UFOS – Ukuleles From Outer Space

UFOS Ukuleles From Outer Space

UFOS belong to a colorful alien ukulelomorphic race: they need your help to complete the Earth invasion and to spread their Cosmic Aloha Power through the Solar System!

UFOS willingly accept to be held and cuddled by humans, you can play them just as if they were electric ukuleles: the action is very comfortable so the strings are nice to play, the sound is highly manageable through Earth’s systems like guitar amplifiers and pedals.

FEATURES

Standard UFOS are built with 6 pieces of solid mahogany: the headstock, the neck and the 4 wings of the body.
The wood and a laser cut black PMMA plate are joint to the aluminium core that gives stability to the whole instrument.

Colored laser cut PMMA details are applied to give a personal look, pick your own! I like to use some particular fluorescent acrylic sheets: the ukulele will shine in the natural light, but try to put it under a black light…Surprise!

The fingerboard is made of Blackwood Tek, an ecological substitute for ebony, and much care is reserved for its making. The neck is very peculiar, since it is a half wood and half aluminum piece, it has also an unusual D shape but it is very smooth.

The sound is supplied by a passive piezo pickup put under the corian saddle. The combination of a non-vibratile body and a piezo pickup produces a very manageable signal, highly resistant to feed-back. An external preamp is not mandatory but it is recommended for better results.
