In response to a few of our customers’ requests, we decided to try our hand at building a Jumbo tenor-sized Spalted Mango 5 string ukuleles ( Low G and an octave high G string) . We were extremely pleased at how they’ve been coming out. They sound as loud and rich as our other tenors, with a unique and distinctive tone quality that some of our customers actually prefer . For many years, folks have been requesting mango wood ukuleles. We built a few early on, but mango wood is very challenging to work with. It looks and sounds so great, though, that we have started making them again, and they are gorgeous, great-sounding, and selling like hotcakes! This entirely handmade spalted Mango Cutaway 5- string Jumbo Tenor comes with a MISI pick up installed . Just like our koa and mahogany models, are mango ukulele have the sound that definitely in the same league, but we are finding that a lot of players prefer it over any other wood for its striking, unique looks and tone.
