"It has been a delight and a privilege to work with Gord and Char in the
creation of Brunhild the Baritone ukulele.
When we first talked about Brunhild I described the certain sound that I needed to hear in a great baritone ukulele. My main requirement was that the instrument should have a big sound, loud and full. I wanted it to possess a certain power; a quality that I kept referring to as 'Oomf'.
G and C went to work and along the way they taught me about the acoustical properties of various tone-woods. I also learned about the importance of string types.
The process has given me a greater respect for the balancing act of crafting looks, playability and sound that is the art of luthiery. I now own a beautiful baritone ukulele whose 'Oomf' factor is second to none."
