Keiki Designer Series Ukulele, Soprano Sized Spalted Maple K3-SPM
These Keiki® ukulele packs are adorned with a beautiful natural wooden top. We use spalted maple wood to craft the top side of the body and okoume to build the neck and headstock. These tone woods deliver a sound full of warmth, depth, resonance and clarity. The spalted maple also has a striking, exotic look.
Synthetic ABS is used for the sides, back, fretboard and bridge for an added dose of durability and clarity of sound. All wood surfaces feature a natural satin finish, the back and sides have a textured black finish and the neck is finished in smooth, matte black.
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 soprano size (scale 364 mm / 14.33") is easy to handle while delivering a full sound rich with warm tone for strumming and definition for picking. This size is great for any level of player from beginner to advanced, and it's also perfect for traveling. Play in virtually any situation indoors or outside and solo or with a band. This ukulele will also look great out on display in your home, studio, classroom or office.
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!
