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.
This custom tenor is light in weight and with a resonance that will astound you. The top is Englemann spruce which is known for its warm bass response and great projection. Tonally, Englemann falls between European spruce and cedar, and it pairs wonderfully with this striking Macassar ebony.
Tonewood database says " Macassar boasts a lot of presence and is typically clear and loud with a broad dynamic range. It seems to be a wood that is uniquely responsive to different playing styles. It has a strong bass and lower mids; clear and transparent highs that respond like an accelerator pedal as you move your right hand closer to the bridge and dig in a bit; and a slightly scooped midrange. Tons of sustain, good projection." This wood combo in the hands of a master luthier makes for a truly special instrument you see here.
Bound with flamed maple and adorned with wood and inlays, this tenor is truly an ultimate experience for those looking for the finest in feel, look, and sound. Other noteworthy features include: Buffalo bone nut, saddle, and etched bone bridge cover, custom Rubner tuners, and an etched maple end pin.
We absolutely love this instrument and we think you will too!
