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 its 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 there is 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.

Being in tune is priceless

Comments about Lanikai CMTU-T Curly Mango TunaUke Tenor Ukulele:

I'm one of those musicians that can't stand out of tune instruments.... especially when in the hands of talented musicians (who some of, for the life of me can't understand, don't hear their out of tune instrument). Although this may be a laminate constructed uke (not certain), I'm liking the appearance as well as the sound. I haven't played an all wood uke yet, so I do not have that trained ear to critique in this respect. Regardless of tone woods, the tune a uke is a must have for me going forward. I'll buy another.

    Comments about Lanikai CMTU-T Curly Mango TunaUke Tenor Ukulele:

    I'm rather new to the ukulele, but my seasoned friends were very impressed with tone and ability to stay in tune. I was a little nervous about what I would get as a "stupid deal" and it really exceeded my expectations. Be sure you order a case because it's really a work of art.
