The Blackbird Farallon ukulele takes its name from the islands off the coast of San Francisco and we love them! The Farallon is the first tenor crafted from ekoa which gives a powerful, vintage tone.

Plus, this instrument comes with a whole range of special features as standard. You get aluminium side dots on the neck, a radiused fretboard and Blackbird's new satin finish at cost.

We love it so much, it gets to sit at the top table with
tenor ukuleles from other specialist manufacturers.
