Barron River Concert Spruce Australian Blackwood

Barron River Concert Spruce Australian Blackwood

Availability: Out of stock



Barron River ukuleles are made by Allen McFarlen in Cairns, Australia. We were originally impressed by his soprano and this concert exceeded them again. This one has a beautiful bearclaw spruce top, Australian blackwood sides, back, and neck. Fret board, peg head veneers, and bindings are all gidgee, and Australian hardwood known for it's stability. Fret markers are Huon Pine, a Tasmanian wood. So Allen is using local sources and this a wonderful concert ukulele that sounds fantastic. Take a listen.

Our sound samples are recorded for true reference and have no alteration or enhancement. Use quality playback for the most accurate listening.

This custom concert has some upgrades including the figure wood and gloss finish.The back and sides are made of Tasmanian blackwood, an acacia wood species that’s a close cousin of Hawaiian koa. It has a a fairly slim neck profile with low action and great playability. 

Includes a canvas covered hard case and Herco humidifier. Both are upgradable in the options.

Setup Options

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

Extra Options

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360 included humidifier for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your home. For more info refer to the Ukulele Care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

After adding this instrument to your cart, you can still create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

Under the Accessories tab you can also customize this instrument by adding strap button(s) or your choice of pickup for plugging in. We recommend either the MiSi or the LR Baggs pickup for this ukulele.  

This qualifies for free shipping (USPS Express International or FedEX 2 day within the USA). Two days is the time in transit. Your instrument will first go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money. For more information on our setup process, turnaround time, shipping, and return policies, refer to the links below in our footer.

Put a note in the Special Instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything.
