Only recently did we make our first Oak ukulele at Bondi HQ. We love testing out new woods and seeing how they sound & look. It's one of the perks of being an instrument manufacturer. So we made a sample oak uke, fully expecting it to flop. I mean, we'd never heard of anyone making a uke out of oak before!
We could not have been more surprised. We love the sustain of this uke & the tone is very similar to mahogany but just a touch brighter, which matches it's appearance. The appearance of the oak is striking, we absolutely adore it. It's chock full of personality and the sound is spot on, welcome to the Bondi family young Oakulele!
