SOLID WOOD UKULELE: The Spruce and Ebony Combination.

Spruce is known for its clarity, dynamic range, and response while ebony provides a strong bass presence and responsive highs for a well-rounded sound profile.

Solid wood is the most resonant and pure form of the tone-wood and requires much more finesse to install properly. Solid woods age with time producing a better sound year after year as the wood dries out.  The seasoned wood is stiffer and vibrates with greater volume clarity and tone. It is somewhat delicate in comparison to laminate wood but is highly sought after.

Spruce has been one of the most common tone-woods on acoustic guitars for decades and it’s no surprise it has found its way into the hearts of uke players as well. There are many variances in Spruce wood strains but it is usually favoured for its well-rounded properties that suit a wide range of playing styles.

The Spruce wood is very stiff and relatively light which makes it great for full-on strumming and quite responsive to delicate fingerpicking. The sound is bright, full, and all-around probably familiar to most. It has a very recognisable look that can best be described as a light blonde colour that yellows with age.

Ebony is a dense black/brown hardwood, most commonly yielded by several different species in the genus Diospyros, which also contains the persimmons. Ebony is dense enough to sink in water. It is finely textured and has a mirror finish when polished, making it valuable as an ornamental wood.

Ebony colouration is dark brown to black, with brown streaks. Tonally, ebony is powerful, clear, and has a dark tonality adding power to bass response.  Clear, responsive highs and a slightly scooped midrange. A slightly longer period of playing time to open up as the wood dries and the tone really blossoms.  Strong and hard, ebony is a great choice for backs and sides.

The elegant, Solid Spruce Top Striped Ebony in Tenor has everything: excellent tonewoods, well thought out appointments, ornate herringbone rosette, and purfling framed in Mahogany binding – to give it that extra something, something.

Spruce is known for its clarity and is consistent, balanced, and has great response, while Ebony provides a strong bass presence and responsive highs for a well-rounded sound profile.

This ukulele has a broad dynamic range that works well for both strumming and fingerpicking.
