Electro Acoustic Pickup

One of the most exciting features of this Koda Irish Bouzouki is its audio jack output. A pickup means volume is never an issue. Just plug in and play and control the volume and tone levels directly from the control panel. An electric acoustic bouzouki offers huge performance potential making this the perfect instrument for the gigging musician. 

What are the Advantages of a Floating Bridge?

Floating bridges are more versatile than fixed bridges and can be easily adjusted. This allows for ease of adjustments to intonation and string height. The floating bridge is one of the main features that helps to create the bouzouki's characteristic biting sound, creating a bright top-end sound with plenty of attack.

What's the Difference Between an Irish Bouzouki and a Greek Bouzouki?

The bouzouki first became popular in Irish music in the 1970s. The so called Irish bouzouki is an adaptation of the much older original Greek string instrument. The three main differences between the Irish bouzouki and Greek bouzouki lie in the shape of the body, the length of the fingerboard and the tuning of the strings. 

Greek bouzoukis feature the typical rounded back, and can be either three course (6 string) or four course (8 string) instruments. Greek bouzoukis are typically slightly larger instruments with a longer scale length of approximately 27 frets. The Irish bouzouki features a shallow, flat back which some find easier to hold. Irish bouzoukis typically feature a shorter scale length of approximately 24 frets. 

The string sets or string pairs on a Greek bouzouki are typically tuned to a octave intervals. Standard tuning for a Greek bouzouki is CFAD. Irish bouzouki pairs are tuned in unison to GDAE or GDAD. This tuning lends itself well to accompanying traditional Irish music.
