Pono is now making their 8 string tenor in beautiful solid acacia wood. It's top notch woods, bone nut and saddle, setup extra smooth and with an adjustable truss rod for minor adjustments. This is the deluxe model with gloss finish. Most importantly it sounds great. Take a look and listen to this sweet new model from Pono.

 An 8 string ukulele is played the same as a 4 string so it is easy to jump into, and the feel for strumming is amazingly smooth. With a great setup like this it's also easy to play! If you want a big, rich sound with beautiful chiming tones, then this tenor size 8 string Pono might be just right.

Ko’olau now only include their hard case with the Pro-Classic Pono series but we're including a hard case for a limited time.

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.
