Blackbird Tenor Ukulele

By Blackbird

$ 1,595.00
On tour from Hawaii, the Ukulele first gained widespread recognition among stateside music fans at the 1915 Panama Pacific International Expo in San Francisco. Down-the-road and nearly a century later Blackbird Guitars is giving the Ukulele a 2010 reinvention with their proprietary hollow-neck, all-carbon fiber construction. This exceptionally loud and tonally rich instrument is as responsive as it is resilient and will inspire ukulele players to bring their music places no nice wood instrument should ever go—like the beach. The Blackbird Ukulele sets a new bar for a compact, lightweight, and tonally-satisfying travel instrument that is durable and immune to the humidity problems that impact its wooden counterparts.

The Mi-Si rechargeable system is really astounding, and puts the travel capabilities of this guitar over the top. Just 60 seconds of charging the battery gives you 16 hours of power. How cool is that? Never change that 9v battery again.
