Recording King


At the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago, the Century of Progress theme was displayed on products from cars to guitars. Recording King has created the Century33 Set which includes a limited edition guitar, mandolin and this ukulele – all inspired by the unique designs at the Fair.

Recording King's RUC-9-TS Century33 Limited Edition Soprano Ukulele #3 has a solid spruce top to give you maximum soundboard vibration. Its geared nickel/ivory tuners and a tobacco sunburst finish add to its vintage visuals. The RUC-9-TS Century33 Limited Edition Soprano Ukulele #3 also honors the earlier 1915 San Francisco World's Fair, when the first mainland ukulele craze began. Sweet tone and background, all wrapped up in a look one can't find anywhere else. 

In the 85 years since that Chicago World's Fair, Recording King has been known as a choice for players that understand great value and don’t have to run with the pack. The Century33 Set takes solid tonewoods for great sound and matches them with an unmistakable looking pearloid fretboard for a truly unique trio of instruments.
