This is a gorgeous new instrument from custom builder Luis Feu de Mesquita in Ontario, Canada. It's tuned the same as baritone ukulele D-G-B-E, but has a two inch longer scale and a larger body compared to most baritone ukuleles. The result is a baritone amazingly huge, clear tones and awesome sustain.
Sound sample video and pictures show the exact ukulele available here. Take a listen!
This baritone has incredible exotic tonewoods. The first thing you notice is the superb cut of sinker redwood.
Sides and back are Hormigo. This is from the Tonewood Data Source website,
“The Hormigo is a tree that grows in humid forest zones. It is used commonly to make musical instruments, such as the keys of the marimba. Its wood is reddish with clear pigmentation, it is strong and compacted, durable and beautiful sounding when struck. It grows in Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras. You may be amazed with the beauty of this wood. It is sometimes called “the wood that sings”. Used by Collings Guitars.The knife handle business nearly made it extinct. It’s appearance is similar to Cuban mahogany, but its density, stiffness, and its tone is more like Brazilian.”
The bracing inside though is what you call "lattice". This is a modern classical bracing known for it's strong projection. The voice is both strong and sweet, excellent in projection with a full balance across all frequencies. "Laskin" arm bevel.
Don't miss this opportunity to experience a unique and truly special instrument.
