This is a new model koa tenor in from Kumu, a line from our friends at Leolani. We've carried their ukes in the store for over a decade now in the store, and they keep getting better and better! So we are now offering them here on the website for all of you to experience these excellent instruments with our specialty service, the Gold Standard in Ukulele Setup. This tenor has a slimmer body which makes it easy to reach around. Even with the slender body, it has a sweet tone we think you'll love.
Features include high-quality Hawaiian laminate koa over mahogany, real abalone, and fitted with a bone nut and saddle. The "TUX" finish is a smooth semi-gloss natural look and feel that shows off the beauty of the wood. But, there's an added bonus with this uke, a new breakthrough in fun.
The pickup system is a new collaboration from Leolani and Double. It's an under saddle active pickup system that sounds great for amplifying or recording, but it's much more than that. It gives you really beautiful effects; reverb, chorus, and delay and they are adjustable and tasteful. You can use them plugged in OR NOT plugged in! Even without plugging in, playing with the effects is great! It ranges from fun to inspiring and we think you're gonna love it!
Kalei goes over this new instrument along with the electronics and options.
This pickup allows the player to have complete control over the sound and audio effects of their ukulele, even when unplugged from the amp. 4 control dials: volume, reverb, chorus, and delay. A built-in rechargeable lithium battery gives about 10 hours of playtime. To recharge, plug in the included quarter-inch cable to a USB charger. 2 hours time for a full charge. There will eventually be a time to replace the lithium battery. With regular plugged in playing that can be expected in 3-5 years.
