In recent years Lanikai have moved towards using a greater variety of woods for their ukes. The Flame Maple of the title refers to the back and sides of the uke (which have relatively little influence on the sound) whereas the top is solid spruce. Spruce gives a very immediate and forceful sound – one not often associated with the uke. But it is very effective in its own right.
