OVERVIEW

Affordable spruce and mahogany tenor with excellent projection and response.

Alvarez Regent Series Ukuleles, like the tenor-sized RU26T, have been carefully designed to deliver an open sounding and responsive instrument with good projection, volume and fine tone.

All Alvarez ukes are constructed with a dovetail neck joint for optimal strength and transfer of energy between the neck and body. The bracing design is a modification on traditional fan-style braces to optimize response. The response is also aided by a solid œslotted rosewood bridge, which enhances projection and helps to make string changes easier and quicker.

Other appointments and features include quality-seasoned tonewoods, real bone nut and saddles, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard and premium tuners. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Alvarez RU26T Regent Series Tenor Ukulele:

    Great entry level Uke for the price. Not as nice as my Alvarez guitar but well built, stays in tune and fun to plink. Picked up a hard case for it too. Great fit and perfect add to my 20 guitars, 2 basses, 3 banjos, 2 mandolins and my beat up old antique Uke.

    Comments about Alvarez RU26T Regent Series Tenor Ukulele:

    For the record, this does not seem to have a solid top, as I may have indicated in a previously written review. I wrote the previous review in considerable haste, and made a stupid mistake. Regardless of that I still think this instrument will perform very well considering the price. If this fits your budget, I would not hesitate to give it a try, there's always that 45 day return policy if you don't like it. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I liked it, and did not send it back. Mine is on extended loan to a friend. Don't miss it too much since I have another one. Sorry if I mislead anyone. I have seen lots of instruments with laminated tops that sounded great, like this one does. Not everything with a solid top is totally awesome, and some of those with laminated tops can have very good sound. If the description doesn't specify a solid top, you can be sure it won't have a solid top!

      Comments about Alvarez RU26T Regent Series Tenor Ukulele:

      This may be premature since I received the instrument quite recently from Musicians Friend. Great price for what seems to be a well made uke. I think the solid top does something special with the sound. The new stringing method at the bridge I found to be a bit of a jolt to some one used to old ways, but may prove very nice in time, seems to work, and I think you can have a certain amount of trust in Alvarez to put out good stuff. Where are you going to find a nicer ukulele at this price? Deserves a good case, and decent care.

      Comments about Alvarez RU26T Regent Series Tenor Ukulele:

      I have owned 2 Alvarez guitars and I am as pleased with the Uke as I have been with them. For the money it seems to have great tone and is well made. I'm glad I bought a tenor as it is much easier to play than my old soprano uke.

      All in all I think the RU26T is worth the money. If you are a beginner or just want a Uke to play for fun this is your instrument. (I wish Alvarez would have Yairi make a Uke line.)

      I just need something to protect my new uke in average situations. Nothing fancy. It's a strong nylon gig bag at a good price. That's all I needed.
