Have a listen below to some Wave Ukes and compare how various woods result in different tones!
All were recorded using a modest Mic with no effects or coloration added! Click on info to see wood description for each audio clip.
Some general characteristics of various woods:
- Maple back and sides result in a bit more bite and ping in the overall sound!
- Walnut back and sides offer a full and warmer tone
- Spruce tops are full and warm with good attacking volume
- Cedar tops are very warm and round sounding with lots of bottom end
