The Classic Cantabile US 100 Ye has a matt lacquered mahogany body and neck from select Okoume wood. With the smooth guitar mechanics, the tuning of the ukulele is a breeze. The ukulele is fitted with nylon strings. The compact size makes it perfect to use as an instrument for traveling, as it can very easily be stowed in a backpack or gig bag optional.
originally brought the Portuguese immigrant Joao Fernandes 1879 Braguinha, a local form the cavaquinho, from Madeira to Hawaii. There it got the name "ukulele" (jumping flea), which should reflect the impact of the Hawaiians at the sight of the rapidly moving fingers across the fingerboard of the instrumentr.
From Hawaii then came the ukulele over America to Europe and was also well received in the music scene.
Ever since Stefan Raab and "TV Total", the ukulele became a real cult musical instrument in Germany also.
