Ohana Baritone Ukulele BK-35G
The perfect marriage between easy and beautiful.
If you’ve ever tried learning guitar and things didn’t go so well, you’re probably looking at the right instrument. If you’ve been playing ukulele and would like to add a guitar sound into your repertoire, you’re probably looking at the right instrument.
Back in the day, it was normal to teach baritone ukulele because it’s easier, sounds good, and you have fun. Then one day they decided you should suffer to play guitar and they started teaching it on six strings. And too many people quit.
Imagine yourself with the ease of playing four strings (two of them are nylon-ish!) using ukulele chords and still having all the depth of sound you love in a guitar. No, you can’t play bass runs the professionals like to use to dazzle you, but you’re not doing those anyway, right?! You just strum it and sing, or pluck it to produce those pretty arpeggios, or use it as a weapon to chase your enemies off.
Here’s what you should know about this beautiful baritone ukulele: It’s all solid mahogany on the top, back and sides and so it resonates with a beautiful dark tone and that tone should continue to develop with age. The neck is mahogany too with a rosewood fretboard. There’s pretty rosewood binding around the body and closed geared tuners.
Yeah, this one is a little pricier than the BK-20 version, but the deeper more complex tone, upgraded materials, and gloss finish help to justify the higher price.
As always, I can give you a price discount for local pickup.
