Identical in every way to our traditional-style koa tenor 8, except for the epaulet soundholes. (“Double-puka” soundboard design makes it slightly louder, more unique-looking.) Entirely handmade professional-quality instrument at a fraction of the price of any other brand-new handmade solid Koa tenor 8 we’ve seen anywhere.
26″ long, 19 hand-set, leveled and crowned nickel frets. Grover precision-geared nickel-plated die-cast tuners. Ebony fingerboard, nut, bridge and binding, Corian saddle.
The tenor ukulele is the size you’ll see most professional ukulele players use, whether at a luau or in the recording studio. It has a bigger, fuller tone and more range than soprano or concert-sized ukes. The 8-string has become more and more popular since the first ones came out in the late 60’s because of its full sound (4 of its 4 strings are doubled, and because it’s just as easy to play as a 4-string.
