I’m thankful that this has been such a brilliant collaboration. Your willingness to work with me every step of the way on the design has resulted in a one-of-a kind slotted peghead tenor ukulele that has elegance, artistic beauty, incredible sustain and the pure voice of an Angel that, in my opinion, is second to none. Understanding that I play honky-tonk and country music with my band and that I wanted a super full sound with emphasis on the mids and with a great low register, you built the perfect ukulele. By choosing a set of Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides that is, in and of itself, a work of art and pairing that up with a beautiful Curly Redwood top you achieved just the look and tone I was after. Not only is she beautiful, but her tone, clarity, boldness of sound and absolute “purity” on every note and chord is perfect. I’m amazed by how big of a voice she has with no vibration or distortion. Jay whatever you did to build and to bring Angel to life, forget it all, as there can only be one! – Paul Ruben, renowned magician and ukulele lover and performer.
