Making its first major appearance in the USA at the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Fair in San Francisco, the ukulele continues to delight and attract fans of every age, gender and skill level. Little has changed in the design over the years proving that it’s never a good idea to change something that works! The mahogany series offers five of the most popular ukuleles sizes to meet the demands of any player whatever the inspiration. From soprano, to Concert, Pineapple to Baritone, you get the same great quality and the same great price.
The Diamond Head Mahogany Student Ukuleles maple ukulele, finished in a warm brown mahogany hue, really looks like an expensive ukuleles, but is really more affordable than you think. You get a classic look, the right sound, all for an affordable price without sacrificing tonal quality or playability. The maple we use imparts a crisp, bright edge to the otherwise warm, airy island sound that is most familiar to all.
It is often assumed that affordable ukuleles are more “toy-like,” than taken seriously as a bonafide musical instrument. With a Diamond Head Mahogany Student Ukuleles, the same attention to detail that might only be found in more costly instruments is applied to each and every model in this series. The body shapes are correct, the scale lengths are perfect and from all angles, the construction is clean and will exceed expectation every time.
Features and Fittings
The DU-200 is a series of mid-level instruments that have that classic look – regardless of body style – that will immediately appeal to the individual who wants a look with features found on more expensive instruments. All this without the higher price tag…with Diamond Head you don’t have to more for quality…its all in the design. The rosewood fingerboards have accurately spaced and smoothly polished frets, while the gold-plated guitar-style, geared tuners provide a level of accuracy that planetary-style tuners cannot match.
