It's no easy task to re-imagine the ukulele, but the mango tiny tenor ukulele from
Romero Creations have managed it! They've taken the traditional ukulele style and compressed it down to fit into our modern, space saving lives.
The tiny tenor is all you want from a
tenor ukulele, just reduced in size. It's built to fit spaces only a concert ukulele could previously reached. The reduction at the headstock gives the illusion of more space at the top of the neck and the topsy-turvy body design will probably not be to every players taste. However, those that like pineapple ukuleles with the Ditson like tightness in the bass will agree that this ukulele has a fantastically clean and honest sound.
The mango models are beautifully mellow with a little bit less bite than the koa. In the same vein as Japanese made ukuleles like
Kiwaya and Takumi; this range of Vietnamese made Romero instruments have a mellow nature. They're just perfect if you want to play a sleepy melody with all the nuance and precision normally associated with a louder instrument.
Some very small pits in the gloss finish are to be expected, owing the fact that no grain filler is used before the gloss finish is applied. Pictures show actual instrument.
