I have been neglecting my lovely Pono tenor for a while. Last night, I pulled it out of the case and plugged it in to a new set of headphones. I hadn't been able to get much sound out of it to my ears, but it was completely different through the amp and 'phones and I was really happy with the ringing tone and nuance with changing volume in strums. Made me remember to play all of my ukes as often as possible!
I bought this uke at the Windy City Uke Fest in 2008 up in Chicago. Kimo Hussey gave a seminar and played THIS uke at one of the evening events, so I knew it would do wonderful things in the right hands. Kimo told me it was a uke that I could grow into and I now have an idea of what he was talking about. Thanks, Kimo.
