Cordoba 15CM Concert Ukulele Demo Video

hello after a brief holiday the goatee
ukelele reviews are back and as always
this is just a summary video review
linked below every video is a link to
the original written review where you’ll
get a lot more information there’s also
a link there to the patreon if you want
to help donate to keep this site going
and also one I’ll subscribe to the
ok this brand it’s a brand that featured
before it’s a brand that’s very
well-known in musical instrument circles
they’re a US brand who with the
exception of one or two higher-end
examples mainly make instruments in the
Far East and the perhaps most famous for
their guitars and their Spanish guitars
in particular but they’ve actually made
ukuleles for quite a number of years now
and I know a lot of people have got them
a lot of people who like them the brand
is called Cordoba and this is the
Cordoba 15 cm concert now Cordova I
featured a couple of them before
I’ve never liked what I’ve played I’ve
played a few others as well I found that
they’ve always been a little bit dead
bit heavy that bit sort of constrained
strangled very well made clearly an
instrument maker that knows how to make
an instrument because of their guitar
pedigree but I’ve not been impressed by
their use anyway wanted to have a look
at this one this the 15cm it’s not quite
the lowest level they have a protege
series which i looked at which is their
entry-level but this is their sort of
main level equivalent to sort of
entry-level Karla’s and Lanica eyes and
things like that and in fact that look
it’s a double bat concert shape but it
is very reminiscent of the karla KAC and
the now-discontinued Lanikai el u21
concert because it’s an all laminate
concert body with this creme edge
binding finished and ass at it from a
distance those 3 instruments if they
were played on a stage I suspect people
wouldn’t tell the difference between
them and in fact the construction is
pretty much identical laminate body
couple of pieces on the top couple of
pieces on the sides couple of pieces on
this flat back but it’s laminate
mahogany Cordoba on their website listed
as layered
what is it with brands that have an
aversion to using the word laminate
don’t be afraid of it just tell us what
it is it’s laminate its laminate
mahogany in satin and you know what like
other like although cordobas it’s well
put together it’s really nicely finished
I can’t find any flaws with it at all
the cream really sets it off I think a
difference from the Karluk AAC is that
you get this sound hole rosette in
abalone which is inlaid yeah it’s pretty
but I think it jars I think I’d rather
it was creamed to match the cream or
that the bounding was abalone to match
the sound hole I don’t like mixing
design cues like that minor point of
mine the bridge wood is unspecified it
looks like a stained hardwood to me it
could be Rosewood could be warm it could
be anything really because it’s painted
but it’s a standard tie bar design
holding a composite new bone that color
material flat top saddle it’s in good
shape actually it looks really nice yeah
no problems there at all looking inside
tidy no mess glue shavings that kind of
thing but very basic the back bracing
looks a bit thick the edge the curved
curved things that hold the top and the
back on are not notched I mean they’re
not complaints but it’s just really
simple inside but what it also shows me
is that top is ultra thick now often not
always but often that means it’s going
to strangle the instrument then maybe
that’s been the problem with córdoba’s
in the past but I say not always that
takamina I looked at last had a really
nice resonant tone and actually so this
this is a drum like top despite that
thick top so maybe maybe things will be
ok here the neck is made of mahogany
with a really obvious joints I only
mentioned the joints there’s no problem
with joints in the neck and in fact some
of the very best ukuleles have well
hidden joints I just don’t like them
when they’re really obvious you’ve got
this sort of three-piece stacked heel
here and a horrible joint that’s obvious
they’re finished in the same satin it’s
a really rounded profile it’s that
typical sorry sand profile which I know
I’m not gonna like and I’m not gonna
like it’s gone
reach 35 mil mark 26 from g2 a string
it’s just not for me that kind of I
kinda neck I like them wider and flatter
but it’s fairly standard it’s it’s a
personal point not a lot of criticism
that’s topped in another dark wood
fingerboard maybe rows don’t know what
it is they know specify and it’s nicely
edge span that’s another departure from
the KA see that that’s a nice addition I
think that looks classy I think it looks
nice we’ve got one two three four five
six seven fourteen to the body 15 16 17
18 19 in total and there’s no sharp
edges because of that edge binding
position markers at five seven ten and
twelve and thankfully you get black dots
on the side which you don’t get on their
value protege not my kind of neck but
it’s tidy the headstock it’s the Cordoba
shape that they always use very
reminiscent of Kanna Leia’s shape
actually dare I say called over logo
that in a gold screen print the tuners
Cordoba always use these even on their
higher-end wants their massive buttons
on cheap open gears now horrible they’re
really awful they look ugly as hell
you know the Carla Casey is just smaller
buttons on nicer tuners up there I
believe they’re a real letdown
I think the strings are cui ler no good
you don’t get anything else with it and
the price and RRP of about 135 dollars
but you’ll see them on the street for
about a hundred dollars hundred pounds
in the UK that may sound like a decent
deal for a serious beginner instrument
it might do but I’ll come on to that
price in a towards the end of this video
and I talked about it in the written
review but as I say it’s really well put
together actually it’s it’s nicely
unlike other the córdoba’s is not heavy
it’s nice and light and it’s nice and
balanced as well so there’s a couple of
things that they’ve not done before on
instruments I’ve looked at as I say nice
and resonant I don’t like the neck I
those tuners but other than that it’s
pretty standard and it’s pretty reliable
I think it’ll suit a lot of people and
there was me talking about them sounding
a bit muffled a bit dad a bit strangled
I’m gonna tune that because this is a
newish instrument and the strings are
still going out but what it has is
really good volume you know the volume
the volume as you can probably tell it’s
got a real boom
yeah volume is not a problem here and
the sustain isn’t bad it’s not brilliant
but it’s not bad it’s not totally so
that gives a bit of bit more versatility
to how it will play the tone is generic
it’s a box made of laminate wood and it
also sounds a bit echoing boxy sounding
however it sounds like a huge criticism
because lots of cheap instruments sound
like that as laminate body and
instruments goes I think the tone on
this is up there at the top end it’s got
a nice jangle to it
I just don’t like his neck that’s really
possible first Cordoba I’ve played that
I think now about it’s not gonna change
the world on tone but it’s it works the
setups pretty decent and okay aside from
that net but that’s my big floody hands
it’s a nice shiny tone brighter than I
thought it would be it’s nice
so I know this is aimed at its aim that
either the first time there’s got a bit
more money and decides he really
definitely wants to learn the ukulele or
perhaps a beginner who started out with
some 20 quid junk and says I’ll get it
more serious one and wants to spend
about 100 quid and it’s absolutely right
for those people
my issue though as I touched on earlier
is with the price because in a hundred
pounds you’ve got to look at what the
alternatives are and I look at something
about the Karluk AAC which is pretty
much identical as an instrument it
doesn’t have abalone here it doesn’t
have binding on the neck that’s the only
difference and if you shop around with
the Karla case so you can find it for 75
quid all right by that and pocket the
change and buy myself a packer strings
are coffee rather than 100 pounds on
this because they’re pretty much the
same thing still if you find one of
these on a decent deal or you’ve got one
of these I will not be ashamed of it at
all because as a good as I say serious
beginner instrument it’s it’s it’s
decent it’s a it’s a good little
laminate concert ukulele it’s well-made
it’s well finished it sounds nice it’s
got that cherry tone it’s got a great
volume decently enough sustain and I
suppose hundred quid isn’t isn’t a huge
amount of money so it gets a
recommendation from me but subject to
you just shopping around on prices
because if you can’t get this if you’ve
got this in front of you and a karlik
AAC for 75 quid I’ve got a Carla but if
this is the only thing that’s in your
local shop compared to some other junk
yeah decent instrument
these sorry my voice is going the
Cordoba 15 cm concert yeah not bad at
all really and nice to player Cordoba at
last it I really rather liked I’m back
next week the reviews are going to keep
coming now
no more holidays plan I don’t think till
about Christmas but there we are thank
you for watching and take care of
yourselves I will see you again very
very soon that way

Cordoba Ukuleles

For many, playing a Cordoba ukulele is a dream come true. The high quality materials used for the construction and craftsmanship of this wonderful instrument has made Cordoba a very popular choice in the world of music. When searching for an instrument for your collection, Cordoba is one of the most popular choices, but it should be remembered that just because they are very popular does not mean they are the best.

As with any instrument, the quality of the instrument is determined by several factors. One of these factors is the type of wood being used, specifically, the type of wood used to build the construction of the Cordoba ukulele. The wood used in making the construction of this instrument is mahogany, which is extremely durable. This quality, combined with the fact that it is not susceptible to rotting or warping, has allowed the use of this type of wood to make Cordoba a popular choice.

Another factor that affects the quality of the Cordoba ukulele is the design of the instrument itself. Each piece of this beautiful instrument was designed in such a way that it would create the desired sound. While this sounds quite simple, it is quite easy to get carried away when looking at the beautiful work done by the craftsmanship of each instrument. Each piece of wood used in the construction of each instrument is carved differently to achieve this unique sound.

Another factor that influences the quality of the Cordoba ukulele is the price. While some instruments may have a higher price tag than others, the cost of the instrument does not necessarily reflect the quality of the instrument. While some of the instruments may look as if they have been crafted from very expensive woods, there is usually a lot of craftsmanship that goes into the making of the instrument. The craftsmanship that goes into these pieces of wood also allows them to be made with an artistic look that will definitely appeal to many people.

Finally, the quality of the construction used in the construction of the Cordoba ukulele will depend on the quality of the craftsman that built the instrument. The craftsmen who make the instruments are usually very skilled in their field, and they will be able to achieve the highest quality possible in the construction of the instrument. Many of these craftsmen have taken the time to study how to build an instrument from the ground up, so that the instrument will be able to perform at its best.

It is important to remember that while the Cordoba ukulele may be an extremely popular instrument, it is not always the best. The quality of the instrument is determined by the quality of the materials used and the craftsmanship used.

  1. I’ve been playing guitar for a long time and have a large number of instruments. I own electric, acoustic, classical, and bass guitars, but I had never played the ukulele until recently. After some consideration, I settled on the Cordoba 20 TM-CE Acoustic Electric Tenor as my first ukulele. I’m really pleased with it. First and foremost, it is a very attractive ukulele with a very strong feel to it. Nothing on this seems to be of low quality. I was pleasantly surprised by how sweet it appears. I was quite concerned because this was the first time I had bought an instrument online without first spending any time playing with it. Plus, I knew I’d be having an instrument straight out of the box with no “setup,” which isn’t the best way to get a perfect match. I would still suggest playing an instrument before purchasing it, but I would admit that I was fortunate that it worked out for me this time. To be sure, I’m new to the ukulele, and there’s some getting used to after years of playing guitar, but it’s been a relatively quick transition so far. I’m in love with this thing. I love the sound and couldn’t be happier. There is a learning curve with the different tuning/fret size/action, and I will most likely turn to a low G string, but I am having a great time learning this instrument. There are no strap buttons on this ukulele, so you’ll have to improvise or add one if you want to play with one. If you want to wear a strap, there are kits that are simple to use. If you’re looking for a mid-range ukulele, this appears to be a great value.

  2. Since this is my first ukulele, I have nothing to compare it to. As compared to my other acoustic guitars, the craftsmanship is outstanding. I have a nylon Cordoba acoustic guitar that I enjoy playing. This uke has an excellent finish. It really worked right out of the box. Of course, I had to retune a lot at first because the strings needed to be stretched out slightly, which is natural. The included tuner works flawlessly. I’m still using it to fine-tune my other Cordoba acoustic. This had a perfectly straight jaw. The tuners are well-made and sturdy. The included DVD is excellent for beginners and is well worth a look.

  3. I’ve owned a dozen ukuleles of various sizes, mainly tenors: I sold some, gave some away, and kept one. The Cordoba 15TM tenor is an outstanding uke at an affordable price. Is it perfect? No, I haven’t discovered the ideal tenor ukulele. The Cordoba has an excellent tone and sustain, as well as an appealing, strong structure and finish. But it was the 1 1/2″ “nut,” or width of the top fret, that drew me to this one. There is a ukulele on the market with a 1 3/4″ (1.75″) nut, but it is much too large for me to play comfortably; it is equivalent to the width of a guitar neck/nut.
