Collings UT2 Tenor Figured Mahogany
The UT2 is Collings' 2-style mahogany tenor ukulele. The Collings UT2 comes standard with the Collings trademark ''haircut'' peghead shape and ivoroid body binding with black/white purfling. With a figured mahogany top, back and side wood, the beauty of its wood and enhanced appointments rivals its sonic complexity.
The bindings on this Uke are tortoise, 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.
