Tanglewood's new Tiare ukulele range proves popular down under

Acoustic guitar brand Tanglewood flew over 10,000 miles from London last weekend to the Melbourne Guitar Show, held in the city at Caulfield Racecourse, to showcase its gear in a joint booth with string partner Elixir.

Tanglewood’s distribution partner National Music exhibited a full series lineup of instruments, giving visitor’s an exclusive world-first look at the new Polynesian inspired Tiare ukuleles – a brand new range of arched-back, pro-spec instruments in all popular size and feature formats.

Consumer demand for the Tiare range post-show has resulted in the first August container selling out before it even hit Australia.

UK retailers will receive their first Tiare deliveries at the end of September.

As part of the main show event, top artists took part in a documentary premiere called Acoustic Uprising, and one key player, Van Larkins, was so impressed with the new Tanglewood Sundance Performance Pro X15SDTE model that he played all his show performances with the guitar.

Van Larkins, who is originally from Brisbane Queensland, is tipped to be a new world guitar star. Phil Emmanuel from Australian Guitar describes him as a musician who “creates a beautiful musical soundscapes”.

“We're very proud he chose to perform with Sundance Performance Pro,” said Tanglewood.
