Archtop ukes

Rainer — Feb 23, 2015 12:33AM HST

Lately, I've seen several different makers producing archtop ukes. They certainly look jazzy, but apart from looks, is there a specific sound/tone that can generally be attributed to arched top ukuleles? Are they loud enough unplugged, or are they rather meant to be plugged in?

It just depends on the Archtop. Some sound better acoustic than others and they all have different tones. Typically you will lose some of the low end and gain some in the mid range along with added articulation or note separation. Not necessarily though.
