BREEDLOVE LU’AU CONCERT UKULELE SUNSET BURST CE #LUCU39CEMYMY
For years, Kim Breedlove departed the Breedlove workshop on late afternoons – just to go to his home garage workshop and craft ukuleles. Now retired, we are delighted to introduce m’s Breedlove Lu’au Concert Ukuleles. Each designed in Bend, Oregon, crafted in China from Oregon myrtlewood, design based on Kim’s custom shape and bracing. This models features a stunning sunset burst gloss finish
Solid Wood Tops Along with its body shape, a ukulele’s top is the defining element of its sound, driving, through its vibration, the key aspects of volume, tone, sustain and projection. Spruce will, due in part to its famous stiffness-to-weight ratio, ring loud and clear. A solid wood top translates those vibrations with more immediacy and purity of tone, and reacts more directly with the intent of a player. If you are at an intermediate level or above, you will appreciate the instantly recognizable benefits of a solid wood top.
MYRTLEWOOD TOP, BACK & SIDES Popularized by Breedlove, myrtlewood, from the windblown Oregon coast, combines the best elements of rosewood, mahogany and maple—rich bass, warm midrange and clear, bright trebles—for truly versatile guitars. Each sonically distinct instrument is individualized by the gnarled, wildly varied, but always arresting grain patterns.
CONCERT BODY Slightly larger than the original diminutive Hawaiian soprano, the Concert size is considered by many to be the perfect ukulele. It retains the delightful pingy sound of its smaller cousin, but its longer 15” scale allows for easier fretting, while its marginally wider body provides more tone and volume while still tucking comfortably beneath a strummer’s elbow.
