It sounds much like a regular uke (in fact so do the metal ones). Maybe with a little more 'cut' but IMO very non-reso sound, at least compared to the guitars.
I'd would have liked to try some higher tensions strings but the music shops around here don't carry much of a variety.

Thanks Darryl. She's away at college right on on music and vocal scholarships and I find myself listening to her YouTube vids a lot. Normally we'd hear her on the piano and guitar during the day and the house is a lot quieter right now.
When her little sister goes two years from now I'm not sure what I'm gonna do... :cry:

That is magnificent, Mike! Sounds great, too.

Did you use the National biscuit cone in that.

Yep, National cone but a off-brand cover.
