UKULELE’S: B8 – 8 STRING TENOR UKULELE
We usually construct our ukuleles from Japanese Cherry for the back, sides and 3-piece neck. This provides a well-rounded sound that appeals to a great number of our clients. But there are times when a brighter sound is required and this is what our client was looking for. So to produce this bright sound and visuals we used Cedar for the top and Birds-Eye Maple for the fingerboard. This was blended with the addition of twin paired strings, the top two pairs the same and the bottom two in octaves. In order to produce the bright vibrant sound and to get the best out of the Cedar top we provided very precise and tight bracing pattern.
Aesthetically we included red binding combined with faux tortoise shell binding for a warm rich look and feel. We also integrated a small Atlantic Ocean find into the bridge. The slotted headstock gave a classical look to the instrument and helped balance the weight of 8 machine heads and they are set off with Red Coloured Abalone inlay.
Should our client wish to integrate a B-Band Preamp and Pick system we have already thought ahead and allowed for most types of systems in our bracing and body sides. So an upgrade is a simple and easy option.
