Now for something very special, unusual and innovative. The folks at Lava Music have come up with these amazing new Lava U ukuleles. They put whole heaps of research and development into the one piece carbon fibre moulded ukulele. The body feels so nice and tactile, soft and comfortable in the hand and can be played in environments from -4 to +140 degree Fahrenheit. It produces a lovely warm tone.
The Freeboost pickup in this model is incredibly clever and special. It uses special technology to turn the ukulele itself into a speaker so you can use reverb, delay and chorus effects without even plugging in! It’s like magic. And of course, you can plug in too for playing live. Volume, tone and effects are all easily controlled through the neat buttons near the soundhole. It’s even fully rechargeable so you never have to worry about replacing batteries. Amazing stuff.
The fretboard is made of HPL (high pressure laminate), has a lovely smooth edge and features a carbon fibre truss rod to ensure the neck stays straight for years to come. Even the tuners are well thought out and work beautifully – the first ever screwless ukulele tuner.
The whole package is innovative and modern and the unpacking one of these is like unpacking an iPhone – everything is so neat and well thought out. The space age cases are so cool! Just like something out of 2001 Space Odyssey!
