Petros Custom Quilted Redwood Koa Tenor #33

Availability: Out of stock



Since 1972, Bruce Petros has been building unique, custom, handmade instruments for discerning players and collectors. Matthew Petros has been building alongside his father since the year 2000. Building on a 40 year legacy of guitar making, they began building Ukuleles in 2012 and have fallen in love with the instrument, the people and the process.

In this first video Corey samples this uke with the Ko'olau Aho Fluorocarbon set. In the second video, he samples it with Ko'olau Alohi nylon strings. 

Just this year we have experienced the amazing quality and tone Petros is producing with his tenors. I think you can see and hear we have been so impressed. 

This one features awesome tonewoods like a Curly Sinker Redwood top and 5A Hawaiian Curly Koa along the sides and back. This is a very lightweight instrument, very resonant, and filled with beautiful artistic design. We think you're gonna love this ukulele!

Pictures and video show the exact instrument now available! Includes Oahu Fiberglass Hardshell Case and Oasis Humidifier.

Additional Information

Slothead Tenor

I love the functionality and feel of slot heads. With the fatter rollers, the Ukulele strings tune more quickly and accurately just like a fine classical guitar. You don’t see this very often. The Butternut neck makes for a very light weight instrument that is very balanced. The rest of the Uke speaks for itself.
