Details

We're really excited to bring you these Millar ukuleles. The Millar TK-240W all solid Cypress and rosewood concert ukulele is a real stunner and an absolute breath of fresh air... I saw this range of ukuleles for the first time earlier in the year and muttered to myself 'where have you been all my life?'.

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 below and 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-240W brings the warm, responsive and seasoned sound of Cypress (a wood very similar to Cedar) to the ukulele whilst the rosewood adds some gravitas and volume to the overall sound... This ukulele is a fingerpicker's dream with a more touch 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. If you play in a group and want to hear yourself for example; this ukulele does more to help you stand out at the forefront of the mix.

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 cypress top and the deep richer rosewood.

Pictures show actual instrument. This one arrived with a mark to the top (see pics) so if being offered at the reduced price of £500.
