Description

Details

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 new model for 2018 includes, the new more beautiful wood grain style body and a newly braced top, upgraded finish, the 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.

DLX GIGBAG & HMS FINAL SETUP ARE INCLUDED

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.

This includes the deluxe gig bag.

This instrument does not require a dehumidifier like other high end ukes.

* Put a note in the Special Instructions if you would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything (e.g., “Please setup high G”).  

* Under the options here you can also customize this instrument by adding a MiSi or LR Baggs pickup for plugging in.

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

Aloha!
