Details

From the moment you pick up the Millar TK-260W, you'll never want to put it down again. The all solid cypress/rosewood tenor ukulele comes with a slotted headstock and is a real breath of fresh air.

Built in Taiwan, this budding, family run workshop of builders are producing ukuleles that push the limits of what kind of quality you can expect to get at this price. The feel and looks of these instruments are reminiscent of Pono, Big Island and Imua ukuleles. Both the wood chosen and clean attention to detail is a noticeable step or two up from ukuleles in the price category. This tenor sits very comfortably as an affordable alternative to the Rebels and Opios of this world. Yellow Cypress is a Taiwanese sibling to the more common Cedar tonewood... Cypress has practically an identical tone to Cedar wood but a slightly wavier looking grain pattern. The jury is out on whether here in the west we should describe this wood as Cedar or Cypress so forgive us for using both terms in these listings.

The TK-260W brings the warm, responsive and seasoned sound of cypress to the ukulele whilst the rosewood adds some gravitas and volume to the overall sound. This tenor ukulele is a dream for players who like to finger pick. It has a sensitive response to your touch and an almost classical guitar tonality. If you were to strum the sound is quick and clean off of the fingerboard with just a touch of bite and saturation. Playing in a group is easy too, as this ukulele really helps you stand out in the mix.

The slotted headstock is gorgeous with those antique open back machine heads and cream buttons. I don't know about you but I personally am a sucker for the rope binding and curly maple trim. It really stands out against the fiery colour palette of the dark orange top and the deep richer rosewood.
