Superb build quality
The team at Tanglewood have garnered a reputation for high quality craftsmanship, and the Tiare series benefits from their expertise. The body is built using koa, a lightweight yet highly resonant wood that delivers a sparkling timbre. The highs are pronounced to gives each note a remarkable clarity, perfect for both fingerpicking and strumming. The natural grain of the koa shines for all to see beneath a satin finish, which prevents the surface from becoming sticky and impeding movement over time. The single-cutaway body profile allows every fret to be reached comfortably.
Connected to the body is a sturdy Okoume neck, which establishes a reassuringly solid playing feel during performances. Paired with the neck is a hardwood fingerboard, which is decorated with dot position inlays to provide a subtle navigational aid.
The Tanglewood Tiare TWT 17 E Tenor 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 both 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.
