The Tanglewood TWT12E Tiare Concert Size Electro Ukulele is crafted with a unique all ovangkol top, back and sides which has the strength of rosewood and the sweetness of koa. The TWT12E's concert size offers a fuller and deeper sound than the classic soprano. It's larger size makes it manageable for beginners as well as concert playing, while the convenient cutaway offers a comfortable playing experience and access to all frets. Coupled with a unique okoume neck, which is tonally similar to maple, the TWT12E Ukulele delivers bright tones with good sustain. For added volume, the TWT12E is equipped with a Tanglewood TEQ-TUT pickup for extra projection when playing to a large crowd.
