Review - Enya Nova U Concert

Pic 2

This is an innovative new ukulele from Enya in China.

Available as a plain acoustic, and as a electro-acoustic from Amazon (click the links to buy).

Current prices at Amazon are £79.99 and £159.99 including a semi-hard case, capo, strap, spare strings, jack cable and USB charging cable. Amazing value and very acceptable quality, too.

The electro-acoustic features a fancy "transacoustic" pre-amplifier, which also operates via a transducer internally to add effects even when playing stand-alone. Very cool.

And it looks cool too!

Review of Enya Nova U


I've added this track as many people have asked to hear what the uke sounds like without amplification, so this is done straight into the camcorder mic.
