Martin S1 Soprano
All Solid Mahogany
Ukulele / Uke
I can not say enough about the Martin 1 series ukuleles! With the Martin build in the all solid mahogany body, these ukuleles sound just as an ukulele should sound. Warm, punchy, rich, and full with a remarkable projection for a soprano! You will love your Martin S1. The Martin florocarbon strings makes playing this ukulele light to the touch, with a lot of crisp attack for finger picking and smooth strumming projection!
The Uke you See is the Uke you Get!

Mass produced ukuleles come with "factory settings". There is no time to set the uke up for the individual buyer. Often they err on the side of high-action (strings are high over the fretboard), unlevel frets, and buzzes go unnoticed because they have had no individual attention. I take personal time with each uke I sell. All ukes get a nut and saddle adjustment, and the frets are leveled. They are also checked for fret buzzes, intonation problems, and other issues that can be resolved in the set-up process. The action is lowered to an ideal and comfortable level. You can feel the difference between a non-set up uke and a uke that has been through the "Mim Set Up Process". I have repeat customers world-wide because I have worked hard to have the reputation that a uke from Mim is going to be "right". The set-up process can cost a lot through your local luthier and often they do not know the specifics that go into a good uke set-up. I only sell ukueles, so my set-ups are custom tailored to your uke, the brand of uke you purchase, and the uke size. There are so many nuances to ukulele setup that are very uke specific. And I have been selling setup ukuleles for over 9 years! If you need a uke set-up Low G, or Lefty, let me know. I can do that for you... no charge! If you have an issue with arthritis of if this purchase is for a child or beginner player, let me know so I can be even more meticulous with the set up of the nut! It is really important. I set up the uke for YOU the buyer and ukulele player!
