While still in the ukulele family, the Baritone ukulele tuning is the same as the top four strings on a guitar D,G,B,E. It also has a larger body and longer scale neck and therefore gets a lower pitched, deeper sound. It is a great transition instrument for guitarist looking to get into ukulele or a perfect companion instrument for the Uke enthusiasts out there.
The 55 series ukuleles feature all Mahogany timbers delivering warm mid range punch and traditional island vibes. Mahogany is probably the one of the most popular choice of tonewood for Ukulele’s backs and sides. Mahogany is a dense wood, with a dark finish, and close grain. Tonally, it has far warmer, darker tone than both Cedar and Spruce.
As a material for back and sides, mahogany’s density can add great ‘punch’ and projection, adding warmth, but with definition, and a ‘woody’ character.
