5K Uke

no. 105KUKE
4.5 out of 5 Customer Rating
With the rise of Hawaiian music in the late 1910s, Martin began making ukuleles. The line expanded from mahogany to more elaborate Hawaiian koa models. A soprano-sized model, the 5K Uke is the ukulele equivalent of a Style 45 guitar – the top of the line. The 5K Uke is crafted with solid highly-flamed Hawaiian koa top, back and sides finished in a polished gloss, and trimmed with abalone pearl appointments. High quality, beautiful tone and ease of playability make the 5K Uke a joy to own.

MARTIN Ukulele Strings

Martin's ukulele strings offer an easy playing feel, excellent tuning stability and a warm clear tone. The high tensile fluorocarbon holds tunings longer and improves harmonic output for consistent true tone. Experience the small but mighty sound of Martin Ukulele strings.


Martin Soprano and Tenor ukulele strings are made with clear fluorocarbon. Our Baritone ukulele strings are made with clear fluorocarbon, aluminum wrap wire, and silver-plated copper on nylon.
