Pono MGT8 Solid Mango Tenor Eight String!

The new Pono MGT8 is an all solid mango wood tenor eight-string. It is the highest quality eight string you will find for this price. It has all solid high-grade mango, bone nut and saddle, and after our setup is as smooth as you will find. Also, the adjustable truss rod is a great feature for the eight-string ukulele. Often the tension will require minor adjustments and the MT8 is the only eight string on the market with a 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 right inside the soundhole with an allen wrench provided. Especially with eight-string, it is a very useful option to have, and a very easy thing to adjust with little room for error.

Pono is a value line from the custom ukulele makers – Ko’olau. This tenor 8 string is made of all solid mahogany and has that bright full sound the 8 string is known for. The G and C are octaves apart and the E and A are doubled in unison. An 8 string ukulele fingerings are the same as a 4 string so it is easy to jump into, and the feel for strumming is amazingly smooth. If you want a bigger, richer sound, with beautiful chiming tones, then this tenor size 8 string Pono is for you!

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) 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.
