Tanglewood are known as one of Britain's leading guitar makers, and their wide range of ukuleles are testament to their high standards as guitar craftspeople. The company began towards the end of the 20th century, and they have always been very intelligent in their approach to constructing their instruments, drawing from traditional techniques whilst always having one eye on how to push forward and innovate. The result is an exciting collection of Tanglewood ukuleles that give musicians of all levels an extra boost of inspiration and energy.
Tanglewood's soprano sized ukulele's will be great for players of all experience levels. If you are picking the instrument up for the first time, you will find the shape intuitively playable, and the tone immediately pleasing to the ear. If you have been playing for many years, you will still find the Tanglewood's soprano ukuleles impressive in the sweetness, liveliness and charismatic quality of the sound. Made with authentic Hawaiian tone woods, these sparkling gems can't help but create a joyful feeling to both the player and listener.
Tanglewood ukuleles are known for their full sound, and this in no small part comes down to the quality of the Koa, Spruce, Mahogony and Okoume used across different models. The choice of high quality sourced wood, and the expert treatment of it, all leads to a deep, rich and layered sound. This in turn makes these ukuleles ideal for performance, as well as recording. Expect a mixture of brightness with a surprising power. Many of the concert sized ukuleles also come in Tanglewood's now legendary natural satin finish.
There are also some top quality Tangelwood electro and electro acoustic ukuleles from which to choose. These are ideal for those who want to perform live and need to crank up the volume. The wood used and the construction quality is such that you won't lose any of the character and tone from the ukulele. But you will be able to unlock a whole host of electric capabilities with plug in and play functionality. For the best of both worlds, we recommend the player-friendly, stylish tenor electro acoustic hybrids.
