Details

The discerning baritone ukulele user will immediately spot that this all solid spruce top and ovangkol Uluru is a real winner. It is punchy when strummed whilst still offering a lot of weight to each note you play. There is no muddiness here. Just an effective, rich and luxurious feeling baritone ukulele capable of holding down the baritone register perfectly.

The 35mm nut width and ebony fingerboard and bridge offer the player a familiar ukulele feel with a slender neck profile - like the established and super popular Pono baritones. The ukulele feels lighter tension than many other baritones with a less common 20.15 inch scale length. This is about 2/3 of an inch shorter than most other commonplace baritones but I am convinced this shorter scale length makes the instrument feel less stiff and snappy than other baritones.

The ukulele has a greater projection and clarity than the more affordable Kala/Ohana baritones in the price range below and I do not hesitate in suggesting these ukuleles sit closer in quality and overall presentation to the £1000+ Kanile'a baritone ukuleles. High praise indeed and well deserved at that.

We’re really excited to be able to bring these Uluru baritone ukuleles to you. 2020 has brought a shortage of baritone ukuleles even from the usual big players like Kala, Ohana and Pono and at the high end Kanile'a and Kamaka. Baritones bring warmer tones, great sustain, bass and depth of sound, so we’re always surprised there aren’t more of these incredible instruments out there.

We were chatting to was Matt at World of Ukes in Carlisle and decided we needed to find a company that offered a middling baritone uke. Before we knew it - we were chanting 'Make Baritones Great Again' and Uluru were happy to oblige having worked closely with Matt on his own range of Lehua Ukuleles earlier in the year. It took us a while to get there but the resulting ukuleles are the Uluru Hoa-Hana series. Hoa Hana means partnership or collaboration in Hawaiian which seems fitting given the mutual love between SUS and WOU.

The listing shows a typical example. Please get in touch to see photos of our current stock.
