Enya Nova U - Red Polycarbonate/Carbon Fiber Concert Ukulele with accessories
The Southern Ukulele Store are delighted to offer this stunning red Enya Nova U concert ukulele. This thinline concert ukulele body of the Nova U models are made with a blend of polycarbonate and carbon fibre.
These ukuleles are super lightweight and any weirdness you feel when you pick one up for the first time quickly disappears. Plus, the satin finish on a synthetic body is a really nice extra touch.
The presentation of the Enya Nova U ukulele range is seriously good. The tuner buttons match the body, the fret dots (start shaped) match the body, the bridge is the same material as the body and also colour matched and the hardware and matching strap buttons feel very good quality. Even the gigbag matches, although it doesn't do much in the way of protection.
The cutaway is really well designed too which a bevel going into the back of the body - this allows real access to the upper frets! The neck profile is similar to the brands we already know and love at this price but with a slight radius which aids many people playing barre chords. It sounds surprisingly good, with colourful undertones and some nice dark sustain on the bass. However, because it's polycarbonate, it does sound very bright. The plastic nature of the fingerboard does reflect slightly in the tone.
All things considered, this is a very good little uke. It would make for an excellent present and is a great addition to any ukulele collection. Listing shows a typical example - some will have 'Enya' written on the headstock and some 'Nova U'.
Please note: Yes, you might pay a few extra pounds buying the Enya Nova U from us rather than Amazon, but we include a comprehensive set up and quality check on each instrument for shipping it out.
