KUC-MAD Concert Ukulele Mahogany - Natural (High Gloss)
Concert 23" Ukulele - 20 Frets
A concert ukulele is often the preferred size for professional ukulele players, giving a good depth of tone and strong projection, while maintaining the light mellow character the ukulele is best known for. With 20 frets and a 23 inch length, the Concert uke is the third smallest of the ukulele family, and is an perfect choice choice for a more advanced player looking for an instrument that can hold its own on stage. The use of quality tone woods including Indian Rosewood and Mahogany give the KUC-MAD great projection and tonal depth for an instrument of its size.
Traditionally associated with the pacific islands (Hawaii in particular), the Ukulele is a small nylon-stringed guitar-shaped instrument that has long been a feature of folk, traditional and pop music. Songs like "Tip-Toe Through The Tulips", "Ukulele Lady" and "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" have been recorded and performed many times using this wonderful, mellow toned instrument. So popular is the ukulele that many well known artists like Eddie Vedder, Mumford & Sons, and of course Kermit the Frog have all recorded tracks using it.
Ukuleles, like guitars, have tuning pegs on the headstock to adjust the string's tension. The difference is in the pitch of the strings, which are tensioned to G (high) C E A.
All SWAMP KU Ukuleles come with a cotton-lined gig bag to protect your instrument on the move.
