Collings UC2K Concert Ukulele Koa ID-5420
Collings UC2K Koa Concert Uke
The UC2K is Collings gloss lacquer finish tenor model with increased appointments. With solid Koa top, back and side wood, the Collings UC2K comes standard with the Collings trademark ''haircut'' peghead shape. Gorgeous appointmens on this Uke are the Ivoroid bindings complimented by the standard black/white Purfling, making the body look very classy and understated. An Indian Rosewood fretboard and bridge complete the package.
Collings Ukes also feature a highly innovative tuning system by Pegheds. These tuners are geared and offer much more control and stability than traditional friction tuners. The 4:1 gear reduction allows strings to be tuned more easily and accurately than traditional wood pegs (or Caspari-type mechanisms which require screw drivers or special keys). Tune confidently and securely with the left hand while playing open strings; even during performance! PEGHEDS tuners return the fine-tuning function to pegs. Strings slide more freely over the smooth, wide nut than over the comparatively sharp edge of the bridge, where stress is concentrated and equilibrium of tension on either side is more difficult to achieve.
Collings makes instruments with such superb tone and aesthetics. The craftmanship is top notch and comes out in the tone, playability, and feel of their great instrument. This ukeis truly a great one to add to any players collection.
