Cordoba 35T All-Solid Acacia Tenor Ukulele w/Bag
The 35T tenor uke features all solid acacia for the top, back, and sides which give it a clear, bright tone, and distinctive figured appearance. The 35T also features a beautiful rosewood bridge, binding, and fingerboard. The styling is refined and sleek, using abalone for the inlaid rosette and rosewood for the binding, capped off with Cordoba’s signature elevated headstock with a figured acacia overlay. The finish is a gloss polyurethane, applied as thinly as possible for maximum resonance. Other features include a black TUSQ® nut and saddle, chrome Grover tuners, and a Cordoba polyfoam case.
This new line of tenors from Cordoba is a giant leap in tone for them. This Acacia tenor has an impressive amount of volume and punch. We are extremely pleased to inform you that Cordoba's new venture into higher end ukes is a success! Why? The Sound!
The tone on this 35T is bright and "open" almost like a Pepe Romero. It has a similar character or voicing. The solid spruce top has even more "boom", but this acacia model has a beautiful balance of lows and highs. We think you are gonna love the sound on this tenor!
The 35T also features a beautiful rosewood bridge, binding, and fingerboard. The finish is a hand rubbed Nitrocellulose lacquer, applied as thin as possible for maximum resonance. Other features include a black TUSQ® nut and saddle, and chrome Grover tuners.
Hand rubbed Nitrocellulose finish is best for tone but doesn't give a "perfect" look. You can see the pores of the grain but it is well protected and allows the wood to breathe. These are beautiful in design but primarily built for optimal tone. They were built in a completely different way from the regular line of Cordoba ukuleles. Here is what Cordoba says about that -
The new 30 series, a premium line of boutique, all-solid tenor ukuleles approached from a classical or Spanish guitar building perspective. Most notably, Cordoba is using an integrated neck joint or “Spanish Heel” instead of a traditional dovetail joint to join the body and neck of the ukulele. This method of construction offers a lighter weight and more stable heel joint that increases resonance and is less prone to movement as the ukulele ages.
This ukulele sounds awesome! Along with our final setup work it's a great value for a pro level tenor. Get one now and we guarantee you will agree!
