Description

The Noah Campanella (Super Concert) – a concert body with a tenor scale neck – was first added to the Noah range back in 2014. It was an instant hit, appealing especially to players who would normally play a standard tenor, but liked the difference in tone that a concert body brings. After lots of requests to bring it back, and with it being a personal favourite of mine, I decided that we would make some more! It is essentially the same spec as the ones we made in 2014, though as with all our ukuleles since then, we are now making the top slightly thinner in order to give more projection. The very talented Matt Hicks, who is performing at GNUF 2017, is currently using this ukulele and you can have a listen to it being played here.

The Noah Electro Campanella benefits from the addition of a Fishman Sonitone preamp, which delivers a dynamic but natural sound, and has adjustable volume and tone controls.

    I purchased my Campanella Super Concert a month ago, and the buying process was really good with Matt being so helpful and informative. The Uke arrived on time and very well packaged, and safely in its nice quality padded gigbag.
    The Campanella is a really lovely looking instrument and the photos on the website don’t really do it justice.
    The finish is gorgeous and much better than I have seen on some more quite expensive instruments, and very accurately applied binding which is lovely. The frets and action are perfect and the fretboard is very well worked too. The Spruce top has a really gorgeous shimmer to it that Luthiers call Silking and something that you only usually see in much more expensive instruments. The back and sides are beautifully figured and I love the heel cap matching the binding. The tuners are very smooth, accurate and unobtrusive, with a perfectly cut bone nut.
    The fret markers and side dots are really good looking and well done, as is the bridge plate that matches the fretboard wood with a bone saddle. The action is spot on for me and it plays so easily with Barre chords made comfortable to execute. The pickup controls are tucked away in the soundhole where they are very well fixed and the socket and battery slot is offset on the bottom of the lower bout, next to the fitted strap pin. It’s also got a lovely Noah logo inlay in pearl on the headstock which is quite classy. The strings are Aquilas which seem to suit the Campanella well.
    It has a really beautiful response right across the strings and right up the neck, with lovely harmonics at the 12th and others. It’s got a really well done cutaway and lovely Abalone rosette too to finish off what is a gorgeous instrument in every way and a real pleasure to play: a finger picking dream! I will give an update review about the end of November, 2020. David.x
