Allegro Sopranino is Antica Ukuleleria’s little one.
The sound is punchy and unexpectedly powerful compared to its dimension: while it’s not full and rich like the sound of a standard size uke it has its own character (it reminds me of an old valve radio) which will continue to grow the more you use it.
And most of all…it’s super cute!
The new design makes it very thin and easy to carry around.
The body comes from a single carved piece of cherry or chestnut wood.
Standard soundboard is made with the same wood of the body, but it can be upgraded to the reliable Red Spruce to have more volume. Please note that spruce is more delicate and will show the normal signs of wear more quickly.
A special string setting allows this sopranino model to sound clear and loud to the standard GCEA tuning despite the small scale lenght (28cm).
