The High Pressure Laminate from Martin gives laminate a good name! They are still warm, full, rich, with a lot of tone! Laminate can often sound generic and boxy, but not when it comes to the Martin HPL series! But they are also stable in all temperature and humidity conditions making this a more stable ukulele that can take travel and harsher climates better than their all solid counterparts! So you get tone, the quality Martin build, but with the added necessary stability! Also, neck set in relation to string action is something I worked closely with Martin on and therefore the action is dialed in, buttery, and easy to play!!!
Part of our X Series, this beautiful-sounding ukulele has top, back and sides made from durable high-pressure laminate (HPL). We hand-selected the finest Hawaiian koa to give this instrument the rich grain pattern of a much more expensive ukulele. But, because it is made from HPL, you can take this concert uke anywhere—the beach, the stage, a road trip— and your only worry will be what song to play next. It may be our lowest-priced uke, but you’d never know it from the way it looks and sounds.
