Barnes & Mullins Tenor Ukulele - Walnut
Barnes & Mullins BMUK5 ukuleles feature beautifully figured Walnut top, back and sides. A dense wood, Walnut delivers a warm and full-bodied tone with excellent low-end character.
The stunning mid brown grain textures of BMUK5 Walnut ukes are further brought to life with an all-over high gloss finish and accentuated with a patterned binding and bevelled edge for extra comfort and aesthetic appeal. A corresponding patterned rosette completes these classy ukuleles.
BMUK5 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.
