At Ukoo, we have invested hundreds of hours in acoustic tests and new developments for each individual model in order to guarantee the best quality of our high-quality ukuleles. In addition, we have optimized the wood, amplifier position, bridge and balance in order to achieve a clear and powerful sound with every game. This not only affects the sound, but also the mood when playing.
Our concert ukuleles are a must for music enthusiasts and perfectionists who place great value on sound quality and insist on a high-quality instrument. Our large selection and the different models are ideal for professional players. However, ukulele beginners will also have fun with it, because it is easy to learn to play and the sound of the instruments is definitely convincing. You can use it to hold a concert or practice in your home as a beginner.
A beautiful body made of the finest tonewood combined with die-cast chrome tuners and our unique sound ports give every Ukoo ukulele an elegant and distinctive look to complement its performance. When you buy one of our ukuleles, you receive a musical instrument with perfect workmanship as well as a designer piece and eye-catcher.
Sound ports are powerful
A sound port is an added hole pierced in the ribs of a guitar or ukulele. This gives the sound much more breadth. A comfortable feeling that the instrument is freer and more sonorous.
However, if the hole is too big, you lose the definition in the treble and the sound is more diffuse. That’s why it’s so important to accurately determine their size.
The place where the hole is drilled is also very important for the way the sound is played around the instrument.
On our instruments we get a very good balance between depth, power and brilliance by adding two small moon-shaped sound ports.
The wood makes the color
The wood is one of the key elements for the sound. Because of its density, weight and elasticity, it determines in itself a color to the sound.
We researched and experimented with many combinations. We appreciate Koa because it’s very traditional and noble. The mahogany is beautifull and also excellent for tone.
Okoume may be less classic but it’s really surprising for its scale and acoustic performance.
We optimize all parts
After many acoustic comparisons we have researched what length of touch allows the instrument to breathe better. If you try, you will find differences, but finally the cut of the bridge is perhaps even more important for the sound.
Another very important thing about electroacoustic instruments is the place of the preamp. By moving an eraser of identical mass on the ribs, one finds that a few centimeters more on the left or on the right can change much the reasoning.
