Barnes & Mullins Tenor 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?
Tenor ukuleles are the largest of the three common sizes of ukulele (soprano, concert, tenor). Tenor ukuleles are often the go-to for professional players and their larger size and inherent playability offer an excellent choice for players wanting to experiment with different playing styles. They perform particularly well in a ukulele duo or trio – occupying the lower frequencies wonderfully.
Their larger size means they deliver a deep, resonant and bass-y tone with excellent volume and can be tuned to high-G (the same as soprano and concert ukes) or low-G where the G string is tuned down one whole octave for a mellower tone.
