Barnes & Mullins Concert Ukulele - Spruce
Barnes & Mullins BMUK6 ukuleles feature solid Spruce tops and Mahogany back and sides with an all-over satin finish.
Being a strong softwood, solid Spruce makes for a bright and clear tonewood that - when matched with Mahogany on these BMUK6 ukuleles - delivers a balanced and crisp tone with just the right amount of warmth. BMUK6 ukuleles excel across all frequency ranges, occupying the high, mid and low registers with poise and a unique character of their own.
Complete with a lightly coloured wood binding and mother of pearl rosette, Barnes & Mullins BMUK6 ukes have a stripped back traditional charm and universal appeal.
BMUK6 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.
