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.

We have built up a loyal clientele for our Gold Standard in Ukulele Setup. We ensure you get the absolute best for your money! This includes saddle and nut heights, fretwork, intonation checks, and many more things to make these instruments play, sound, and look as great as possible. For this middle price range; it means you can really get close to a high-end tenor feel from our work. And always, we are dedicated to giving you honest and expert service and advice!

    Setup Options

    Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide, at no extra cost, on all ukuleles we ship out. However, this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We now offer "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options, along with current turnaround times for each, at the link- HERE. 

    One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Humistat, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc..), or areas with winter seasons, especially if you are heating the air in your house. For more info refer to the ukulele care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, you need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed.
