The Redwood C76E is an excellent electro acoustic ukulele which has a real classic sound whether it is played straight out of the box or through an amplifier. The preamp system is fully capable of translating the timbre of the uke without compromising on tone or resonance. With a 23 inch scale body and 18 frets to play with, this concert style ukulele would be a worthy addition to anyone’s collection of string instruments.
Unlike some of the other ukuleles in the Redwood range, the back and sides of the C76E model are constructed out of laminated sapele tonewood which has an amber, luscious striped appearance which contrasts beautifully against the natural body top. As the sapele wood has been laminated, this means that the ukulele will be better equipped in handling changes in temperature or humidity, so this is a huge advantage for performers wanting to take the C76E on the road. Sapele is a very sustainable type of tonewood which is often compared to mahogany but it has its own unique features. Sapele tonewood in a uke can produce rich bottom end notes to sizzling and sparkling high ends, and with somewhat more definition than that of a mahogany counterpart.
Accompanying the sapele back and sides is a solid spruce body top which has a stunning, natural finish and has the capacity to resonate freely for a thorough sound.
A mahogany neck is firmly fitted to the body of the C76E ukulele and is furnished with an 18-fret fingerboard with dot position inlays to guide you to play confidently. It feels ever so comfortable to play, and the rosewood fingerboard feels smooth and slender.
Redwood have appointed chrome plated die-cast machine-heads and tuners on the headstock to ensure that tuning integrity is upheld with precision and accuracy.
BELCAT UK-500T PREAMP SYSTEM
Redwood have assigned a UK-500T Belcat preamp system to the C76E model, thus making it an electro acoustic so you have the option to plug into an amp and play louder. The Belcat UK-500T is equipped with a built-in chromatic tuner, a three band EQ and low battery notifier, and you can easily see the settings on its LED display. This preamp is very well assembled to ensure that the acoustic timbre of the C76E ukulele is properly translated when plugged into an amp.
The inclusion of a built-in chromatic tuner is extremely convenient in aiding you to accurately tune your ukulele strings wherever you may be, and the LED display means you can also retune your instrument on a dark stage with no fuss.
The Redwood C76E electro acoustic concert ukulele is a fantastic choice for any player or performer looking to enhance their collection of string instruments.
