Tanglewood TUJ5 – ukulele review in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the July issue of the magazine features a review of Tanglewood TUJ5 ukulele. The instrument was delivered for review by Tanglewood distributor in Poland, Zibi.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Krzysztof Blas:

“Tanglewood TUJ5 is extremely comfortable. Thanks to smooth neck, low string action and light weight, playing it is easy and fun. What is most important, the factory setup provides perfect intonation, so you can confidently use the whole range of the fretboard.”

“TUJ5 speaks with very resonant, warm and penetrating sound, keeping up with smaller constructions in terms of loudness. The amount of air and attack in the whole tone is amazing. This is just how a Koa instrument should sound like – bright, with strong mids and clear highs.”

“Tanglewood TUJ5 is a perfectly designed and crafted instrument – it has everything you would expect from a ukulele. A very successful model which will definitely appeal not only to those beginning their journey with this instrument, but also to professional musicians who want to broaden their tonal palette.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
