Echolele

This is a 6 string tenor built around a ukulele theme. We at UkuLuLu try to carry the design through the whole instrument: the soundhole, the head shape, the inlay, the fingerboard, the bridge, and even the choice of wood. In this one, the head is shaped like a ukulele, the end of the fingerboard is shaped like a ukulele, and the bridge is a ukulele. Perhaps we carried this a little too far…

 

The six strings are really good for fingerpicking. It’s still a ukulele, but it’s got more bass to it than a 4 string uke.
