The Korala UKB-210 is a baritone ukulele with a sapele wood body and engineered wood fingerboard. Sapele wood is also begin called African mahogany. Tonal sapele wood does everything mahogany does, with some extra clarity in the high frequencies.
Another important aspect is the fact that it is a durable type of wood. Furthermore the UKB-210 is provided with guitar mechanics.This way the instrument is easy to (fine)tune and will stay tuned longer. The UKB-210 is an elegant and modest ukulele with a warm sound at a favorable price.
The Baritone ukulele is the largest instrument in the ukulele family measuring an overall 30″ inches (76.2cm) in height. With its lower DGBE tuning and a low 4th string, the Baritone ukulele is tuned exactly the same as the top 4 strings on a guitar so it is popular with many musicians looking for an alternative to the guitar, or a travel guitar.
Like the guitar, the Baritone ukulele has a lower pitch than the Soprano, Concert and Tenor ukuleles, so it can be a great way to play what you know already using the same chord shapes, but achieve an altogether different sound and timbre.
That's right, all of your chord shapes remain the same! If you were to use the same shapes as you’ve learnt in traditional GCEA ukulele tuning on a Baritone, you’d simply be playing in a different key. Chord 'shapes' for the key of C in GCEA tuning (ie. C, Dm, Em, F, G, Am) played on a Baritone Ukulele produce chords in the Key of G (ie. G, Am, Bm, C, D, Em). It’s like extending the neck of your ukulele by 4 frets and adding a low 4th string. Once you’ve got your head around this, the Baritone can give you immediate access to a completely different tonal range and sound!
