Is a plastic ukulele good to hear?

Aloha Ukulelists!

Have you seen these amazing plastic ukuleles, very original transparent, or with very colorful designs?
Well, sure as it is out of the traditional ukulele, you wonder how it sounds?

IF YOU LISTEN WELL!

We know that wooden instruments sound super cute just for that, because the wood and its pores let the sound come out in a soft way.
To my taste and it seems, they preserve the traditional sound very well, that is, with these 3 characteristics:

1. The sound is opaque.
that is, it can be heard as when you speak, and put your hand in your mouth,

Do you notice how the sound changes? I feel like plastic ukuleles are just the same.

2. The sound is slightly lower.
thanks to its plastic case it makes the sound have the characteristic of being more serious compared to a traditional wooden ukulele

3. It can be shorter.
it is usually heard as quieter compared to a wooden ukulele, for the same reason that the sound only comes out of the mouth of the ukulele.

A plastic ukulele can be a perfect ukulele to start with, and as you fine-tune your techniques and hearing, you'll be ready to jump on a wooden ukulele if you wish.

You can listen here a video of these plastic ukuleles, with strums and songs that we made especially for TEST YOUR SOUND
