Collings Ukulele UC2 Custom Rope Purfling ID-6211
Collings UC2 Custom Rope Purfling
We are convinced that Bill Collings could build anything he set his mind to, and create it superbly to the highest standards. This is a custom Collings UC2 Concert Ukulele and is a fine example of Collings craftsmanship. The solid Master Grade Wide Grained Spruce top features a beautiful custom Tangerine sunburst that is complimented elegantly by the custom ordered rope purfling and Ivoroid Binding. The custom features Collings has to offer on there ukulele's, and all of their instruments, really set them apart from most and create for a exceptionally beautiful instruments, both aesthetically and sonically.
This Custom Collings UC2 features bell like tones, off the chart on the decibel meter - yet warm and sweet... Like listening to a music box on steroids. The mahogany provides clarity and a strong "ping" or punch, with exceptional string balance.
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.
