Product Description

A marvelous twist of fate brought us this wonderful batch of spalted flamed maple wood for these beautiful ukuleles. The amazing spalt patterns in this wood are incredibly intricate. We have paired up with a solid sitka spruce top and mahogany binding on the back and sides of these lovely ukuleles. They have a synthetic bone nut and saddle, custom amber tuners, solid mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The sound is clear and bright with great projection.

I just tried one of these in Hawaii, although they're made in China and imported through California. The maple body (combined with a solid spruce top) gives an unusually delicate tone. The notes flutter by, a bit like a harpsichord's.

As in the usual trade-off between maple versus mahogany tonewoods, you sacrifice a bit of punch in the lower range. But in exchange, you get an unusually shimmering tone.

Got this for my girlfriend for Christmas, and she loved it! I can't play a thing, but when she played it had a very beautiful sound. Not like the cheap stuff you find in cardboard boxes in music stores stacked up to the ceiling. Couldn't be happier with the product, or how well the company packaged the item.

This uke sounds great, and the spalted maple is very pretty. It's easy to play. the spruce top gives it a very crisp almost "twangy" sound. It's well made, without the high price tag. although, probably a little more expensive than the absolute beginner would want to shell out. Overall, beautiful uke.
