Pono ATD - Acacia Tenor Deluxe

Quarter Sawn Solid Acacia Wood -Gloss Finish

This model from Pono gives us quality and musicality never seen in this price range. The ATD is has rich tone, great sustain, a wonderful feel, and beautiful solid acacia wood. 

Acacia is a family of trees that Hawaiian Koa belongs to. This is not Hawaiian Koa but comes from a very similar species. Ko'olau is exacting in their woods being quarter sawn and dried properly. This is an essential factor to the precision you experience with the Pono ATD. 

Photos are stock typical. You may request photos of the one you will receive after purchase.

The ATD is dynamic. It will work with any style of music, any popular set of strings. Great with a low G, showing off a robust lower range, or with a high G for that classic uke tone like you heard from Kalei above. This all solid wood tenor ukulele with a refined classic style, glossy exotic woods, and a beautiful voice.

A key feature in Pono tenor and baritone models is the dual-action adjustable truss rod. This is used to stabilize and adjust the lengthwise forward curvature (also called relief), of the neck. It can be adjusted from inside the soundhole with an allen wrench provided. Over time and with environmental changes, it is a very useful option to have and easy to adjust.

The ATD is an excellent value on a professional quality tenor ukulele. It has less flash than some of the other models, but the wood is gorgeous and the tone is very warm and sweet, and the construction is meticulous. We are sure you will agree!

When you buy this ukulele you can get a UkeCrazy or Oahu case at an additional discount.  This is not required but suggested. These cases can be seen, in our cases category, under the accessories tab at the top of this page. Other cases can also be chosen there as well after adding this to your cart. 

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 are now offering an "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-32) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area.(parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc..) or also 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, then you also 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 need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything. 

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

Under the accessories tab you can also 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 FedEX 2 day shipping. 2 days is the time in transit, your instrument will first go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money. For more information on our setup process, turnaround time, shipping, and return policies, refer to the links below at our footer.
