This is a new Instrument purchased solely for a review. It a very unusual instrument being electric but this will help a group or band of Ukulele enthusiasts have the advantage of a very individualistic instrument to widen the overall tone and sound of the group. Wonderful for Ukulele solos. A 5 watt amp is all that is needed. Although I suggest a larger 15to 25 watts with a 8″ Speaker or Cone as they like to call them these days, An 8″ cone is used! That will give you interesting acoustic results easily modified by you!
