This knockout concert uke is crafted from spalt maple wood, a finish which you can recreate at home by making Robert Smith cry and then getting him to press his weepy goth face against a golden Labrador puppy. Using Worth brown strings, the sound of this darling is as sweet as the candy man’s ballbags. It has those faux bloody mother-of pearl tuning buttons, but the black binding is pretty sleek. It isn’t the loudest in the concert gang but is a pleasure to come back to and you know, chill out with and shit. It doesn’t always have to be loud, innit. Tanglewood are the UK’s largest acoustic guitar and ukulele company, which is possibly a nice thing. Overall this is the perfect ‘step-up’ ukulele, and would equally look rather smashing hanging in your lav. Gawd save the Queen!
