Have you ever tuned up your ukulele and played one chord in tune then switch to another chord and it plays out of tune? The strings are stretched and the open strings are in tune, but for some reason that second chord plays out of tune… Well my friends that is what is called poor intonation!

It’s been well over 100 years the uke’s been in Hawaii and besides exotic woods, pickup/preamp, and cutaways nothing has improved the overall intonation until this came along. The compensated nut and adjustable saddles are a must have for all uke players.”

No Tools Required.

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.

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.

How it’s done.

This video will show you how to quickly and easily lower the saddles (and string action) on any Lanikai TunaUke. Check it out!
