Details

Electric ukuleles are very of the moment! Lots are now available from Risa, IMUA, Pono and now Big Island have joined in. These ukes, made in China, are excellent value for money, being about half the price of comparably specced models from Pono and IMUA - but you still get the Fishman Pro passive undersaddle uke pickup, a nice padded gigbag, and beautiful looking cuts of wood. ​ This model has a chambered body, like a lot of the electric ukes available today, which makes them nice and light and ideal for stage use.

With only a simple volume control knob onboard, you would need to rely on your amp or preamp unit for your tone shaping. But, the Fishman pickup makes a good sound which does sound authentically ukulele-ish, not at all electric guitar like. ​ Bear in mind that there is very little acoustic volume - enough for quiet late night personal practice - so you'll need a headphone amp or amplifier, and an instrument cable, to make noise!

The one shown in the photos is a good representation of average - each one will vary a little in appearance, so contact us for photos of current stock if you wish.
