The Tanglewood Tiare TWT10 is surely one of the most visually attractive and unique instruments in the whole range. A concert size instrument in high gloss finish, this ukulele has timbers crafted from exotic Spalt Maple. Spalt Maple is a term used in manufacturing, derived from the words "spoilt Maple" and it has a very unique claim to fame. This timber has been retrieved from mountain lakes and creeks, where for generations it has laid submerged in water and gradually taken on a unique grain identity, noticeable by the striking ebony marks on the otherwise pale maple timber. Retrieved, seasoned and kiln dried for precise manufacturing, Spalt Maple is a very unique and rare timber that has a great story to tell and its cosmetic is without doubt a key part of its popularity. The TWT10 has the Tiare trademark "Fiddleback" contouring on the rear of the body for increased sound projection and enhanced tonality and is fitted as standard with the class leading Aquila strings from Italy. If you want a concert ukulele which quite possibly began its life as a Maple tree over three hundred years ago and has been weathered and aged by natural elements into the work of art cosmetic you see on our images, then this is the instrument for you.
