Thread: New Martin 2K Soprano Ukulele...

  1. #1

    Default New Martin 2K Soprano Ukulele...

    Here is my new Martin 2K Soprano Ukulele, it has beautiful front, back and sides flamed Koa wood, mahogany neck, grained ivoroid binding with black/white top inlay as well as ivoroid peg tuners, hand inlaid Black and White Wood fiber rosette (black-white-black-white-black), white side markers at 3, 5, 7, 10, 12 and 15. Mother of Pearl fingerboard position markers at 5, 7 (2 markers) & 10, ebony compensated saddle and ebony nut. Bridge Material is East Indian Rosewood. It has a satin finish. Martin strings M600.

    It has a great sound, it is louder and brighter than the S1 and Style 1 100th anniversary, and has a great sustain!!! By far my favorite Martin!!!

    Congrats on the purchase and it's a great looking uke! You've got my UAS kicking in telling me I need a Martin soprano, lol.

    Congrats very nice looking wood, must sound sweet.

    What is the tonal difference between this and a Kamaka?

    Congrats. I've had the pleasure of owning both a vintage and a modern 2K. Lovely, lovely, instruments. Wish I had not sold the modern one. Enjoy!!
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."
