Availability: In stock



New Farallon Tenor Package

If you would like a tenor 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 proprietary material Ekoa and says this regarding the 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, with distinct performance advantages over other composites.

This model has the planetary tuners from Gotoh that look like traditional friction keys but are geared with a 4:1 ratio. This one came with a high G, but if you like, make a note in the special instructions for a low G setup.

Right now this incredible new tenor is only made at a boutique production level, so don't hesitate to add this road-ready ukulele to your collection!

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 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 Accessories tab you can also customize this instrument by adding a MiSi 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.
