Pono MTD Solid Mahogany Tenor!

This all mahogany tenor is a popular choice at HMS. It has a sound that rivals the most expensive ukes on the market. The nut and saddle are bone, and the tuning keys are very high quality. The feel is great and the tone is professional.This is exactly what every player needs to be passionate about playing. For a solid tenor in this range, the MTD is hard to beat.

  • If you want a "meatier" sound from your ukulele
  • or even if you have a really expensive uke, but want something to take around that sounds as good.... 

check out the new Pono tenors. This model is an excellent value and we are confident it will get you what you need!

How is this model different than the MT? Gloss finish and Ebony Appointments

Ko’olau now only include their hard case with the Pro-Classic Pono series. You can still have that package with their Oahu case. You can trim down the price with the UkeCrazy hard case. Also, these add no shipping - Add On Packages- good value case/accessory packs!

Simple with beautiful tone! The Pono MTDX. We always include a humidifier with solid wood instruments. This is not an option, and we do not charge for it.

A key feature in all of the Pono tenor and baritone models is the dual-action adjustable truss rod. This is used to stabilize and adjust the lengthwise forward curvature (also called relief), of the neck. It can be adjusted from right inside the soundhole with an allen wrench provided. This is something you will probably not need to adjust. But over time and with humidity changes, it is a very useful option to have, and a very easy thing to adjust with little room for error.

Extra Options

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18). This is suggested if you live in a low humidity area.(parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc..) including cold winter areas if you are heating the air most of the day and night. For more info see our Ukulele Care link at the bottom of the site

With the purchase of this ukulele, the Pono passive pickup system can be installed.

None of these options are required. You can still create a package with accessories on the site by going to different product pages and adding to cart.This ukulele will automatically come with a Herco HE-360 Humidifier. The options are just for convenience and to offer an extra discount while you buy this instrument.

Put a note in the special instructions if you want it strung with a low G at no extra charge or any specific setup instructions(i.e. string for left-handed, I play light and like very low action etc....)
