Build an incredible Flamed Maple uke!
We've found a small stash of beautiful exotic woods that are perfect for ukuleles. Flamed Maple (Acer macrophyllum) will make a stunning looking uke with a powerful and bright voice.
Big Leaf Maple can exhibit exceptionally gorgeous figure. Rich, deep, edge-to-edge flame is common. In many ways maple is much like the "lightning" to rosewood's "thunder". Where rosewood offers thick, low-end rumble, maple offers a fast attack with a quick drop off. It's perfect for creating a voice that is clear, uncomplicated and can be heard apart from the rest of the band.
