Reso Uke

Post by Greg Steil »

Has anyone built a resonater Uke? Tenor size I'm sure. What about bracing? Just got a cone, cover and biscuit, and am curious.

Spend some time on Sven Nystrom's blog.

He makes universally praised reso ukes.

Bracing is the wrong question - you build a framework to take the cone, and then clad that to produce a body. The reso stuff is mixed in with his other builds, but it's all worth reading.
