This is a premier instrument for those in search of the ultimate ukulele. TODA is simply amazing. My brother told me about him after he played one of his ukes in Japan but it was very hard to get his ukes because he has no public phone, email, website, or any of that. He basically doesn’t want to be bothered. He just wants to build instruments. We have been able to get a few of his instruments and they are exceptional. This is the first concert TODA we've had and it is certainly one of the biggest sounding concerts we've heard.
This is not a flashy build, but is extremely precise inside and out. Every miter joint is perfect. Set and relief of the neck, fretwork, and intonation: perfect. Visually attractive with artistic flow and intelligent design in the body shape, bridge, koa pickguard, abalone dot outlay, and the super cool twisting wave at the top of the headstock. Above all though, the sound on this TODA ukulele is just fantastic! Looking inside I see almost like a miniature steel string guitar bracing. X brace with a transverse brace below the asymmetrical bridge patch. Very different from other ukulele builders and the result is impressive.
Take a listen to a "dry" sound sample from Corey Fujimoto and read more about it's features below.
Our sound samples are recorded for true reference and have no alteration or enhancement. Use quality playback for the most accurate listening.
This instrument features a spruce top that both booms with bass and sparkles with clarity. It's very hard for us to get instruments from this builder so don't hesitate to add this amazing tenor to your collection. It's one of the finest ever made.
Includes a custom hardshell case from TODA and we are also giving the Oasis Ukulele Humidifier.
