Blackbird Farallon Tenor Ukulele Ekoa MiSi Pickup Top Dots and Side Soundport
Named for the Islands off the coast of San Francisco, Farallon is the first tenor crafted from Ekoa, a high-performance material made of natural linen fiber and bioresin.
Farallon's unique soundboard is lighter than wood and tuned for a powerful vintage tone. This ecological composite is structurally superior to vintage old-growth wood, and is temperature and humidity stable. The rugged hollow neck one-piece structure enhances projection providing you with unmatched dynamics and the ultimate playing experience.
This model has the optional cost upgrades of the aluminium top dots on the fretboard, the MiSi Ukulele Trio rechargeable pickup and the side sound port that opens up the possibilities for the player no end - the player can finally hear just how wonderful this instrument sounds to the audience!
This beauty resonates quite like no other ukulele we have ever played. It is clean, crisp with very distinct highs and lows. This instrument sits at the top table with all of the tenors from other specialist ukulele manufacturers. You really outdid yourselves Blackbird - well done.
