Details

These super concert Rebel ukuleles sound and feel brilliant. The Rebels 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 styling but with a nice slick feeling neck. We shouldn't be surprised how good these ukes are given that Rebel are the manufactures of KoAloha's opio line - truly these ukes seem to take some of the popular styling of other brands and put them together to make something new and extremely exciting.

The double creme super concert ukulele is made of some really gorgeous, eccentric looking mango wood and has a look that feels striking but still understated. The double creme has no binding or fancy cosmetic detail except for the geometric-esque fret dots. You know by looking at the wood on this concert ukulele that you are paying for a well finished instrument made of good select woods, with good hardware. You get a really sugary, bright mellow note out of this ukulele. Somehow, it still cuts through if you strum it. It is not loud and clear like the spruce top cheesecake model but has a much more traditional, whimsical ukulele sound to it that sings a song to you without quite as much sharpness as other instruments made of koa or acacia might.

The tenor neck on concert body gives the instrument a very unique voicing too. The meaty sustain of each note is apparent but the tighter, thinner concert body goes a long way in focusing the attack and release of each note. Much like the KoAloha mango models, 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.

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!
