There are four common types of ukes out there: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. The soprano was the original, followed up quickly with the concert size uke. The 15-inch scale length and slightly larger body size deliver a deeper tone and a bit more volume, while maintaining the sweetness and instantly recognizable ukulele sound.
The Lanikai LU Series
Lanikai's most popular and affordable models, the LU series features classic designs and beautiful wood, with plenty of attention to detail. All LU series ukuleles include an instruction booklet to guide you with these easy to learn instruments.
Nato Top, Back, and Sides
Nato, often referred to as "Eastern Mahogany," delivers wonderful playablility and tone without an accompanying high price tag. Used with Ukeleles, it provides a nice, pronounced mid-range with a mellow high-end.
The body of the LU-21C features white binding, for a nice contrast/framing of the red-tinted finish, and an all-around beautiful instrument.
Just as with guitars, rosewood makes an ideal fretboard tone wood for ukes.
Lanikai's die-cast tuning machines provide solid tuning, so strum away confidently.
