It has Aquila String fitted and is tuned g~C~E~A

I have tried it with a D tuning but it didn't help the volume issue

D&D UK-44S

I got this Ukulele from e-Bay mainly because I knew the D&D were a Hawaiian Manufacturer and I wanted a Genuine Hawaiian Ukulele. No one else was bidding so it was a bit of a bargain. It is a lovely bit of sugar mahogany, ("guaranteed air dried for at least 5 years" it says on the label), and beautifully finished. The odd thing about it though is the thickness of the Body? It's at least half as thick again as any of the other Soprano's, as you can see from the side view, and I don't know if its for this reason or because of the soundboard, (My Lâg is also a bit quiet), but it does lack acoustic volume.

D&D appear to have stopped trading in the first quarter of 2009 (which is when mine is dated as being produced) I know when they were trading that the luthier behind the name was a chap called Edmund "Nice" Baccani and the D & D stands for Daniel and Doris, the people who owned the shop selling them
