. A keeper.

This is a lovely instrument, and made all the better with the addition of the Aquila strings - gives it a lovely tone. Having tried a cheap uke and nearly giving up, decided to try this and it really does make a difference - a good quality instrument at a very reasonable price.

As a sufferer of UAS (Ukulele Acquisition Syndrome) it has taken me a while to get round to acquiring one of these. I thought I was happy with concert ukes, but I still struggled with D-chords - too many fingers not enough space. It was always going to happen, although I preferred the mahogany version. Not now. For a relatively inexpensive uke the build and finish is exceptional. You may miss the fact that the body is bound, so closely in colour does the binding match the wood, but it is. All glued joints are neat and tight. The frets are well finished on both edges of the fingerboard (unlike my Ibanez which required quite a bit of work).

Size-wise the tenor suits me better that the concert and by God it gets loud if you wallop it, that extra body volume really makes a difference. I'm not convinced that the maple really makes that much difference to the sound which is full with bright overtones. The fact that both are constructed of plywood as opposed to solid also limits the effect of the facing timber. This isn't a bad thing just the reality of making ukes at this price. Frankly the inclusion of Aquila strings as standard is probably more responsible for the good, balanced tone.

The matte finish makes for a very plain ukulele, a positive rather than a negative as far as I'm concerned. I love the design of the headstock, elegant and functional and the tuners are smooth but solid. Now that the strings have settled I rarely have to do anything other than tweak the tuning. The neck is great, for me at least, exactly the right blend of "it's a ukulele so I have a really skinny neck compared to a guitar" and "there's enough here to support and guide".
