Collings UT2 K Koa Tenor Ukulele
Handcrafted in Austin, Texas, Collings Ukuleles' are a player's dream and the vintage collectibles of the future. The UT2 K is Collings' gloss lacquer finish tenor model with increased appointments. With solid Figured Koa top, back and side wood, the Collings UT2 K comes standard with the Collings trademark ''haircut'' peghead shape and ivoroid body binding with black/white purfling.
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.
The craftsmanship is truly unmatched. The sound is full, punchy, resonant with lots of sustain so the notes can be worked with great finesse. It loves vibrato and loves to be played.
