Build a showstopping Ziricote uke!
We've found a small stash of beautiful exotic woods that are perfect for ukuleles. Ziricote (Cordia dodecandra) makes a uke that will sound bold and complex.
Ziricote has an amazingly diverse range of colors. Prominent dark black lines often intertwine beautifully with shades of gray, gold, green, and rusty brown.
Ziricote can be a challenge to work with, and prone to cracking, but this amazing wood more than makes up in both tone and its striking visual appearance. It offers noteworthy sustain, a loud, pronounced bass, and clear, penetrating highs. It pairs well with nearly any top wood and imparts a broad, open tone with a high ceiling of volume.
