BMUK9T Spalt Maple Tenor Ukulele
A naturally uniquely-patterned Tenor Ukulele with a lively sound.
BMUK9 ukuleles are made from Spalted Maple tonewoods. This visually beautiful and distinctive tonewood has light peach colouring interspersed with darkly feathered grain textures. Each instrument will be truly personal to you as each piece of tonewood will be endowed with its own unique pattern.
Tonally, the larger-bodied tenor ukuleles deliver a tone similar to their Concert siblings: bright and lively with a very tight low-end and crystal-clear high frequencies. However, their additional body volume nudges up the low-mid frequency reponse adding more overall depth.
Each of these maple ukes is finished with a satin patina all-over and complemented with patterned binding and a bevelled arm rest for additional comfort and visual appeal. A corresponding patterned rosette completes these striking ukuleles.
BMUK9 ukuleles feature strap buttons for attaching a ukulele strap.
Common tenor ukulele tuning: G, C, E, A – ‘Reentrant’ ukulele tuning
Why should I buy a tenor ukulele?
The ukulele is one of the easier string instruments to play – and certainly one of the most fun. However, before you buy your uke, you may be slightly confused about the different types available.
Here's some further information to help you out...
What size ukulele should I buy?
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.
