Redwood have built another impressive string instrument which comes in the form of the T79CE ukulele which is kitted out with a remarkable preamp system and has a striking dark wood finish for a truly natural appearance. You can plug in and play with no hassle for a fantastic ukulele experience.
To best meet the sonic needs of the ukulele, Redwood have used laminated acacia wood to enable the ukulele to produce a wide range of tones. A solid acacia wood top is fitted to the body and this is an integral part of its construction as it helps to project a full-bodied sound with a wealth of volume. Acacia wood is from the koa family and generates sparkling high ends and is great for fingerstyle players. You can also see how the tonewood blends itself on the body top, from below the soundhole, past the bridge right through to the lower bout of the body, which is truly unique in itself.
The T79CE is given abalone binding on the body and purfling which gives the ukulele a distinct finish against its solid acacia wooden top.
The tonewoods have been finished with a smooth satin coating, which allows the artistry of the acacia to shine through. Also, laminate tonewoods are better equipped when it comes to handling changes in humidity and temperature so the T79CE won’t let you down when you’re out and about.
The neck is steadily fixed to the body and has a 19-fret fingerboard with abalone dot inlays and binding. The single cutaway in the body of the T79CE ukulele provides you with easier reach to the upper frets too, so you can get to the high notes with no fuss.
At the top of the neck the headstock features gold geared machine tuning heads which uphold tuning accuracy and integrity on each string, and it has a classical style appearance.
BELCAT UK-500T PREAMP SYSTEM
The Belcat UK-500T preamp system furnishes the T79CE so you can plug into an amp and play with volume without compromising on tone. The preamp system includes a three band EQ and a built-in LCD tuner.
The built-in tuner helps you to constantly achieve precise tuning with every string so you won’t have to worry about hitting a wrong note. This preamp also has a low battery LED indicator so that you are aware of when to switch it off.
Ukuleles have become increasingly popular over the last few years and we’d highly recommend the Redwood T79CE due to its high quality sound and appearance as well as its fantastic onboard electronics system.
