Finish Option: Gloss / Satin / Natural

Gloss

Our High Gloss finish is a multi-part spray water-based polyurethane. We use Target brand coatings water based two part system, starting with the level sealer and ending with the final glossy finish. We take the extra time and care to hand rub a pore sealer with many sanding steps in between every process. Finally we buff it to a wonderful shine. A high quality, properly sprayed finish will help your instrument last for decades and remember the finish actually takes years to cure improving the sound over time. So when you play a newly finished instrument for the first time, try to remember that your properly-stored Imua ukulele will get better with age like a fine wine!

Satin

Our Satin finish is a multi-part spray water-based polyurethane. We use Target brand coatings water based two part system, starting with the level sealer and ending with the final satin finish sometimes referred to as a semi-gloss. We take the extra time and care to hand rub a pore sealer with many sanding steps in between every process. A high quality, properly sprayed finish will help your instrument last for decades and remember the finish actually takes years to cure improving the sound over time. So when you play a newly finished instrument for the first time, try to remember that your properly-stored Imua ukulele will get better with age like a fine wine!

Natural

Our Natural finish is a laborious process, but without the extra costs involved for the full gloss or satin spray style. We are using the old-style, traditional technique of doing a hand rubbed, three part process with multiple sandings. We apply the pore sealer, as we do with the gloss spray style, but instead of a spray, we hand rub the oil and Briwax in multiple stages allowing the natural sound of the wood to come through. We still finish with a nice buffing! But remember, you don't get the full protection as the glossy finish so take care not to bang your ukulele around unless you like the look the look of a well-played instrument. Should you choose to bring back the luster you can hand rub Briwax over your instrument with a 0000 steel wool. This will shine it back up as well as keeping the wood cared for. A well loved and cared for ukulele will treat you as nice as you treat it!
