So many great ideas started by building on perfection... and it's fair to say that re-imagining the ukulele is a brave task. Romero Creations deserve a pat on the back for taking the traditional style and building design of the ukulele back to the drawing board. Their tiny tenor ukulele is the result of compressing and reworking some key components to work in our modern day 'space saving' lives.
Romero Creations tiny tenor is everything you want from a tenor ukulele in feel but reduced in size. It's build to fit into spaces previously only a concert ukulele would slot into. 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 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.
This model is part of Romero Creations new Chinese made range and features a solid spruce top with laminate mahogany back and sides and a satin finish. In the same vein as Japanese made ukuleles like Kiwaya and Takumi; these Romero instruments have a mellow nature. It's perfect for somebody looking to play sleepy melodies to themselves with all the nuance and precision normally associated with a louder instrument.
We are reducing the price of these Chinese made Tiny Tenors by 10% to clear through the last of the stock. Although they are fundamentally well made, there may well be some small cosmetic issues with the finish. Pictures show an average example.
