ENYA'S NEWEST UKE HITS THE MARKET APRIL 2018

UNBOXING THE NEW ENYA M6 (Video)


Ukuladies and gentlemen! Today we get an EXCLUSIVE sneak peak at Enya's M6 ukulele. This
ukulele will go on sale this month and you all will be the first to see it on video!!!

A few months ago, Enya released a photo of their newest ukulele, which would hit the market Spring 2018. The inlay on the fingerboard, the tuning machines on one side (AND ORANGE), as well as the cutaway design really caught my attention.

If you follow my channel, you know that I'm no stranger to Enya ukuleles. I really love their ukuleles because they are affordable, come with a great bundle, have strap buttons, and are just a little bit different -in a good way. Some of their ukuleles are made of laminates that are much more resistant to weather changes than wooden ukuleles and I just love that.

As a music teacher, I always want to find the best deal for my students while also making sure they have an instrument they'll enjoy for years to come. That's why I always recommend Oscar Schmidt, Kala, Lanikai, and Enya.



For those of you who enjoy unboxing videos, I have attached the Enya M6 Unboxing video below. In the video I tune and play the ukulele so that we can hear what it sounds like. At the risk of embarrassing myself, I played a few barre chords so that we could test how easy or how difficult it would be to play these chords. I'll be the first to admit that I have weak hands and my barre chords don't always sound great. There's no shame in that! We all have something we are working on.

I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to get nicely ringing strings and no buzzes or muted strings.

Obviously right now it way too early to give a full review, but I will continue playing the ukulele in future videos and keep you updated on how it's doing.

FAVORITE FEATURES

As you can see from the video, the entire ukulele is aesthetically pleasing. The first thing that stands out to me is the headstock. The tuning machines are orange and gold and they're all. on one side, making the ukulele look like a fender or electric guitar

I think the next attention-getter is the fingerboard. I haven't seen many ukuleles with a design like this. It looks like there is mother of pearl or seashell parts to it as well. These parts appear to change color when they catch the light. 



Finally, the next part of the ukulele that stands out to me is the cutaway on the body. I've never had a ukulele with a cutaway design, so now I feel the pressure to explore the lower end of the neck! 




OTHER ENYA UKULELES

Just in case you're curious about other Enya ukuleles I have unboxed and played, I have added the videos below. The video below features the OMS concert ukulele and the Enya tenor ukulele. These were sent to me as a PR package for reviewing purposes. Both ukuleles were given new homes shortly after :)
