Details

What an extraordinary instrument. This is basically a tenor guitar slightly modified to take nylon strings instead of steel in Baritone ukulele DGBE tuning, and it sounds absolutely wonderful! Imagine the biggest, best and most mellow sounding Baritone that you have heard, add more volume, sustain, precise intonation and crisper note definition and you might be half way there. Tenor Guitar enthusiasts need not worry though as this instrument can still be restrung with strings we sell in store to accommodate Tenor Guitar/Banjo tuning.

This model is made of all solid acacia, which produces a more chiming, harp-like sound with more pronounced mids than the spruce models, which tend to be a little bassier. In the treble range, the sound is extremely crisp and clear, and you can hear the harmonics coming through in the sound really clearly. And when you strum hard and explore the bass range, there is real warmth but no muddiness - you can really hear all the individual notes in the chords very clearly, and they all sustain very evenly with a beautiful decay.

If you were wondering which of the BN series might suit you best, this will help:

The BN-10 in solid acacia is brighter sounding, with a decent midrange bite - sounds wonderful for blues
The BN-20 is full, rounded and warmer, great for jazz and strumming
The BN-30 is full, crisp and a little sprightlier in the treble than the BN-20 - a great all rounder
