A fun buy

Comments about Lanikai LU-8 Tenor 8-String Tenor Ukulele:

The uke itself looks real nice. Very sharp looking, with pearl (looking?) tuners, gold gears, and slotted heads. I would suggest buying an 8 string replacement set of strings and restring it when you get it, cause the factory did a so-so job.I am pretty satisfied with this uke. Its a great size and shape. The sound is truly where this uke shines. The different octave strings are a treat and give it a truly unique sound and doubling the strings really gives this uke a ton of volume.My only qualm with the uke is that its hard to keep it in tune. Although, I restrung it and its getting easier to get it back in tune. If it stayed in tune all the time, or most, I would have given this 5 stars. I bet you could take it to a local guitar shop and see if they have any recommendations. If you have a chromatic tuner, though, each string is only ~half step out of tune when you leave it for a day, so it takes 5 minutes to get all the strings back in tune for a fun session.Really good uke. Its really growing on me. The sound is where this uke shines, like I said, so if you can deal with the minor inconvenience of having to tune up every time, you'll be happy you bought it.

What a kick!

By Dale Jones

Comments about Lanikai LU-8 Tenor 8-String Tenor Ukulele:

This is a sweet instrument that has a marvelous tone. It's not really a uke; not quite a guitar either. It's hard to say just what it is, but I love it. If you don't have an eight-string uke already, then here's your chance.
