The Tanglewood TU 8 Cove Creek Soprano Ukulele looks great and feels great. The TU8 is a great instrument for live playing, or those who just want to play in their bedrooms. The TU-8 is really attractive, made entirely of mahogany and finished in a gloss varnish. This gives the uke huge depth and projection. With gut strings, this uke has excellent attack verses nylon strings.
