TENOR SIZE BODY MADE FROM DAO
Dao is an exotic tonewood with a warm, vibrant tone that sounds akin to mahogany. The body is slightly bigger than a baritone-size ukulele body, but still very comfortable to play.
TWO NECKS FOR A MAXIMUM OF POSSIBILITIES
With two necks you can play percussive fingerstyle, live loops, or play and sing along. It is like having two instruments built into one uke.
PLUGGED IN OR UNPLUGGED
No matter if you want to record your session or play live with an amplifier, the HYDRA-BSTE offers a jack output for both. With the 3-way toggle switch, you can choose the uke bass, tenor uke, or both necks.
ALWAYS IN TUNE WITH THE BUILT-IN MAGUSUKE ELECTRONICS
Thanks to the built-in MagusUke electronics unit, you can dial in your preferred sound with the three-band EQ. When pressing the tuner button, the instrument is being muted and you can tune both necks with the chromatic tuner.
In this product video, RJ Ronquillo demonstrates the different setups. The double-neck uke can be played both plugged in or unplugged.
Duncan Howlett has recorded a great live looping version of "Seven Nation Army". For his performance, he has used the HYDRA-BSTE double-neck ukulele, a QUANTUMloop digital stomp box and looper, and a QUANTUMexp. Watching the video, you will get an idea of what can be played on this special instrument.
