#Lanikai Legacy Thinline Concert #Ukulele with TunaUke Technology!

We are delighted to have a limited stock of the Lanikai Thinline Concert Uke with TunaUke Technology *

What Lanikai says: 

Traditional Solid Spruce tone meets Lanikai’s Intonation Innovation in our new Spruce Series TunaUkes! TunaUke Technology’s compensated nut and movable saddles improve intonation up to 90%, while Spruce and Mahogany construction ensure your uke plays, sounds, and intonates better than ever before! This Limited Edition Thinline SOTTU-C Concert Ukulele features a Solid Spruce Top with Okume Back and Sides. Appointed with Abalone Rosette, fingerboard inlay, and custom rope-style binding this ukulele’s beautiful sound is complimented perfectly by it’s gorgeous appearance – a must-have for any collector or performer.
*TunaUke Technology – A Ukulele Revolution!
The sweet tone of the ukulele has been heard around the world – from the most prestigious stages to the most remote beaches, leaving a smile everywhere it goes! In the midst of all of that joy however, one problem has always remained – ukuleles have terrible intonation!Play a simple chord and a ukulele sounds beautiful – but play something more advanced, play with other instruments, or move further up the neck and the problem becomes clear. If the ukulele was to claim and keep it’s place as a world class instrument, it’s intonation must be fixed!Three years, and a fleet of mechanical engineers later, Lanikai Ukuleles is proud to present TunaUke! A revolutionary system that improves ukulele intonation by 90% and opens a new world of possibilities for writing, performing, and simply enjoying a more-musical ukulele than ever before!
Two Features Driving Intonation Innovation
The first is the Compensated Nut! Between the four strings the differences in string width and tension are substantial. By compensating the distance between the first fret and the nut we are able to make open chords sound as smooth as silk.
Those Saddles Move!
The second feature is the Movable Saddle: Traditional straight saddles on a ukulele or any other fretted instrument are detrimental to good intonation. With nylon strings even “compensated saddles” are a complete fallacy. The issue is that nylon strings are by their nature, inconstant. After much testing we found the only way to improve on this is to create movable saddle technology to allow the player to adjust the amount of compensation for each string. No tools are required and adjusting the intonation is as easy as pouring milk on cereal.
Keep On’ Strummin!
There are many issues that cause poor intonation and TunaUke Technology solves them all. With this technology we have achieved over a 90% improvement! For the first time ever in the history of the instrument you can overcome all the obstacles and have a ukulele that plays open chords in tune all the way up the neck.
