Description

Barnes & Mullins BMUK1 ukuleles feature Mahogany tops matched with Mahogany back and sides. A medium / dense wood, Mahogany delivers a soft and warm, focused tone with plenty of emphasis on the mid-range.

Combined with their natural mid-brown colour and refined grain pattern, BMUK1 Mahogany ukuleles offer an excellent choice both aurally and visually for players throughout every stage of their uke playing journey.  

BMUK1 ukuleles are complete with an all-over satin finish and accentuated with a lightly coloured wood binding. They feature strap buttons for attaching a ukulele strap.  

This electro model features an onboard preamp with tuner, volume, bass and treble controls, making it a fantastic choice if you're someone who plays ukulele in an amplified ensemble or band setup.

Who is this ukulele for?

The bass ukulele is a relatively new type of ukulele on the scene. Although the bass ukulele scale length is only marginally longer than that of a baritone uke, the bass ukulele uses specially designed strings which are thicker in order for lower bass frequency notes to be achieved.

The bass ukulele is tuned the same way as a bass guitar – E, A, D, G – and is therefore a great instrument for bassists to pick up and immediately transfer their skills to. It is played in the same style as bass guitar, with strings that are plucked rather than strummed. Its low and warm tone offers an excellent option for ukulele ensembles to support the low-end of their overall sound. 

Common bass ukulele tunings

E, A, D, G – Same as the four strings of a bass guitar
