Effe is an electric archtop ukulele and for now it comes only in tenor size.
I laminate ash veneer on custom molds and them press them under vacuum to obtain a strong but light structure, very suitable to be used in a semiacoustic instrument, due to the higher resistence to the Larsen effect.
It’s my only model strung with steel strings and it’s amplified with a magnetic pickup hand-wound by me in my workshop. The pickup can be controlled in tone and volume by 2 thumbwheel under the pickuguard.
I choose to put a black finish on the sides and to give a color touch only to the top and the back, increasing the contrast and mixing some modern design with the retro style suggested by the smooth curves and the F-shaped soundholes.
