From the inventor's of the 6 string, comes the best 6 string! Pictures show the exact ukulele now available.
Also known as "the Liliu," the Tenor 6-String was designed by Sam Kamaka Jr. in 1959 to commemorate Hawaii's statehood and pay tribute to Hawaii's last reigning monarch, Queen Liliuokalani. In 1978, a Liliu was presented to the White House as Hawaii's Regional gift. But this model is not just historical, it makes beautiful music!
Beautiful book-matched koa is shown off by the super smooth semi-gloss finish. A classy, clean look and very easy to play with a perfect setup. A treat to the eyes and ears! Video shows the same model.
At our blog site - TheUkuleleReview - Aaron gives his thoughts on the Liliu Tenor, - The 6 string ukulele, like the 8 string has doubled strings. In contrast to the 8, however, the 6 string has only the 1st (A) and 3rd(C) strings doubled. The biggest difference between the 8 string and the 6 string is that more often than not, the 6 string has a lower octave A rather than the unison A found on the 8 string. This gives the 6 string a distinctly different voice than both the 8 and 4 string ukuleles. I have found this voicing to lend itself well to jamming with a guitar player due to the difference of the “sweet spot”. The “sweet spot” occurs when contrasting frequencies blend together to create a harmonically rich, but not cluttered sound.
This one we just received is exceptional, as you can see, don't miss out on this incredibly fun instrument. It's surely one of the nicest Kamaka's we have had in the shop!
Comes with a deluxe Kamaka case and Oasis humidifier
