Makala - MK-C - Concert Ukulele

This package includes one Makala Concert Ukulele, Electronic Tuner, Concert Size Ukulele Gig Bag, a Woodstock Ukulele Sling and the 'Clifford Essex Mini Ukulele Tutor'. The instrument comes to us fitted with the standard plastic saddle, we remove this and replace it with a buffalo bone saddle, thus greatly improving the tone.

 

If you're thinking of playing the ukulele, we recommend the Makala MK-C. Particularly if you're able to spend a bit more than the minimum. This solid agathis wood ukulele offers a full-bodied tone with plenty of ' nice sweet highs” and 'deep mellow lows' that combine for a full rich sound.  Geared tuners assure your instrument will keep in tune. These instruments have a clear, beautiful sound. They are set up by dedicated craftsmen here at Clifford Essex, so that all ukulele players, from beginners to advanced can play confidently.

 Like many other companies we could stock hundreds of different musical instrument brands but that is not our policy. We only stock products which we feel are excellent value for money. We also ensure that every instrument is set up perfectly before it leaves our premises. Many times customers have brought us instruments purchased on line which even a professional could not play simply because they have not been set up properly prior to being sold. If you purchase an instrument from us you can be sure that when it arrives it will be set up perfectly and be ready to play.

Geared tuners that stay in tune.
Frets dressed and polished.
Fretboard oiled and waxed.

This booklet is intended to be a very brief but useful introduction to the basic technique of playing the ukulele as an accompanying instrument. The tuning used is the most common one: G, C, E, A, and examples are given in both notation and tablature. It cannot be stressed too strongly that a beginner should start by learning the correct techniques of holding the instrument, striking the strings, and the proper position of the left hand.
