Details

Baritone ukes are very of the moment. We are finding that more and more of our customers are adding a Baritone to their collection - something about its rich warmth makes it really compelling. This new model from Pono offers all of the bass richness associated with a large Baritone but with the added zing of steel strings. So you can create a really different sound and feel with this instrument than you can with a nylon strung Baritone ukulele - more akin to an acoustic guitar but without the two bass strings. But to think of it just as a cut down guitar is to do it a disservice - it has a beautiful, bluesy character all of its own. And when you play up the neck you appreciate the extra glitter that the steel strings give you.

In the hand you really have to appreciate the craftsmanship of the clever guys at Pono - it is flawlessly well made, with a very light but incredibly solid body (which is where the impressive sustain and volume come from) and the neck feels very playable and easy.

A complete winner!
