The Fender T-Bucket Ukulele is another great addition to the Fender non-guitar catalogue that takes inspiration from the brand’s guitar models. The humble uke has enjoyed something of a renaissance of late. Nowadays, it is respected as a great folk instrument, and one that can add a great deal of unique character to your musical project. The Fender T-Bucket uke is a stunning option in this regard.
Taking its inspiration from Fender’s very popular T-Bucket acoustic guitar line, this new model is a visual treat. The hollow, single cutaway, body is constructed with a flame-maple top, and mahogany back and sides. This is a classic tone-wood combination, with provides a sweet, lively upper frequencies with warm low frequencies and defined mid-range. Inside, the body is constructed with fan bracing.
The neck is also a mahogany construction, with 17” scale length, ‘U’ profile, rosewood fingerboard and bone nut, with a rosewood bridge and compensated bone saddle at the other end of the instrument.
The electronics equipped to the T-Bucket uke are surprisingly hi-tech. A Fishman Kula pre-amp and pickup system is fitted, allowing the Ukulele to be connected to an amplifier or PA system. This, very conveniently, has a built-in tuner, too. Those who intend to incorporate a Ukulele into their live performances will enjoy the convenience, and the excellent tone delivered by this system.
Beside this, however, is a mini-USB connection. This allows the player to connect the uke to a smart phone, tablet or computer to record directly into computer software. This is an unprecedented technological touch for a ukulele, and makes the process of capturing performances within computer software a very straightforward process.
The Fender T-Bucket Ukulele is beautiful instrument with great tone, but with features that will please both the live performer, and those recording their performances.
