The Redwood S40 soprano ukulele is an excellent model that combines the finest materials and appointments, to create an instrument that is perfect for intermediate/advanced players, gigging musicians and professionals.
The body back and sides are crafted using from laminated rosewood, a dense tonewood that is noted for its rich tonality and solid power. Rosewood offers greater emphasis on mid to low-end power, which gives the S40 a warm timbre. The body top is built from solid spruce, which is a highly resonant tonewood that projects the timbre of the tonewoods with ease, giving the S40 a healthy dynamic range. The laminated rosewood is better equipped when it comes to handling changes in humidity and temperature, which means this model would make an excellent travelling companion. ABS black/white binding and ivory purfling, protects the edges from unwanted chips and nicks, as well as supporting the top from buckling or warping.
Attached to the body is a sturdy neck that is married to a gorgeous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 12 spacious frets that provide a wonderful playing surface to navigate your fingers along, guided by the dot position inlays.
Rosewood has been used in the construction of the bridge, due to its tough and resilient nature. By providing a seamless connection between strings and body, the bridge creates a reassuringly secure playing feel. The nut supports the strings at the head to improve string tension, and therefore, sustain and intonation. The tuners uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision. The tonewoods have been finished with a slender and protective gloss, which allows the natural beauty of the spruce to be displayed proudly.
If you're looking for a fantastic sounding ukulele that has a unique, bright character, is very comfortable to play and travels well, then the Redwood S40 soprano ukulele would make a fantastic addition to your live arsenal.
