Luna Tapa Electro Acoustic Concert Ukulele, Solid Cedar Top

Details
The Luna Tapa Electro Acoustic Concert Ukulele, Solid Cedar Top features a laser etched Hawaiian Tapa design which projects Luna's love for spiritual and nature-inspired designs. With a solid cedar top and mahogany body, the Luna Tapa delivers a warm, sweet, classic ukulele sound that can be amplified due to it being equipped with Luna's own preamp. In addition the Luna Tapa also has a concert body shape which not only provides a comfortable playing experience but provides a richer, warmer tone than its smaller sized soprano family member. Its concert body is also ideal for ukulele soloists, as it has an extended range and 20 frets, enabling more technical abilities to be performed. With a superb ukulele voice, built-in preamp, pearl triangle inlays, and Alex Morgan's design gracing its solid cedar top, the Luna Tapa looks as enchanting as it sounds.

Luna Preamp

Equipped with Luna's own preamp, the Luna Tapa provides amplified acoustic sound for live and rehearsal environments. The preamp offers basic sound tweaking through its slider controls for volume, bass, and presence, enabling players to set their tone to personal preference by adding more presence or bass to your natural acoustic tone.

Solid Cedar Top & Mahogany Body

The Luna Tapa features a solid cedar top, which is the second most common choice for ukulele tops and produces a bit more bass than a spruce top would do. Cedar produces more complex overtones and offers a lively, sweet warmth that has just the right amount of bite. Its cedar top is accompanied by mahogany back and sides which produce a vibrant and resonant sound that complement the cedar's tonal character beautifully. The mahogany back and sides also offers more volume, and a strong balance between high-end and bass, which enables this uke to retain classic ukulele tone.

Mahogany Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

Constructed from mahogany, the Tapa's neck provides players with plenty of resonance and great durability. Many ukulele necks are made from mahogany because the wood responds greatly to picking, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that delivers a bright, warm tone, and sparkly sound that really shines through when using finger picking techniques. Its rosewood fingerboard also offers a smooth and energetic playing experience and is sprinkled with pearl triangle inlays to maintain its Pacific Island motif theme.

Concert Ukulele Body

The Luna Tapa features a concert body shape, which produces rich and clear sound suitable for numerous techniques and styles of play. The Tapa has 20 frets and has become the choice of preference for ukulele soloists due to its extended range. The concert shape enables players to perform more technical skills, whilst maintaining classic ukulele tone. In addition, the concert shape is slightly larger than standard soprano size and provides more volume due to more room for sound to vibrate around the body.

Luna History

Yvonne Villiers is an accomplished stained-glass artist who envisioned Luna guitars. Her inspiration for a line of guitars designed to maximise playing comfort came from her mother, Hilda Villiers, a bassist for over 40 years. Whilst watching her mum on stage, Yvonne couldn't help but notice the massive struggle her mum had whilst playing. With her mum being petite and using such a heavy instrument, she used to complain of how hard it was to be a woman and try to play these big bass guitars.

Yvonne then questioned if there were others like her mum that struggled with the same problems and pains. She came up with the idea of a woman specific guitar, uniquely tailored to fit their bodies, their hands, and their musical styles. Yvonne moved on to created Luna guitars, a line of guitars made for female musicians of all ages and crafted with luminous visual beauty to engage women's minds and spirits along with their talent.

Yvonne already had brilliant artistic skills and use of colour, she then applied the same techniques as she did with her award winning stained glass work to her new line of guitars. She is known for using rich colours that shimmer and shine with every movement providing an eye-catching design along with the great musical tones Luna guitars deliver. Yvonne's design expertise has led so many men to respond to Luna's well-crafted, spirit-engaging instruments that the company now creates guitars for both female and male musicians of all ages.
