Last summer, while at the Isle of wight ukulele festival, Danielle Laura – one half of the amazing Mersey Belles – came over to my stall to try out some of my ukes. The Monkeypod Soprano was the one that caught her eye, but as a regular live performer she was on the lookout for something which would plug in – unfortunately, at that time I only had the monkeypod concert and tenor with fishman sonitones. But we got chatting and I said that we could build something to her requirements. As it was, she was so taken with the Monkeypod Soprano that she basically wanted that very same specification but with a Fishman Sonitone fitted inside the soundhole.
Fast forward around six months and the electro soprano is finally here and had it’s first public outing last month at the Big House in the Country Ukulele weekend! Danielle is an extremely talented musician and vocalist and I’m thrilled that she is now a Noah Ukuleles endorsee. Look out for The Mersey Belles at festivals this summer, including The Acoustic Festival of Britain and the Ukulele Festival of Scotland.
In addition to Danielle’s electro soprano, we also decided to make a few more which are now available in my online shop. However, only a small number are available so if you are interested don’t hang about 🙂
