Maton UKECONE

Maton UKECONE
The Maton ukulele is the result of combining the best of traditional ukulele design with 21st century production techniques. This instrument draws on Maton’s extensive background in the use and fine tuning of Australian tonewoods to produce a tone which is rich, full and intriguing, and which evokes the timeless sounds of the classic Hawaiian ukuleles of time gone by.

Victorian blackwood has long been a favourite tonewood at Maton and it was decided from the beginning that blackwood would be the best timber for the ukulele bodies, not least because it is a close relative of Hawaiian koa, the traditional wood for the construction of ukuleles. The back, sides and soundboard are made and braced as lightly as possible so that the instrument is super responsive to every note.

The Queensland maple neck is shaped for maximum comfort and is designed to be a tone enhancing as possible. The CNC produced Indian rosewood fingerboard features top and side dots and is fretted with Dunlop 6260 nickel silver fretwire for ease of playing and brilliant intonation.

The Indian rosewood bridge is based on some classic old ukulele designs with the intention of creating as much vibration as possible in the soundboard. Underneath the soundboard is an elliptical shaped spruce bridge plate which is designed to spread string vibration as evenly as possible and to reduce stress points developing around the bridge.The use of bone as a nut and saddle material is time honoured and is particularly effective on a ukulele as it helps to emphasize the elusive lower and mid frequencies can often be lacking in such small instruments.

Gotoh’s light weight UK700 tuning heads are the perfect match for this instrument. The 1:15 ratio provides excellent control over tuning while the geared mechanism is so much easier to use than traditional friction pegs.

Aquila’s Nylgut strings provide excellent tone, stay in tune and intonate perfectly. They replicate the warm but bright sound produced by the gut strings used in days gone by and so complement this beautifully.The concert model has a scale length of 14 ¾” which provides ease of playing and great tone.

The Maton Concert Ukulele is finished in Maton’s tuned satin pre-catalyzed nitro finish which provides maximium protection for the delicate tonewood without inhibiting tone or volume.

The unique Emfit® film material used exclusively in every B-Band pickup has proven to be unsurpassed in delivering absolute acoustic tone and the individual characteristics of the instrument.The R series UST pickup has unparalleled sound quality and a very robust ribbed structure for durability. The pickup is physically ultra thin and flexible making for easy installs usually without modifications to the saddle or saddle slot. The ribbed construction also enhances string balance for quicker installations.B-Band UST pickups are so thin and lightweight they do not interfere with the string’s signals passing through the saddle and bridge retaining the original acoustic sound and voice of the instrument.

The B-Band U1.3T sidemount single input preamp with fully chromatic tuner has smallish dimensions to fit at the side of most any ukulele. The preamp also features rotary controls for volume and tone, Tuner ON button and low battery LED. The preamp is one-piece, drop-in installation format.
