Great ukulele tone from Hawaiian koa

The Martin C1K Uke's robust tone comes courtesy of its solid Hawaiian koa top, back, and sides. The hardwood neck is ideal for the transfer of string vibration to the koa body, for a warm and rich sound.

Longer scale length for easier playing

The 15" scale length of the Martin C1K concert uke gives you more room for playing chords and single notes. This is perfect for people with larger fingers or guitar players getting into ukulele. You won't feel as crowded on the fretboard with the Martin C1K Uke!

Warm, gorgeous instrument

The Martin is gorgeous and plays warm, lovely tones. I love it!

Wonderful sounding instrument, and a great value!

I've been playing guitar for 30+ years, and this is my first ukelele. What a great little instrument! It sounds wonderful, with a sweet voice that is very balanced, and there is nice definition of both chords and single notes. It plays easily and looks fantastic in the satin finish. The nut and frets could be finished a bit better, but at this price point it hardly matters. Great fun to play-highly recommended.

Beautiful Sound with Martin Quality

What a sweet sounding ukulele. I'm a beginning ukulele player but have owned Martin guitars in the past. I was initially a little concerned that this is made in Mexico but I trust the Martin name and decided to go ahead with the purchase. You can trust Martin. The C1K is constructed to Martin's high standards and in every way worthy of the Martin name. I'm happy with my ukulele!

Spectacular Sounding Concert Uke, Great Craftsmanship!

Honestly, this is as good as it gets if you want an all-solid Koa Concert Ukulele without any fancy inlays or binding . As I mentioned in my S1 review, If you want fancy binding, inlays and designs, sure you can spend more, but not get any better tone. And this looks as classy as it sounds! The C1K came new in the box with the always reliable Sweetwater check over to ensure everything was as it is supposed to be and it top form! A quick tune up after stretching out the strings some more and this was ready to play out of the box. What a beutifil sounding and playing Concert Ukulele! As I typically do, I later sampled several different brand Strings including D'Addario and Aquila. On this C1K I again went back to the Martin Fluorocarbon strings that come standard as they sounded the best to my ears. I highly recommend this great Martin Uke that can be played for lifetimes and be an heirloom to future generations of your family too! My top recommendation!
