This series features Mahogany tops, backs, and sides for the traditional look and tonal characteristics. Our exclusive “Dual Port System” projects sound to the audience and player. Moving the front sound port away from the center of the soundboard helps to increase volume, tone, and sustain. Die cast tuning machines and perfect fret leveling keep them in tune and play easier than ukes costing much more. The EUC-5NS Concert model comes with the Boulder Creek UK-300T preamp and pickup system with built-in tuner.
The Deluxe Mahogany Series is designed for the most discriminating players. All models feature Mahogany backs, sides, and tops. The model EUC-5NG features a solid mahogany top for even more tone and sustain. All Deluxe Mahogany Series models are equiped with the UK-300T preamp system with built-in tuner. (Except model UC-5BC) The beauty and playabilty of these models has to be seen and heard to believe. Do you want just another uke or do you want a Boulder Creek Riptide? That’s what we thought.
All Spruce & Rosewood Series feature Solid Spruce tops for the ultimate in tone, volume, and sustain. The backs and sides are made of Rosewood. Our exclusive “Dual Port System” is also standard. Die cast tuning machines are also standard. All Acoustic Electric versions also feature the Boulder Creek UK-300T preamp and pickup system with built-in tuner. These models also feature abalone binding around the body and both sound ports. The incredible finish and detail work on these fine instruments is second to none.
Acacia, known for its relaxed, island-sounding tone, comes from the Koa family. It has a textured look created by grain patterns in the wood. Riptide’s signature “Dual Port System” allows sound to flow to the player and the audience. Moving the front sound port away from the center of the soundboard increases volume, tone, and sustain. Our UC-11NS also has Abalone binding on the body and Rosette surrounding the front sound port. The satin finish gives this instrument a classic look and won’t show fingerprints.
