Description

Design, sound, and function are all key elements in creating the finest ukuleles in the world - but it's the attention to detail that sets Lanikai apart from the crowd. Built with hand selected tone woods directly from the Big Island of Hawai'i, Lanikai's SMPTU-C Solid Monkeypod Concert Ukulele sounds just as beautiful as it looks.

On top of that, Lanikai's critically acclaimed TunaUke Technology solves the age old problem of poor intonation on the short scaled ukulele with up to 90% improved intonation. Innovation, tradition, and detailed design make the SMPTU-C a premium choice for the independent minded ukulele player ready for an instrument as unique as their own sound.

Performance ready with looks to match, as only Lanikai can deliver.

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, Lanikai 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, Lanikai has 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.
