View Full Version : Ronroco Pablo Richter for sale

07-21-2016, 12:36 AM
Hey Folks,

At first sorry for my english writing as I am a french native speaker :-).

I'm kind of "new" here even if I got the opportunity to buy a very nice Toda Ukulele from Andew (elliottauk). Here is the link to his post : http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?109065-For-Sale-Toda-Concert
Andrew and I made a good transaction and would be glad to reiterate but this time as a seller.

And then sorry if I make a mistake choosing the forum section because I'm not selling a ukulele but a Ronroco (a big Charango which can be compared to a baritone ukulele and with a DGBEB tuning, 5x2 strings).

A the moment I play ukulele a lot. I play my 2 Toda's ukulele and I need to ration my musical intruments collection.

My Ronroco was built by Pablo Richter at the beginning of this year.
Pablo Richter is famous for building some of Gustavo Santaolalla's instruments.

I received this Ronroco in May 2016. This is a premium/custom model and is in very good condition.

Here are the specs :
Top : spruce and mahogany.
Sound box : Chilean Rauli, spruce and walnut pressed in 5 parts
Neck : Paraguayan cedar, Chilean raulí and walnut, pressed in five parts.
Fingerboard : Ebony
Finish : semi-mate

Here some photos of the ronroco which is for sale (no stock photos) :


At the moment I can't record any sound myself (gonna try to find a solution..) but I give you two links to videos to let you listen to pablo richter instruments :
- Gustavo Santaolalla playing "De Ushuaia a la Quiaca" : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9iQ0pcSVIM
- MvA playing "Open" : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAN_WWovE58

I payed this instrument 1100 euros + 300 euros for shipping and duty.

I'm looking to clear 900 euros which equates to around US$1,050, plus shipping. PayPal is fine, if you take the fees.

Please do not hesitate if you have any question.

Sorry guys, I made a mistake. On the fist video Gustavo Santaolalla is not playing a Pablo Richter instrument (Gustavo plays so many instruments from different luthiers). But it gives you the oppotunity to listen to the ronroco played by a Master.

Here is another video to make you listen to Pablo richter ronroco sound : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVRG2at0IOg

Please, can you measure the scale length, i.e. the length of the vibrating string, which is from nut to saddle?

Thanks, as it's very hard to tell the size of the instrument from the videos or photos relative to concert (15"), tenor (17") or baritone (19-21") ukulele.

Also, do you think this could be strung in fifths tuning, (nylon strings of course) like an octave mandolin with a low-C, as in


with unison pairs of strings...

as I'm looking for an instrument to tune this way, but never seen the Ronroco before your post here....

Hi Booli,

The Scale length is 446 mm.
Concerning the tuning you propose, I really don't know, sorry.

I could be interested in trading it for tenor uke.
Please also check my post about my Toda concert sale.
