Thread Name: Bouzouki - What brand is best?
Subject: RE: Bouzouki - What brand is best?
John Hullah doesn't make bouzouki's anymore, but as it happens I'm selling mine as I've ordered a Foley for sometime next year. It's a Deluxe model from 1995 and very nice sounding, mahogany back. sides and neck and Applewood soundboard. A snip at £900!
In truth, I'd rather keep it but cash is short at hand at the moment and when I ordered the Foley I was anticipating a better year for my business : (
If it's a cheapie, then I'd have a look at Troubadour Instruments. David is a great guy and his instruments are excellent value for money, although benefit from a little setup work.
Alec Finn actually uses a 3-course bowl-backed Greek bouzouki so I would go with what you feel like!
