A ukulele with some classic rock attitude.
The Pa'ina uke features all-solid mahogany top, back, sides, and neck and an onboard passive pickup for extra...
The ukulele is an instrument that can bring out a lot in anyone's imagination. Some might think of a Hawaiian beach with white sands and rolling waves, others might fondly remember learning to play it in grade school. A concert performed with an acoustic-electric ukulele just might become a similar memory for your audience. An acoustic-electric ukulele plays like a standard uke when it's unplugged, giving you the traditional laid-back mellowness that the instrument is known for. With the ability to plug it in to an amplifier, however, these hybrid designs make it possible for your ukulele to be heard in even a large venue, as well as expanding your repertoire by allowing you to use effects units. You might also appreciate being able to record directly from the ukulele in your home studio, eliminating the need for a microphone. Like traditional ukuleles, acoustic-electric models come in soprano, concert, tenor and baritone sizes. Choose one with a standard sound hole if you like the classic style, or a dual-soundport model to direct the sound two ways: to yourself and to the audience. To give yourself better access to the extreme end of the fingerboard, take a look at a ukulele with a cutaway body design. For those just beginning with the ukulele, another thing you'll want to pay attention to is whether your instrument comes with a case. Some include a case, and for those that don't, it's a good idea to get a gig bag or case to protect it during transit. To get everything you need to start out, consider the bundle from Luna Guitars that includes a ukulele, case, stand and an extra set of strings. An acoustic-electric ukulele is a solid choice for a musician of any level, from novice to veteran. These instruments will give you the mellow, tropical sound that the ukulele is known for, as well as opening up the door to 'plugging in' and getting all the advantages of an amplifier or mixer while you're at it.
