Description

Details

Being the first uke in the popular X-Series there was always going to be high expectations of the Martin OXK Ukulele, but it doesn’t disappoint. Shaped to the original soprano shape, which is also the smallest ukulele size, the OXK’s top, back & sides are constructed from Hawaiian koa-pattern high pressure laminate (HPL).

A warm and powerful tone

It’s only fitting that the wood from which the Martin OXK Ukulele is constructed shares it origins with that of the instrument itself. Aside from that fact it is also a great choice, offering a clear and precise tone, atop a blanket of warmth. The overall sound sits between the properties of maple and mahogany, being loud but mellow.

Martin’s well-known guitar manufacturing expertise is also apparent with the Martin OXK Ukulele, as it sports solid sitka spruce braces and mahogany end blocks, which along with the hardness of the kao, result in a strong guitar that is capable of loud and lasting sustain.

Strong and durable

The stratabond neck of the Martin OXK Ukulele is known for being especially strong, and being joined to the body of the uke via a dove tail joint, ensures a sturdy instrument. The neck has been carved to a comfortable C-shaped profile, with an average depth. This is topped by a morado fingerboard with 17 frets, measuring 1-13/32'' at the instrument’s White Tusq nut and 1-13/16'' at the 12th fret and is matched with a morado bridge. At the other end of the Martin OXK Ukulele you have a solid headstock with a koa wood pattern HPL finish and Grover nickel tuners with white buttons.

Finally, the Martin OXK Ukulele also comes readily supplied with a padded gigbag.

Reviews
Posted on 10/06/2018 by Having read Bazs' review on 'got a ukulele' I had to buy and so pleased I did. He was so right,I can't put it down ! and the fact that it is a HPL construction means I won't worry so much re temperature changes and travel.
I did have to change the strings as one came undone from its journey from the USA. Now strings have settled its fab.
