      Martin

      Excellent craftsmanship and solid Hawaiian Koa for a full, authentic sound.

      Martin has built the world’s finest ukuleles since 1916, and tenor ukes since 1929 that have long been prized for their full-bodied voice and great volume. The T1K tenor-sized model features top, back and sides crafted of solid Hawaiian koa, a wood native to Hawaii and a favorite of island players. Entire body is finished in high quality satin lacquer, and features an applied dovetail neck joint. The T1K Uke is a beautiful example of why Martin is still the name in superior quality ukuleles.

      Includes gig bag.

                Comments about Martin Tenor Ukulele Koa:

                This is a solid koa ukulele - not mahogany. Koa produces a bright, crisp, lilting sound and mahogany a warm, darker sound. My Martin T1K sings right up the fretboard producing clear, shimmering notes with excellent intonation. No doubt the compensated saddle is a contributing factor to the intonation, however I did make some adjustments to the out-of-the-box set up. Nicely suited for arpeggiated playing or lovely Hawaiian songs due to the clarity of the individual notes. The rounded over edges of the instrument are a nice feature making it comfortable to play for long periods of time - no indentations in the forearms. The 1 5/8" wide fretboard provides ample room for chording. One could easily pay twice the price for a solid koa ukulele and not necessarly get a better sounding and playing instrument. The Martin T1K mde in Mexico is a superb deal. Now why doesn't Martin produce this in a soprano version ?

                Comments about Martin Tenor Ukulele Koa:

                This is a quality instrument. The build and wood selection are excellent. Very cleanly put together. Tone is subjective, obviously, but I really like the tone. It sounds more full than some other koa ukes to my ears.
                The price is most definitely reasonable for such a well made instrument.

                Disappointing

                • Poor Tone Quality

                Comments about Martin Tenor Ukulele Koa:

                Beautiful wood, good workmanship, and nice gig bag, action was a bit high but that could be easily adjusted. The real problem is the tone--in my opinion,totally lacking warmth. Tried several brands of my favoite "go-to" strings and this ukulele just sounded harsh on them all. Really wanted this to work out but finally gave up and restrung it with a new set of Martin M-620s as originally supplied and returned the ukulele. I would always prefer to buy an acoustic instrument where I could try it out and compare to other items in the store but could not find one of these locally. Next best thing is Musicians Friend with their 45 day customer satisfaction return policy. Musicians Friend Customer Service was excellent as always.

                Given the price, I was not very impressed with its appearance and the tone quality was not what I expected in a Martin instrument.

                  Martin T1K Tenor Ukulele

                  By Willie Rough

                  from Toledo

                  Comments about Martin Tenor Ukulele Koa:

                  I already own a half dozen ukes, even one from Hawaii, and this is the pick of the litter. It sounded great and played great right out of the box. I used it with confidence on a gig just two days after I got it. Had several positive comments on it from the listeners and from the other musicians. Just couldn't be more pleased. Take it from old Uncle Willie; this one's a keeper!
                  Beautiful! When you pull it out of the case, you can smell the Koa wood. Quite pleasant
                  This is the "made in Mexico" Martin. I can't imagine it being any better than a Nazareth, PA model. The Mexicans have been building nylon stringed instruments for a long time; they definitely have the knack.
                  You won't find a better sounding, louder or prettier ukulele for this price.
