OVERVIEW

A compact nato body and top with die-cast tuners and Fishman Kulu electronics.

The LU series represents Lanikai's most popular and affordable ukuleles. They are a perfect first stop for acoustic multi-instrumentalists looking to expand their tonal palette or the first time player just beginning their lifelong love of music. The LU-21CEK Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele with Fishman Kula Electronics is an ideal size, compact yet still able to produce volume. The concert size was developed as an enhanced soprano, slightly larger and louder with a deeper tone. It features a nato body and top and a rosewood fingerboard. Die-cast tuners help make tuning easy and stable. This model comes equipped with Fishman Kulu electronics. All LU series ukuleles include an instruction booklet to guide you into these easy-to-learn instruments.

Fishman Kula Electronics
The sleek design of this preamp lends itself well to the ukulele and fits everything you could ask for in a preamp. With a three band EQ, you™ll be prepared to please any crowd by adjusting the low mid and high range to your liking. Never search for your clip-on tuner again! The Kula preamp features an on-board chromatic tuner so you can tune up wherever you go.

    Best Christmas gift for my husband -- bright, consistent sound, easy on-board tuner, and extremely high-quality sound, plugged in or fully acoustic. Stock strings are even good!

      Comments about Lanikai LU Series LU-21CEK Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele with Fishman Kula Electronics:

      I bought this uke for a creative switch to writing songs on guitar/piano. It's great because even though the chords are shaped differently...The base skill set of guitar transfers easily making this an instrument that you can grasp and play in very short order.

      It has helped in a creative writing because the chords voices are just a little different, opening up other thought processes.

      I have little insight into whether this is a good instrument to take on the road or play at a concert, but for my recording setup here at the house the onboard electronics sounded great. Hilarity ensues when you run it through a metal pedal and a 2x12 combo.

      The amount of joy this instrument brought me far outweighed the cost. The onboard tuner is just so nice to have. I will say that I wanted more beefy strings and bought some replacements.

        Comments about Lanikai LU Series LU-21CEK Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele with Fishman Kula Electronics:

        My daughter took her LU21cek off to college so I needed one. I bought one at the end of January just in time for FAWM 2015 and I have already written/recorded three songs with it in the first few days of February.

        After I bought, I saw a video where someone was ranting about the poor intonation of a LU21 soprano, so I was a bit worried. Luckily the intonation on mine is pretty good. My daughter's has developed a little buzz on the second string (E) so I have to keep an eye on that. I haven't tested the electronics yet, but for the on-sale price, I decided it was a good gamble! I am pleased so far.
