The Luna Baritone Ukulele features a baritone ukulele body which is ideal for those bass players and guitarists wanting to make to transition to ukulele. Being much bigger than the soprano, tenor, and concert ukes, the baritone offers great projection and volume, yet still provides a comfortable playing experience. The Luna Baritone is ideal for a wide range of playing styles but is well-suited to blues-inspired genres.
Equipped with Luna's own preamp, the Baritone Ukulele is ideal for the gigging musicians, and offers basic sound tweaking for live and rehearsal environments. Luna's own preamp features slider controls for bass, presence, and volume which enables basic tone shaping for players to achieve their desired amplified sound. Simply plug-in to a P.A system or amp and listen to the acoustic's natural tone come alive.
The Luna Baritone Ukulele Bass features a spruce top that delivers a broad dynamic range as well as a crisp and versatile tonal character. Its spruce top is bright and loud yet still delivers a full, warm sound that can accommodate numerous playing styles. The spruce top is coupled with mahogany back and sides which produce a focused, punchy, and meaty mid-range. The rich resonant warmth of the mahogany and the versatility of the spruce top provide players with a classic sound that is sure to please.
Constructed from mahogany, the Baritone's neck offers a rich, resonant sound and great durability. Mahogany is commonly used to craft instrument necks, as the wood responds exceptionally well to numerous techniques and playing styles with equal ease. To provide comfort, the Baritone Ukulele features a C shaped neck profile, which offers players a comfortable and secure grip, reducing the likeliness of a cramping hand. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that produces a warm, bright, sizzling-sparkle that really shines through when playing fingerpicking techniques. Its rosewood fingerboard also offers a smooth and energetic playing experience and is sprinkled with mother of pearl shark teeth inlays to project Luna's passion for creativity and nature-inspired designs.
Yvonne Villiers is an accomplished stained-glass artist who envisioned Luna guitars. Her inspiration for a line of guitars designed to maximise playing comfort came from her mother, Hilda Villiers, a bassist for over 40 years. Whilst watching her mum on stage, Yvonne couldn't help but notice the massive struggle her mum had whilst playing. With her mum being petite and using such a heavy instrument, she used to complain of how hard it was to be a woman and try to play these big bass guitars.
Yvonne then questioned if there were others like her mum that struggled with the same problems and pains. She came up with the idea of a woman specific guitar, uniquely tailored to fit their bodies, their hands, and their musical styles. Yvonne moved on to created Luna guitars, a line of guitars made for female musicians of all ages and crafted with luminous visual beauty to engage women's minds and spirits along with their talent.
Yvonne already had brilliant artistic skills and use of colour, she then applied the same techniques as she did with her award winning stained glass work to her new line of guitars. She is known for using rich colours that shimmer and shine with every movement providing an eye-catching design along with the great musical tones Luna guitars deliver. Yvonne's design expertise has led so many men to respond to Luna's well-crafted, spirit-engaging instruments that the company now creates guitars for both female and male musicians of all ages.
