Do you really know your ukulele?
When buying a ukulele there are many common questions such as what material is this? (Leaving aside the plastic ones), the specific and stellar question would be what wood is it made of? Without more turns we will tell you how they are made.
Normally the super cheap ukuleles are made of pine but it depends what kind of pine we are using. Spruce is a species of pine that is used mostly in the tops (front) of the ukulele since it has an acute resonance and sustain. This wood is a little difficult to achieve, so it increases its value. If you find one with Fir, don't let it go!
Ebony wood is commonly used for tuning for guitars and ukuleles because of its dark color. Also for its porosity it has a very good resonance, especially the Green Ebony. It is not very economical but for its aesthetics and unique resonance it is a good candidate for your collection.
Mahogany is the most common wood used to manufacture these instruments. either in its Solid or Laminated presentation, they will have a spectacular resonance. The difference is that laminated mahogany usually has more high-pitched sounds and solid mahogany goes more towards the bass having a sharper sound.
Ovangkol is an exotic wood that is very easy to work, but difficult to find and export. It mainly grows in Africa and is used for fine furniture as well as for guitars and ukuleles. It is too durable, even against insects. Once dry it is difficult for it to absorb moisture.
First of all we have Koa Wood. Koa is an endemic tree of Hawaii and has a beautiful appearance. This wood is becoming more than exotic, so it raises its price. Besides, its loudness is sweeter than other wood used for a ukulele. Not for nothing, Ukulele, Koa and Hawaii go hand in hand.
Now if we have left some woods such as Ziricote, Maple, Encino, Oak, etc. It is because we will dedicate a special blog to these woods with special characteristics. Leave us your comment with your doubts and also if you want to find such a ukulele and do not know where to start looking.
