    Default NUD: Martin C1K

    I received this yesterday from a seller on eBay. It's used, but it's in perfect condition. For the price (under $400), I couldn't resist. It sounds great, but it has no smell, unlike the Konter, which smells beautiful.

    Congrats, mine smells of fresh wood shaving though, made in 2017. The sound hole smell level should be part of the listing specs for Martin ukes.

    I thought of sticking one of those green smelly trees that some people hang from their rear view mirrors into the sound hole. I could change the scent every few weeks. Air Freshener.jpg

    That would work great I can imagine that. A sachet of dried flower petals and aroma wood twigs may be more natural smelling?

    Nice photography. I like how the background color sets of the wood tone.

    Congrats. I hope you enjoy it. I'm getting to know mine as well.

    What strings do you have on it?

    Mine came with the Martin M600's and I recently changed to the Martin Premiums (M610's) based on UU member recommendations. They're still settling, but I think I like them better.

    I have no idea what they are, but they're clear.

    Sorry, but that sounds revolting. You could just use your choice of fragrant wood chips.

    You did notice the at the end of the post, didn't you?

    I wouldn't even put one of those things in my car.

    Yeah, they should make those little deodorizer trees with a koa smell!
