We have carried Cordoba for many years, but never have they offered this level of beauty and tone to the ukulele community. We are so happy that the renown guitar and ukulele maker, Pepe Romero Jr., helped them design this new series that offers a true value. This is not a cheap ukulele, but it's an phenomenal value. Here's a video that introduces this new line.

The 30T-CE tenor uke is an extremely lightweight instrument that features the classic combination of a solid mahogany top, back and sides, giving it a warm and balanced sound. It features a soft cutaway and the L.R. Baggs Five.O pickup, a small, lightweight pickup specifically engineered for the ukulele’s unique size and voice. It also has a beautiful rosewood bridge, binding, and fingerboard.  The styling is refined and sleek, using abalone for the inlaid rosette and rosewood for the binding, capped off with Cordoba’s signature elevated headstock with a figured acacia overlay. The finish is a hand-rubbed polyurethane, applied as thin as possible for maximum resonance. Other features include a black TUSQ® nut and saddle, chrome Grover tuners, and a Cordoba polyfoam case.

In this demo we hear it first completely acoustic and dry and then we hear it plugged in. The sound plugged in, of course, can be adjusted to your liking. 

So the amazing thing is that the entire 30 series was dropped in price just recently. This cost close to what you would have paid previously but without a cutaway and without a truly great pickup (the one most of us here would take over anything!) 

These are beautiful in design but primarily built for optimal tone. They were built in a completely different way from the regular line of Cordoba ukuleles. Here is what Cordoba says about that -

The new 30 series, a premium line of boutique, all-solid tenor ukuleles approached from a classical or Spanish guitar building perspective. Most notably, Cordoba is using an integrated neck joint or “Spanish Heel” instead of a traditional dovetail joint to join the body and neck of the ukulele. This method of construction offers a lighter weight and more stable heel joint that increases resonance and is less prone to movement as the ukulele ages.

This ukulele sounds awesome! It also looks beautiful with great craftsmanship. And our final setup work makes them feel as great as they look and sound. Get one now and experience it yourself!

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 ukulele includes a very nice Cordoba hard case made just for it.

Included is the Herco Humidifier, but we offer the option to upgrade to the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18) at a discount. This is suggested if you live in a low humidity area.(parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc..) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you are heating the air most of the day and night. For more info see our Ukulele Care page

This comes from the factory with a Low G as you hear it in the video demo. It also sounds great with a high G and that is an option below. For more info see our blog article High or Low G?

The end jack acts as a strap button but you can add a second strap button to the heel by going HERE
