Every year I aim to bring something new to the Noah range and for 2021, the model I’ve added is the Noah Super Tenor.
Your first question might be what exactly is a Super Tenor? Well, the Noah Super Tenor has a standard tenor neck with a scale length of 17 inches, but has a larger baritone-sized body. The advantage of this is that you get a lovely, richer sound with added depth, but you still retain the GCEA standard ukulele tuning.
In terms of woods, this ukulele has that classic combination of mahogany back and sides with a spruce top. Other features include a slotted headstock, pin bridge and wider nut width of 39mm. It has a gloss finish to the body, but the neck has a satin finish which feels very smooth and comfortable. There is an abalone inlay around the soundhole and also more abalone paired with Indian rosewood for the edge binding.
This model was reviewed on Got A Ukulele in October 2021 and received the highest score yet of any Noah instrument. You can watch the YouTube review below and click here to read the full website review.

Well I have my super tenor. And it is super.
The jangle of a uke ( when needed) added to the depth, the shimmer and the sustain of a baritone, all with the neck length of a tenor . The sound positively rings . I have kept it high G as I have a baritone and a very high end tenor . This uke combines the best of both and , come on, an all solid , handmade uke for under £300? My second Noah uke for the best of reasons

I’ve now had my new Noah Super Tenor for about 3 weeks now and well worth the wait from placing my order, WOW, I love it, this one was my 2nd Uke from Matt, the first being the Noah Monkypod Tenor which again is just awesome and a joy to play, but different to the Super Tenor, with the Super Tenor the neck is slightly thicker in depth and the sound due to the baritone body, I usually play them both on a session. So what’s next ? Well Defiantly another Noah, I do fancy one with a cutout, lets see what Matt brings with him to The GNUF !!

I received my Noah Super Tenor Ukulele last week as an early birthday present to myself. It arrived really quickly and was well packaged. It is a gorgeous looking instrument that plays beautifully with a deep rich tone. The finish is excellent with no sharp fret wires sticking out and lovely abalone trim. I am blown away by the quality of this instrument for the price I paid and so tempted to buy another ukulele from the Noah range but in the meantime I’ll just enjoy the Super Tenor.

I’m a novice at playing a ukulele and with no musical experience started with a Soprano 6 months ago, I’m absolutely hooked and decided to go for an upgrade on my current uke. Ordered the Noah Super Tenor and so pleased with it, delivery was quick just a few days the Super Tenor looks beautiful and feels great. I cannot fault it at all and now practicing every spare minute to do it justice.

I’ m a guitar player and was looking for an easy transition to ukulele. The Super Tenor fits the bill nicely. It looks fantastic, sounds mellow but still bright and crisp. Very pleased with my purchase as the instrument clearly is of high quality, The service from Matt was friendly and professional.
