OVERVIEW

The easiest way to record your uke.

The Lanikai Solid Spruce Top Tenor Ukulele with USB adds modern convenience to an already fantastic instrument. It comes equipped with Fishman electronics that capture every nuance of your playing and offer dual outputs, 1/4" for your amp and USB for your PC or Mac. Anytime you want to record just plug into a laptop or desktop computer, launch your recording software and press record. No other interface is required and you can shape your sound with the Fishman's 3-band EQ or always be in tune with the onboard digital tuner.

The tenor body is made of beautiful Hawaiian koa with a solid spruce top for excellent acoustic tone and features rosewood binding on the top and back. Its mahogany neck has a rosewood fingerboard and binding with elegant mother-of-pearl black inlays. Other refinements include a rosewood bridge, bone nut and geared Grover gold-plated tuners.

    Comments about Lanikai Solid Spruce Top Tenor Ukulele with USB:

    This is the second ukulele I've purchased. I have a Kala KA-15S that I love, but I was looking to branch out into some different sounds. After doing months of research, I settled on this ukulele and I have no regrets.

    This uke has terrific sound acoustically--deeper, mellower, and yet more muted than my soprano--and great intonation up to the 12th fret. Beyond the 12th fret is off a bit, but most ukes are at that point. No fret buzz. It's a bit heavy with the 9V battery installed (not included) in the preamp, but that's to be expected with all the electronics inside. It all seems securely attached and doesn't rattle around at all. I had some musician friends look over the uke and they were all impressed with the quality and sound.

    I would have been very happy at this point, but then I plugged it in to my amp (cord not included). Wow! What a fantastic electric sound! This is going to be great for performing at open mics. But of course, I had to also test the USB, which is a huge reason I chose this model. I plugged it in to my Windows laptop with the USB cord that comes with the uke, after already having opened Audacity. (You do have to tell Audacity to search for new inputs, but you can Google how to do this--takes less than a minute to figure out.) Worked like a charm! In just a few minutes I was recording my uke directly to my computer and laying down clean tracks with no hiss or background noise.

    I can't speak to longevity or durability since I've only had this for a week, but I can hardly put it down. It's easily the most versatile and fun uke out there. Your only regret will be not snatching up one of these ukes while you can.

      It was a nice uke in every way but I could not deal with its inability to remain in tune for more than one song. Had to send it back.
