This year at the Uke Room we’re showcasing the work of some of the UK and Europe finest ukulele builders. I have chosen ukulele builders that are doing something very special and Marco Todeschini is definitely doing that. I met Marco at the Ukulele Festival of Scotland and fell in love with his ukuleles so much that I bought one for myself. Now I’m proud to say that we’re the UK’s exclusive stockists of his Moderno range.
The modernos have a very focused tone with a lovely warmth. They are also one of the most comfortable ukes to play with a nice smooth fretboard and low action.
Marco’s moderno range present features that are pushed to a much more innovative concept, including exciting upgrades such as cutaways, bevels and alternative bracing patterns. This concert uke features a solid red spruce top paired with beautifully flamed solid maple back and sides It features Marco’s gorgeous stained binding and bevel – this time in blue. This one is a real sound monster. I was playing some gentle clawhammer to test it and every note rang out loud and true with great articulation.
We’ll be getting many more batches of Marco’s ukuleles in the future but hurry, the last ones sold out before I even got to list them!
