The Lu-21BEK is based on the best selling Concert Ukulele offered by Lanikai with added professional grade Fishman Kula electronics for playing in louder environments featuring an on-board tuner and three band EQ. This handcrafted ukulele is made with Nato wood (otherwise known as Eastern Mahogany) on its top back and sides. When this wood choice is paired with the Rosewood fingerboard it brings out a mellow tone with an enhanced mid-range that is often missing in instruments in this price point. The LU-21BEK also comes stocked with die cast tuning machines geared 14/1 for easy tuning. If you have never played ukulele before get ready for a world of fun. The ukulele is an addicting instrument that can and will be taken everywhere. The standard tuning on a Soprano, Concert, and Tenor ukulele is GCEA, and on a Baritone DGBE. If you can play one ukulele you can play them all! With the easy playability, and included instruction booklet written by Mary Lou Dempler you will be playing in a matter of minutes then you’ll see why people are saying Lanikai Makes Me Happy!
