Ortega Keiki Designer Series Ukulele Sopranino Red K1-RD
The Keiki® series represents a new generation of colorful, playful, spirited instruments from the Ortega family.
We use okoume wood to craft the body, neck and headstock (this is a rich tone wood that's used as a direct substitute for mahogany). It delivers a sound full of warmth, depth, resonance and clarity. Top grade walnut is used for the fretboard and bridge that adds a high-end look with classic sound. All wood surfaces are finished in satin with an open pore on the body, neck and headstock. Features a laser-etched sea turtle rosette.
The four white nylon strings on this ukulele (Ortega Guitars model UWNY-4-SO strings to be specific), are tuned with open gear tuning machines. Open gear machines add less weight to the headstock, allowing the neck to resonate more freely. This style of tuners also has a throwback look to create a subtle vintage vibe.
The smallest in our catalog of ukuleles, the sopranino size (scale 284 mm, 11.18") is easy to hold and lets you play chords with practically no strain on your hands. This size is great for any level of player, and its compact design is convenient when traveling. (It's also the perfect size to store out in the open on a shelf in your home, office or studio space).
When you buy a uke at Mill River Music, it's ready to play right away! We inspect and test each uke upon arrival at the shop, and stretch the strings several times until the instrument maintains its tuning--care and service you don't get if you buy from big box stores!
