This electro bass ukulele by Blackwater really is a stand out instrument! Utilising less common tonewoods, in this case, Butterfly Wood, the sound is original and impressive. With the top, back and sides crafted out of Butterfly Wood, the tone is incredibly warm, but with a surprising amount of clarity. With a slight boost in the upper mid ranges, this bass ukulele can cut through noise with an impressive amount of ease, while projecting the bass tones you want from it! Partnered with a mahogany neck which adds in a layer of richness, this ukulele is full of character. The strings are interesting to note, as they are not the traditional polyurethane or silicone rubber you would expect. Made out of a special plastic compound by Aguila Strings, the 'Thundergut Strings' perform brilliantly, resonating full of the spectral range, while remaining consistent in tuning and with an unbelievable sustain. This is particularly amazing on an instrument of this size. Wonderfully, you will not be restricted to acoustic performances with this ukulele as it is equipped with a clean sounding preamp, with a 3-band EQ to allow you to control the tone to be suited for the setting!
