#365- Port Orford Cedar and Walnut Baritone Ukulele

The baritone Ukulele is a bit of a strange sibling to the Tenor. It is tuned to a lower pitch and often seems the odd one out at the Ukulele club. But, over the past four years, many pros have taken to them for their main performance uke because of the wide range and rich sound. You can always put a capo on it and strum it like a regular uke too. The cheaper 1960’s all mahogany baritone is usually dark and quiet, the challenge is to make a baritone that projects it’s sound and has a rich deep voice. This one uses Port Orford Cedar, grafted walnut and grafted pistachio from woodfeomthewest.com. The fir neck is made from salvaged floor boards.
