This tenor has a big warm tone and after our setup work is a smashing value! This is like their MT-4 but with added top and back tortoise binding framing it off as well as the rosette. Features the classic Kanile'a pin bridge and headstock for a wonderful look. It also has a pickup with onboard EQ.
The Islander also has the Kanile'a 1.5" nut width of allowing a little more space when compared to the 1 3/8" most companies do. That aspect makes it popular for those with larger hands or just players that want more space for chording.
Corey gives a raw sound sample of the MT-4-RB.
If you are looking for an attractive and affordable tenor ukulele with a full tone and a pickup, this Islander MT-4-RB-EQ may be just right!
"The Islander Mahogany Series Ukulele offers a very bright yet balanced traditional Hawaiian tone that is so synonymous to this wonderful instrument. Our time-honored approach allows these instruments have a very clean, authentic ukulele look to them."
What is our "setup"? We don't make these ukuleles. We make them better! This includes saddle and nut heights, fret work (planing/ recrowning/ polishing), intonation checks, and a thorough inspection for major cosmetic flaw. You can usually find some kind of sign of human construction with these, so if you're super picky about that, this might not be your perfect uke. But we first weed out any obvious cosmetic or structural issues, then the setup work we include for free dials in the feel and tone and that's where this value will be hard to beat. The current special is about as good as it gets.
