Which tonewood is a solid choice for your playing style? Find out with our short-list below.

Top 3 Solid-Top Tonewoods

1. Mahogany - TKGL-20 Tenor Guitarlele (demo by Kamaki Keawe)

Sustain is what it’s all about with this tonewood. For long-lasting notes that are full without being brittle or too bright, a solid mahogany soundboard will carry. Excellent bass and mid range tones are one of the main characteristics of beautiful mahogany. More info on this instrument here.

 

 

2. Cedar - CK-50ME Concert (demo by Bernadette Plazola)

Cedar is sought after for its warmth and fullness of tone. For artists and music that require a softer, mellower touch, this tonewood is the way to go! Bernadette warms our hearts with a demo on a concert cedar top. More info on this uke here.

 

 

3. Spruce - TK-70R Tenor (demo by Lise Lee)

We use spruce tops for a number of models as it tends to create a bright tone, perfect for cutting through a music class. Listen to a stellar Ohana artist by the name of Lise Lee as she demonstrates how this popular spruce top sounds. More info on this uke here.
