Details

These ukuleles sound and feel brilliant. The Rebel ukuleles are very modern feeling and looking in a way that reminds us of the AnueNue's. They also have a touch of Imua/Kiwaya/Takumi's traditional, thinner body stylings but with a nice slick feeling neck. We shouldn't be surprised how good these ukes are given that Rebel are the manufacturers of KoAloha's Opio line - truly these ukes seem to take some of the popular stylings of other brands and put them together to make something new and extremely exciting.

The Rebel Creme Brulee thinline solid mango soprano has a beautiful, sweet sound with some really beautiful pinging trebles. The sound is a little brighter and more immediate than its slightly deeper bodied sister, the Double Creme, but you never feel that it is shrill or sibilant. It retains the creamy smoothness of the Mango sound, just sharpens it a little. The sustain and volume, for slim bodied soprano, are bewilderingly huge!

Much like the KoAloha mango ukuleles, these ukes go a long way in establishing that mango is an authentic tonewood destined to play a big role in the future of ukulele manufacturing. Certainly, right now you would be hard pressed to find something that could outclass The Rebel or KoAloha Opio ukuleles at the same price. The mango they are using is gorgeous!

Phil and I fell madly in love with Rebel at the 2019 NAMM show and we were delighted to be able to share the Rebel experience with our colleagues and customers when opening the delivery for the first time. There isn't a bad or mediocre ukulele in the range - just well made ukes you will want to play every time you open the bag.

Sure, the bag is a bit flamboyant and won't be to everyone's taste - but at least you'll always know where you put your Rebel!
