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.

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!

Wow- great value

Great value for the money. Better tone and build quality than some Koa Ukes made for 3 times as much. Mine has beautiful flamed Koa on the back and sides which I was not expecting at all. I have a vintage Mahogany Uke and this thing is twice as loud. Very sweet tone that rings out! The nut and bridge are Tusq which is a very nice addition, as well as the Grover open gear tuners. Honestly this is a pro quality Uke, was not expecting it to be this nice!

Great quality at a reasonable price

I've had this now for a few months, and continue to be impressed with the quality of sound, and the projection not found in lesser ukes. The satin finish of the solid koa is stunning. As always, I'm also more than pleased with the Sweetwater experience. Ask for Aaron C. - he's the best!

Great service as usual!

Purchased a special order Martin T1K uke from SW. The uke arrived packaged beautifully, without a nick or scratch. Played great right out of the box. It has great tone and is easy to play though the action is a bit high and I am going to experiment with some different strings. Next stop is the luthier to put in the LR Baggs electronics. The booklet was missing, but one call to SW and they Fed-exed me the booklet immediately. These guys take customer service seriously. My sales rep Jim is great to work with! Martin uke and SW - great combination!

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.
