Keiki® Ukulele Packs
The exclusive Keiki® K3 Series with selected tonewoods gets three new models: K3-ACA with an acacia top, the K3-SPM with spalted maple and the K3-WEB with a white ebony top. Apart from their sleek look, the ukuleles have a well-balanced and rich tone. The ukuleles come with a headstock tuner, a soundhole hook strap/support, 5 medium picks, and a drawstring bag.
GAUCHO SERIES Ukuleles
Originating from the Spanish word “Gaucho“ which describes brave and
unruly South American horsemen, our Gaucho Series represents this spirit
of discovery and freedom. With four vintage finishes in platinum gray,
green apple, orange, sky blue, and the teardrop pickguard, the instruments
are a departure from traditional ukulele design. All models include
a color-matching Ortega Guitars gig bag.
PRIVATE ROOM SERIES UKULELE
The DSSUITE-UKE is our first ukulele addition to the exclusive Private Room Series. A solid Alaskan spruce top in a distressed tobacco finish, worn edges and varied chrome tuning machine adorn this ukulele. Played unplugged, the instrument has a mid-range, punchy tone, but its full potential is reached when played through an amplifier. The DSSUITE-UKE comes with a deluxe gig bag.
Custom BuilT SERIES UKULELE
The brand-new HYDRA-BSTE from the Custom Built Series pushes the boundaries of stringed instrument design! Combining a four-string uke bass and a tenor ukulele, this new HYDRA model offers flexibility and unlimited musical possibilities to be explored by singer-songwriters, bass, and ukulele players. Ovangkol top, back and sides, combined with built-in electronics with tuner, this HYDRA double neck is road-ready and soars when plugged into your favorite amplifier of sound system. A deluxe rectangle gig bag is included.
GAUCHO SERIES Guitars
Originating from the Spanish word “Gaucho“, which describes brave and unruly South American horsemen, our Gaucho Series represents this spirit of discovery and freedom. With four vintage finishes in platinum gray, green apple, orange, sky blue, and the teardrop pickguard, the instruments are a departure from traditional nylon-string guitar design. The guitars have a smaller parlor body, which is very comfortable to play. All models include a color-matching Ortega Guitars gig bag.
REQUINTO SERIES Guitars
Rooted in Mexican and Latin American traditions, requinto guitars are smaller versions of the classical guitar with a shorter scale length and a notably deeper body depth. Our Requinto Series guitars are not only suitable for Trío romántico groups and traditional folk music but are also great instruments for acoustic performances, where amplification is not possible, as they are much louder than a traditional small body guitar. The Pro models feature a solid top and come with a deluxe gig bag.
FAMILY SERIES PRO Guitars
Our new R55 guitars present an affordable entry into our solid-top guitars. Well balanced tone and exceptional playability make these instruments suitable for any playing style. The option of a classy Bourbon Fade finish will appeal to students young and old.
Signature SERIES Guitar
With the help of Thomas Zwijsen, we created a series of instruments that truly stand out with stunning looks and a pristine, signature sound. Featuring a solid Canadian spruce top, striking spalted maple back and sides, and a bright maple fretboard, this beauty offers a timbre that is perfectly suitable for various musical styles. The built-in Ortega Clasica Blend system, and the included signature gig bag with an embroidered logo complete this package, and offer an excellent, affordable entry to our signature models.
PRIVATE ROOM SERIES Guitar
Originally released for our 20th anniversary in 2014, this extraordinary guitar will get an honorable revival with the RSM-REISSUE in 2021! Equipped with an eye-catching spalted maple body, this highly collectible model from the Private Room Series is not only a visual treat, but also a sonic achievement! A deluxe gig bag is also included.
FALCON SERIES BANJOS
Our traditional Falcon Series of banjos will be expanded with four new models in 2021. These new additions feature a built in pickup with volume control and a stunning, fresh look with a gorgeous quilted maple resonator in four transparent finishes. A deluxe gig bag is also included.
PERCUSSION SERIES KALIMBAS
Ortega handmade Kalimbas combine the legacy of its African origin with modern appointments. Carefully selected, spectacular looking tonewoods, ergonomically shaped handrest and a crystal clear tonal experience encourage unlimited creativity and musical enjoyment. Our Kalimbas are available in three different designs, all equipped with solid wood, 17 keys in a C major tuning, and a comprehensive accessory set. The OKB2 and OKB3 offer a front soundhole, which enables you to implement a pulsing sound effect in your Kalimba performance, when pressed against your body.
Our newly designed accessories range offers top quality, attractive looks, maximum functionality and exceptional quality. The accessories feature new capos, vegan straps, digital wireless systems, coiled cables, picks, a comprehensive collection of tuning machines, string winders, cleaners, guitar & ukulele hangers and jean color bags.
