Barnes & Mullins Tenor 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?
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.
