Martin Guitar delivered a host of new products for 2021 announced recently at NAMM’s online event We Believe In Music.
Building on the ever growing popularity of this instrument, Martin has launched several new offerings, appealing to both newcomers and serious players with a range of price points.
OXK Concert Uke
Part of Martin’s X Series, this beautiful-sounding ukulele has top, back and sides made from durable high-pressure laminate (HPL). Martin hand selected the finest Hawaiian koa to give this instrument the rich grain pattern of a much more expensive ukulele. But, because it is made from HPL, you can take this OXK Concert Uke anywhere—the beach, the stage, a road trip— and your only worry will be what song to play next. It may be their lowest-priced uke, but you’d never know it from the way it looks and sounds. SRP $299
Concert UKE FSC
Built for serious players who want premium tone in an environmentally friendly instrument, this concert-sized ukulele features top, back and sides made from 100% FSC®-certified mahogany. You can feel good knowing that all the wood in this ukulele is responsibly sourced, and you’ll look and sound even better. It’s constructed with an applied dovetail mahogany neck for extra stability, it sports Ratio® tuners—a new feature on Martin ukes—to get you in tune quickly and accurately, and its satin finish adds the perfect amount of shine. Set the right tone for the planet with the Concert Ukulele FSC. SRP $2399
T1 Uke Streetmaster
Martin been making tenor-sized ukuleles since 1929, but nothing quite like this. An ultra-thin finish creates a beautifully weathered appearance that feels as if it’s an old friend you’ve been playing for years. The top, back and sides are all mahogany, making it lightweight with a bright tone. If you play guitar and want to learn the uke, this size makes for a comfortable transition, and it’s great for both a child and full-grown adult. The T1K StreetMaster® brings together premier sound, outstanding playability, and easy affordability in one gorgeous instrument. SRP $449
