Overview

Professional Ukulele for Professional Players

With the profound experience of a whole luthier's life, ukuleles of the highest quality are built in our workshop. With its quick response and wide frequency range, Filomena can be used equally well in an orchestra, a band or even as a soloist's instrument.

The maple wood radiates brightly and angelicly.

Description

Wood and Features

Back and sides made of solid Maple, this concert ukulele comes with a Spruce top and a Spanish Cedar neck. Unobtrusive Rosewood inlays and a Maple rosette complete the look of Filomena. Thereby, sustainability is an important concern for us. All Rosewood components were made from off-cuts. A large part of the wood used comes from local sources or from sustainable cultivation. Models made from purely local woods are also available on request.

Worth CT Carbon strings are the ultimate for ukuleles . They enhance the tone and at the same time bring a touch of Hawaii into the sound. High-quality Schaller  machines guarantee easy and secure tuning.

Handling/Playability

Thanks to a scale length of 380 mm, Filomena fits perfectly in the hand. Conventional ukuleles are usually built somewhat narrower than Filomena, which, with a nut width of 38 mm, allows for pleasant playing comfort. The extended fingerboard also makes the upper registers playable with ease. This opens up completely new possibilities for ambitious ukulele artists.

The range of uses is very broad due to the fast response and dynamic sound development. Traditional areas are supported as well as modern playing styles, such as fingerstyle or tapping.

Sound

Optimised body shape and internal construction transform the rather short, percussive original sound into a powerful, balanced euphony. The sound gains contour and substance and extends over a very broad frequency spectrum, making Filomena well suited for solo use.

Maple in combination with Spruce complements the exquisite tonal character of the Filomena with a bright, angelic radiance.
