Myrtlewood – Myrtlewood

Lu’au S Concert Ukulele

Sustainable, solid-topped Breedlove ECO Collection Lu’au S Series myrtlewood ukuleles feature a resonant core tonewood layer of clear-cut free, individually harvested African mahogany in place of typical tonerobbing softwoods for back and sides. Sharing a Pacific Ocean coastline with Hawaiian koa, native Oregon myrtle has a similar bright ping, but borrows some of mahogany’s depth and warmth for a unique, powerful ukulele presence. Concert ukuleles, developed in the 1920s as a slightly larger cousin to the traditional soprano, are the perfect diminutive musical tool for the hobbyist or the professional. Rich and responsive, this full-shouldered acoustic electric Breedlove Lu’au S Concert uke, with a glamorous Natural Shadow finish, tucks right underneath the arm and sings along to any style.

Features

Sustainable & Clear Cut Free
Made from sustainably-sourced exotic and native tonewoods. No clear-cut trees are used in these instruments. Breedlove uses salvaged and individually harvested timber and has deep relationships with responsible suppliers around the globe. As we move towards sustainability across all lines, owner Tom Bedell has visited 15 countries to discover exactly where the wood comes from, how it is selected and harvested, and how this affects the wildlife, the community, the forest and the planet.
