Instrument Categories:

The Kala Concert Ukulele Ziricote is a visually spectacular instrument, taking full advantage of Ziricote’s dramatic grain patterns and figuring.   

The Kala Concert Ukulele Ziricote line features a rich, dark, chocolate brown wood accentuated by a honey blonde Sapwood in the middle and along the sides, finished in a high-gloss to make the details pop. On these instruments, solid Ziricote is used for the top, back and sides, with Mahogany for the neck and body blocks. The fingerboard and bridge are Walnut.   Sealed tuners with black buttons are at the head.  Aquila Nylgut strings are used, and tie on in the same manner as on a Classical or Flamenco guitar.   The nut and saddle are Tusq.  

Kala Concert Ziricote  ukuleles don’t just look good, they sound great, and are also available in Soprano and Tenor models.    This particular line is built to spec in China, and includes a case. 

Ziricote or Cordia Dodecandra is a hardwood found from south Florida, through the Caribbean and as far as Brazil. Much of the harvesting is done in Mexico, Belize and Guatemala.

Read What Breedlove,  prominent American builder since 1990, has to say about Ziricote:

“Ziricote is similar visually to Brazilian rosewood, but with dark greys instead of warm browns and rich chocolates. Tonally it is similar to striped ebony, but brighter.Deep boomy sound with sparkly highs. A favorite wood for classical, Baroque, flamenco, and other fingerstyles.

It is known for low dampening qualities, similar to most rosewoods, with rich basses and clear trebles. Produces more clarity than Indian rosewood, but provides more overtones than Macassar ebony. Striking in appearance, much like Brazilian Rosewood, often with “spider-webbing” but in shades of grays and olive greens with black rather than reds with black.

A slow growing tree, Ziricote is found in tropical deciduous forests, usually at low elevations but occasionally at elevations up to 1,500 feet in the mountains. While not technically a rainforest tree, it does need at least 40 inches of rainfall annually.”
