New Farallon Tenor Package w/ Upgrades - Side Sound Port & Aluminum Fretboard Dots
If you would like a tenor size ukulele with a deep, rich tone, plenty of volume and great 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.
It comes with lightweight planetary tuners from Gotoh that look like traditional friction keys but are geared with a 4:1 ratio. They come with a low G unless you make a note in the special instructions for high G. Below is a video with both low and high G. It also has a side sound port giving extra "openness" to the tone and increases the volume to the player.

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!
