Preowned. Gorgeous Custom Tyde “Baby Tenor” Ukulele handcrafted by self taught luthiers Tyler Joersz and Devin Price on the North Shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe. Pronounced “Tide” the company name is a collaboration of the founders names of (Ty) ler and (De) vin, or ” TYDE”.
Tyler and Devin apprenticed under master woodworker and founder of Roundwood Furniture, Cline. Shortly there after, a trip to Hawaii and the love of music is what inspired these two friends to take the furniture skillsets and apply them to handcrafted custom ukuleles, where their love of woodworking and music intersect. Innovation, creativity and a non-traditional approach allow them to build great sounding, gorgeous, and comfortable instruments to travel with ease.
TYDE Music has an appreciation for wood, and understand it is a major life source to our planet. While they do use exotic woods, they prefer to use local, reclaimed, and sustainable woods in their instruments. While looking to reduce waste, they look for contractors that have materials from remodels. As for themselves they look to salvage materials from landfills, furniture scraps, and even local piers and docks. Sometimes when customers place an order for a ukulele, the customers have salvaged or left over pieces of wood that they ask to be reused in their instrument, this is something TYDE gets excited about to use.
This beautiful Custom Tyde “Baby Tenor” Ukulele has a 16.25 inch scale and is about 1 inch smaller than a contemporary tenor and 1 inch larger than a typical concert sized ukulele. Handcrafted of premium Ziricote wood back and sides with a beautiful master grade curly Hawaiian Koa wood soundboard, this beautiful Custom Tyde “Baby Tenor” Ukulele also boasts a matching Ziricote wood segmented rosette, fingerboard, bridge, and headstock veneer with Hawaiian Koa nouveau fretboard and headstock inlay. Inlay position markers on 3, 5, 7, 10, 12, and 15 for quick reference and side-of-neck position markers for a top-down perspective when playing. Satin finish on body and neck for a smooth touch when playing. Honduras Mahogany wood for added stability and transference of the vibrations back into the body. Smooth beveled top and back body design makes for added comfort when cradling. Ziricote end graft and top and back binding with an alternate orientation in the wood from that of the Ziricote body, giving it a subtle contrast. “Three Dot” side sound port by which the sound fires upward toward the player for a monitor-like experience when playing. Gotoh UPT tuners for smooth and precise tuning.
A full bodied and resonant tone with excellent clarity. Nice projection and wonderful sustain. A wonderful ukulele for both the recreational player and the professional musician. ID#230027
