Every year I aim to bring something new to the Noah range and for 2021, the model I’ve added is the Noah Super Tenor.
Your first question might be what exactly is a Super Tenor? Well, the Noah Super Tenor has a standard tenor neck with a scale length of 17 inches, but has a larger baritone-sized body. The advantage of this is that you get a lovely, richer sound with added depth, but you still retain the GCEA standard ukulele tuning.
In terms of woods, this ukulele has that classic combination of mahogany back and sides with a spruce top. Other features include a slotted headstock, pin bridge and wider nut width of 39mm. It has a gloss finish to the body, but the neck has a satin finish which feels very smooth and comfortable. There is an abalone inlay around the soundhole and also more abalone paired with Indian rosewood for the edge binding.
This model was reviewed on Got A Ukulele in October 2021 and received the highest score yet of any Noah instrument. You can watch the YouTube review below and click here to read the full website review.
