Ovation celebrates the revival of the Ultra series after 25 years, retaining its original essence and introducing new features designed for singer-songwriters. Available in various colors, the Ovation Ultra is an instrument we had to try in depth.
After 25 years, Ovation celebrates the revival of the Ultra series, enriching the model with a new preamp, a new pickup, and a revamped Ovation sound, all while preserving the original essence of the Ultra. The new edition of this series was conceived with particular attention to the typical needs of singer-songwriters. With a good playing experience thanks to the Mid-Depth/Non-Cutaway body, it comfortably adapts to the musician’s body and ensures a good feeling of comfort during performance.
The Ovation Ultra guitar is available in five different colors: Metallic Blue, Pitch Black, Silver Shadow, Vampire Red, and Yukon Spray. All models come with a sturdy soft case padded with 20 mm thickness, ensuring proper protection and safe transportation of the instrument.
The fingerboard is made of Indian rosewood and features an inlay that Ovation has named “Fleur de nuit“. The soundboard is made of solid A-grade spruce from Germany and is heat-treated to give the guitar a mature and balanced sound typical of a well-played instrument. The eco-friendly UV paint, applied in an ultra-thin layer, enhances the sound by slowing down the vibrational behavior of the soundboard, while the guitar’s neck is composed of two pieces of kahia wood.
Ovation’s mechanics guarantee good tuning stability and easy adjustment. The new K21 CT preamp offers a structured sound, with defined mids and a good separation of the strings, allowing the guitar to blend perfectly with other instruments.
The Ovation Ultra is equipped with the new OCP-2000 pickup, which enhances sound performance thanks to the use of cutting-edge materials and technologies. The combination of a perfected piezo material formulation, precise positioning of the elements and an innovative blend of materials with a higher glass content for the string support, ensures reduced wear and better vibration transmission.
