The Baroq-uleles (TM) by Roosebeck, are one of the most option-rich lines of instruments we carry. The design is based on the round-back guitar found in Germany. This Baritone-sized instrument is based upon a 480mm (19 inches) scale. It features a European spruce soundboard with a four-point rosette design taken from a 17th century lute. The back is a round-back or bowl shape made of staves of sheesham (Dalbergia sissoo). The neck is solid sheesham and features a nut width of 36mm (1 7/16 inch) with a cattle-bone nut. This instrument is outfitted with standard friction ukulele tuners. The tension on each friction tuner can be adjusted by tightening or loosening the screw on the top of the tuner. The bridge, also made of sheesham , incorporates a genuine cattle-bone saddle. An end-pin strap button is standard. Overall size: 30 x 7.5 w x 4 inches.
The Baroq-uleles (TM) by Roosebeck, come in 4 sizes including Soprano, Concert, Tenor and Baritone. Each size is graced with its own unique rosette design, each of which is taken from museum examples from the 16th and 17th centuries. In addition to the four sizes, the Baroq-ulele is also available with 3 types of woods for the back: sheesham , lacewood (chenar) or variegated with alternating staves of sheesham and lacewood. It comes with standard ukulele friction tuners. Gig Bag included.
SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS:
There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings every 3-4 months. It is always a good idea to keep an extra set of stings to replace any that may break. You should always wipe down your strings with a clean dry cloth after use. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.
