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 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.
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".Read more ›

This is by far the most wonderful sounding ukulele in my rather large collection. It sounds far nicer and louder than both the soprano and baritone ones I own. Read morePublished 7 months ago by UK88

Love the sounds made by this. It is much better than the soprano I had before. This is good for people with bigger hands as the soprano is just too damn small. Read morePublished on 6 Mar. 2015 by Penguinasaur
