All Solid Woods - Slotted Headstock - Ebony Arm Bevel - Beautiful Inlays

This is a new tenor with a value like we've never seen. When you look at it and play it, you expect it to be much more expensive!

This tenor features an all-solid Sitka Spruce top and a Pau Ferro body. Sitka spruce has long been the most used and loved soundboard tonewood for musical instruments. Pau Ferro, aka, Bolivian rosewood, has a density between rosewood and ebony, and pairs perfectly for an excellent tone and projection on this uke. 

It's framed off with ebony bindings as well as a smooth arm bevel for extra comfort when holding and playing. Ebony is also used for the bridge and fretboard with a beautiful inlay made with abalone, pearl shell, and recon stone. It's the most "custom looking" affordable uke we've found and it sounds great too!

This instrument is made with all natural materials, bone nut and saddle, real shell inlays, and wood bindings. It has a glassy finish showing off the beauty of the woods, but the neck is satin finish for smooth sliding up and down the fretboard. The headstock is a unique design from Mauloa called the "U classic". Very attractive and these are built with an excellent understanding of ukulele construction for stability and resonance. This includes features you can't see like an advanced bracing system and a carbon fiber reinforcement in the necks. 

Mauloa tenors feature the 1.5 inch width at the nut that gives a tiny bit more room for your fingers and is preferred by many for clean comfortable playing. 

The D'addario strings they come with have a nice warm balance. But for more volume and clarity we suggest the Ko'olau Aho upgrade. This really depends on your style and taste but we will have more videos coming with different string options. 

We set up each instrument to ensure you get the absolute best for your money! This includes the following: saddle and nut heights, fret work (usually planing or dressing), intonation checks, and a thorough inspection for cosmetic flaw. This is crucial for this middle price range; you can really get close to a high-end tenor feel from our work. We are always dedicated to giving you honest and expert service and advice!

We always include a humidifier with solid wood instruments. However, if you live in a dry area, or use indoor heating or cooling for part of the year, please upgrade to the Oasis humidifier to properly protect this solid wood ukulele. For this instrument, we are including a deluxe gig bag. You can switch to a canvas covered hard case here,  upgrade to a wooden case in the cases section. Any of our tenor cases will fit this one well and you can use the discount $20 on those listings.

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.

When you buy this ukulele you can get an UkeCrazy gig bag or canvas covered hard case at an additional discount.  (Not required but suggested.) The UkeCrazy gig bag and canvas covered hard case can be seen in our cases category under the accessories tab at the top of this page. Other cases can also be chosen there. 

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360, 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. 

Put a note in the special instructions, if you have any preferences that our setup or shipping department should be aware of. 

After adding this instrument to your cart, create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

Under the accessories tab customize this instrument by adding strap button(s) or your choice of pickup for plugging in. 

Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your cart reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free UPS 2 day shipping. 2 days is the time in transit. Before being shipped, your instrument will first go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money.
