Barnes & Mullins Concert Ukulele - Spalt Maple
Barnes & Mullins BMUK9 ukuleles use all-Spalt Maple tonewoods. A beautiful and distinctive tonewood with a light peach colouring interspersed with dark feathered grain textures, each piece of wood naturally produces its own unique pattern – meaning your BMUK9 will be truly personal to you.
Tonally, these ukuleles deliver a bright, lively sound with a very tight low-end and crystal-clear high frequencies.
Complete with an all-over satin finish and accentuated with a patterned binding and bevelled edge for extra comfort and aesthetic appeal. A corresponding patterned rosette completes these striking ukuleles.
BMUK9 ukuleles feature strap buttons for attaching a ukulele strap.
Who is this ukulele for?
Concert ukuleles are the second largest of the three common sizes of ukulele (soprano, concert, tenor). Their size offers a good compromise between smaller soprano and larger tenor ukuleles.
They feature a larger fret spacing and slightly wider neck than their soprano brethren – meaning they're easy to play as they there's more space on the fingerboard to master the chord shapes. The concert size is a great choice for players of any experience or skill level.
Their larger body means they naturally produce a full sound and warm tone with more mid-range emphasis than the soprano. They're therefore excellent accompaniment ukuleles that blend well alongside other instruments.
