Collings UC3 Spruce and Maple Translucent Red Finish
As with everything that comes out of the Colling shop, lots of homework and research have gone into their line of ukuleles. This Collings UC3 M is built with a custom Spruce top and beautiful Flame Maple back and sides. Gorgeous appointments include the dot purfling rosette, custom tortoise veneer, custom collings haircut peghead and custom Ivoroid binding finished of with a beautiful Transparent Red finish. On the first strum, it's clear this is a serious, professional level ukulele.
Despite looking like traditional friction tuner, each of the four tuners are actually geared tuning pegs made by Pegheadz. Collings be praised, a ukulele that is easy to tune! 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 uke is truly a great one to add to
any players collection.
