Default Got myself a baritone ukulele

I had some money for Christmas and I wanted a baritone ukulele. After much YouTube trawling and reading reviews I decided on a couple of choices, one of them being the Brunswick BU4B, and it turned out that the music shop in the town had one in stock, so after a play in it I bought it. It was strung reentrant but I wanted bari tuning (DGBE) so I got it restrung with D'addario EJ88Bs. And it sounds, looks and feels lovely! This is a fairly low budget uke (about 80) so a laminate, but that suits me. I'd rather not have the humidity issue to be honest!

Anyway here's how it sounds.

Congrats! I currently just have a laminate Soprano Uke but I used to have a solid wood Tenor and I used a low G rather than re-entrant tuning with a high G.

Have fun!
