The unique, high-contrast and almost exotic-looking grain of the back and sides is based on a tonewood that comes from Thuringia (Germany).
This instrument is particularly effective due to the combination of sequoia (redwood) and walnut (back/sides), which could not be more different and yet harmonize very well both visually and acoustically.
But a special feature of this instrument is not only the choice of wood, but the frame used here is a so-called "laminated frame", which consists of 2 layers of walnut.
But why use this technique?
The frame of the instrument, which alone is responsible for the shape and stability, should be as stiff and stable as possible. If you now glue 2 layers of high-quality wood together, an incredibly robust construction is created.
Furthermore, this instrument is a so-called "Double Back" ukulele, which has a second soundboard integrated inside the body. This amplifies the volume as well as the depth and sustain of the sound.
Apart from the unique choice of wood, this instrument is decorated with tuners that are only found on ukuleles from "Ziegenspeck". These exclusive mechanics are handcrafted in Germany with the highest precision.
The body and the neck of the ukulele have been varnished with a satin nitrocellulose varnish. This has a very nice natural feel and can be held comfortably for a long time.
The instrument will be handed over to the future owner in a high-quality case. This has a plaque made from the same wood as the instrument in the case.
