Beautiful koa on that UT-2K!!!

I have a UT-2 in all figured mahogany and a UT-2 custom with a beautiful select spruce top, mahogany back qnd sides and all ebony appointments, that I recently purchased here on UU.

How would you compare the tone of the koa to the tone of the mahogany?

Beautiful uke congratulations!

The first thing I noticed is the Koa is brighter then the Mahogany but I like the tones of both. The Koa seems to have a richer tone also.

I wouldn't call any Collings average. If someone does then they don't know what their talking about.

Hi Mark,

Daniel has a Moore Bettah from Chuck Moore that's spectacular. I'm just teasing him because he never even saw my Collings. Once you have the Holy Grail uke, everything else is average to you so I clearly see Daniel's point of view.

Thanks for posting better pictures of your new UT2-K. You gave it a very nice place of honor between your two Mahogany Collings.

Best regards,

Don

Hehehe...Don is right, after getting my MBU and LFDM, the Collings couldn't compete in my OPINION...Don, you must have listened since you are getting a LFDM and you would LOVE to get on Chuck's list.

Don also got a CR and I have never played one and will hold judgement since I don't want to say I "heard" it was good but that is the one of two brands I would really love to try, the other being a Devine.

I was just kidding also but I do consider Collings the holy grail Of ukes and of course that's my opinion only. By the way thank you for such a nice one.

Mark, you know I am in the minority since Collings can't make enough and they don't last long in the used marketplace.

Not sure exactly what you meant by that.

No. Moms not getting this one Dana. Actually she gave me the other UT-1 back because her 80 year old fingers just couldn't do it so now I've got one with low G and the other high G so it worked out pretty good.
