Snail ukuleles have always been a bit of dark horse... The BHC-5 and BHC-6 series were the first of many affordable cedar/spruce ukuleles to hit the market. A few years later, this ukulele manufacturer they had everyone queuing around the corner to get a glimpse of their S60C and S60T models.

Now, in 2022 they are venturing into the solid body ukulele market with this stunning flamed maple electro concert ukulele!

This particular genre of ukulele has fewer rules than most - Flight and Risa will make you sound like Jimi Hendrix but if you want a pure 'ukulele' tone, your options are to either take an acoustic instrument and put a pickup inside which has its own beneficial and negative implications for the player.

One of the best ways to electrify a ukulele is to take the best of both worlds and you get something like this. A solid mahogany body with either a flamed maple or acacia veneer top. This one has the traditional TV yellow stain over the maple exactly the same way that the earliest Gibson Les Pauls.

This electro ukulele uses classic concert fluorocarbon strings with an active undersaddle piezo system. The master controls on the front of the body control the instruments overall volume (so you can turn up when you solo and turn down when you are strumming) and a tone control which sweeps the frequencies from one end to the other and can limit the amount of bass/treble etc.

The neck feels extremely comfortable with its ebony fingerboard and bridge and 35mm nut width. The machineheads are good and compared to the options on the market available over the last 10 years it really feels like Snail have learned from others mistakes. We are really impressed with these, can you tell?

Do not be put off by the removable film on the black plastic parts on the back. Once this is taken off, the plastic will look pristine.

Listing shows a typical example.
