Snail BHC-5T Solid Spruce Top Tenor Ukulele. A relatively recent brand, Snail Ukuleles have proved a more than welcome addition to the great Ukulele roster and have found high favour among the staff here at the Duke of Uke.
The Snail BHC-5T Solid Spruce Top Tenor Ukulele pairs a classic combination of spruce and ebony woods for a rich, resonant tone. The solid spruce on this model is beautifully finished in gloss, and the intricately decorated fretboard with inlaid lily design adds a nicely understated accent to the overall appearance of the instrument. Typical of solid spruce, the sound is clear, dynamic and punchy, with plenty of volume and projection and crystal clear high notes. A slotted headstock provides a nice touch, a classic look with black tuning machines.
Beautifully constructed, with just a slightly wider than usual neck width (affording extra fretting hand comfort), Snail Ukuleles feature a selection of handsome wood grains, giving each instrument an individual look, and a uniquely warm, expressive tonality throughout their entire range.
