This is from a small exclusive run of Blackbird Tenors with a lacquer high gloss finish. The Farallon is one of the finest tenors in sound and feel, but never before have they looked so beautiful with this professional glassy finish over a vintage sunburst. This model also includes the Misi active pickup which has a unique rechargeable preamp. This gives you excellent amplification for live or recording purposes.

If you would like a tenor size ukulele with a deep, rich tone, plenty of volume and great playability, this Farallon is a great choice! Joe and the Blackbird team there in San Fransisco have designed the first plant fiber based composite stringed instruments. It's a much more renewable resource and offers better durability than wood in various humidities. Most prominently, it has 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.
Comes with light weight planetary tuners from Gotoh that look like traditional friction keys but are geared with a 4:1 ratio. Also includes Blackbird Reunion Blues gig bag & our final 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!
