Description

Details

This all mahogany tenor is a popular choice at HMS. It has a wonderful sound and feels great, the essentials that every player needs to be passionate about playing. For a solid tenor in this price range, the MTD is hard to beat. If you want a "meatier" sound from your ukulele, or even if you have a really expensive uke but want something to take around that sounds really good, this is an excellent choice.

Kris gives us a raw sound sample with the stock Ko'olau Alohi high wound 3rd set.

The tonal character of good mahogany has been loved since ukuleles first started being made. When built right you get a full mid range with good clarity and warmth, just right for many players.

How is this model different than the MT? This deluxe model has gloss finish, a really nice gloss finish! It has ebony freboard and bridge as well.

A key feature in all of the 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 right inside the soundhole with an allen wrench provided. This is something you will probably not need to adjust. But over time and with humidity changes, it is a very useful option to have, and a very easy thing to adjust with little room for error.

Photos and video are stock typical.

Options

Right now we are including a free canvas covered hard case. This canvas 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 with an additional discount for the upgrade. 

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. 

Another option is to switch from high G tuning (like in the video) to low G tuning. This is a blog article discussing it if you are not sure whether you want High or Low G?

Put a note in the special instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything. 

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.

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18).
