  • Description

    The Cuatro is a Venezuelan instrument. Most players strum the instrument (the reason for the tap plate built seamlessly on the upper bout), and the Cuatro's sound tends to serve as a rhythmic and harmonic base. Popular for its simplistic design and its compact size (20.5" or 521mm scale length), the Cuatro is a versatile instrument fit for all styles and varieties of music. Cordoba's Cuatro is made with a solid Spruce top, mahogany back and sides and a mahogany tap plate. Case not included.

    The Cordoba Cuatro is tuned to D-G-B-E (standard Baritone ukulele tuning). Traditionally the Cuatro is tuned to the standard A-D-F#-B. It is tuned in a similar fashion to the traditional D tuning of the ukulele, but the A and B are an octave lower. Consequently, the same fingering can be used to shape the chords, but it produces a different inversion of each chord.
