Outstanding build quality
Tanglewood have gained a justified reputation for building instruments that not only look fantastic, but offer a reassuringly sturdy feel and resilient performance. The Tiare TWT 16 E is built using koa, a lightweight wood with a highly resonant character that produces a rich timbre. From a pronounced mid-range character through to clear cut highs, this concert ukulele has a unique voice that commands attention. Strummed or fingerpicked, you can rest assured that each and every note rings out with the utmost clarity.
The natural grain of the koa is displayed for all to appreciate beneath a natural satin finish that provides protection for the wood to age gracefully, yet manages to prevent unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your performance. Thanks to the cutaway, the highester reaches of the fingerboard can be reached with ease.
Highly playable neck
Joined to the body is a roburst okoume neck, which invites and encourages you to let loose as you play. Married to the neck is a natural wood fingerboard, which is home to 18 frets that are adorned with dot position inlays to guide your way in understated style.
The Tanglewood Tiare TWT 16 E Concert is equipped with the easy to use Tanglewood TEQ-TUT pickup system. Designed to keep a low profile whilst ensuring that the timbre of the ukulele is translated beautifully when amplified, you can perform on the stage and in the studio with complete peace of mind.
As you would expect from a Tanglewood, there's a range of premium features included such as die-cast tuners, a hardwood bridge complete with ABS ivory white saddle - and corresponding nut at the top of the neck. The ukulele is strung with Aquila Nylgut strings as standard, and the soundhole and headstock are decorated with a stylish tribal motif.
