Blackbird Clara Ekoa® Concert Ukulele

$1,295.00

The Blackbird Clara is a compact concert ukulele with a voice that rivals a larger tenor. Every detail was engineered to provide unmatched projection and dynamics. Built in San Francisco, USA, the Clara ukulele is crafted from Ekoa®-a biobased linen composite structurally superior to the gold-standard: vintage, old-growth wood. Clara's 'double top' soundboard is highly consistent unlike wood and tuned for the ideal rigidity and density with minimal bracing. The exceptional tone is nuanced and complex because Ekoa® is a natural material. A hollow neck resonance chamber enhances projection and sustain. The one-piece body/neck/head composite construction is rugged and weather stable offering a worry-free ownership experience.
