If you would like a concert size ukulele with a deep, rich tone, plenty of volume and extremely easy playability, check out this brand new model from San Fransisco company Blackbird. It's the first ukulele made with a plant fiber based composite and it offers exceptionable durability for various environments while also giving an amazing tone. Blackbird calls this material Ekoa and says this regarding this new material:
Ekoa is made up of fiber reinforcement fabric in resin matrix, but one that is worker and planet-friendly. The plant-based fabrics and biobased resins have a beautiful designer material quality, which does not always require finishing along with distinct performance advantages over other composites. Ekoa is suitable for numerous other applications from sports equipment to furniture, but the Clara ukulele, is its debut application.
This model includes a beautiful wood grain style body and planetary tuners from Gotoh that look like traditional friction keys but are geared with a 4:1 ratio. Here is an example of the new Clara in a Low G and High G. They come with a low G unless you make a note in the special instructions for high G.
Our sound samples are recorded for true reference and have no alteration or enhancement. Use quality playback for the most accurate listening.
