The 55 series features all Mahogany timbers delivering warm mid range punch and traditional island vibes.
Mahogany is probably the one of the most popular choice of tonewood for Ukulele’s backs and sides. Mahogany is a dense wood, with a dark finish, and close grain. Tonally, it has far warmer, darker tone than both Cedar and Spruce.
As a material for back and sides, mahogany’s density can add great ‘punch’ and projection, adding warmth, but with definition, and a ‘woody’ character.
