Romero Creations STC Solid Koa Concert Ukulele #200024
Romero Creations are building on perfection. Re-imagining the ukulele is an incredibly brave task and one that they've completed spectacularly. They deserve a pat on the back for taking the traditional style and building design of the ukulele back to the drawing board. Romero Creations have successfully compressed and reworked some key components to work in our modern day 'space saving' lives.
The STC is everything you want from a concert ukulele in feel but reduced in size and build to fit into spaces other concerts couldn't reach. So this is a concert uke, but with the overall dimensions of a soprano. The reduction at the headstock gives the illusion of more space at the top of the neck. The topsy-turvy body design will probably not be to every player's 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 Hawaiian koa models are a little bit more bubbly and mellow in their output. In the same vein as Japanese made ukuleles like Kiwaya and Takumi; this range of Vietnamese made Romero instruments have a calm nature. They're perfect for somebody looking to play sleepy melodies to themselves with all the nuance and precision normally associated with a louder instrument.
