Product Description

The Lu-21T is the best selling Tenor Ukulele offered by Lanikai. With the attention to detail and easy playability it is easy to see why. This handcrafted ukulele is made with Nato wood (otherwise known as Eastern Mahogany) on its top back and sides. When this wood choice is paired with the Rosewood fingerboard it brings out a mellow tone with an enhanced midrange that is often missing in instruments in this price point. The LU-21T also comes stocked with die cast tuning machines geared 14/1 for easy tuning. If you have never played ukulele before get ready for a world of fun. The ukulele is an addicting instrument that can and will be taken everywhere. The standard tuning on a Soprano, Concert, and Tenor ukulele is GBEA, and on a Baritone DGBE. If you can play one ukulele you can play them all! With the easy playability, and included instruction booklet written by Mary Lou Dempler you will be playing in a matter of minutes then you’ll see why people are saying Lanikai Makes Me Happy!

He's a beginner, but the sound seemed nice and finish was very good.

Inspired by bands like Beirut and Noah and the Whale I decided I wanted to learn to play ukulele. I bought this one because its the same one Zach Condon of Beirut plays and its a decent price. I am always afraid of being disappointed when I buy things online because pictures sometimes are misleading. Not in this case though; if anything, the picture doesnt do this ukulele justice! Its beautiful, and sounds just as pretty! It even comes with good strings (aquila). 5 stars!

This is my 3rd Lanikai Uke. I have a soprano and a concert size. I decided to add the tenor to my collection and try playing it with a log G. I know the is a low end instrument and I've heard you get what you pay for and that it is hit or miss with Lanikai. The soprano and concert was excellent sound and shape so I thought I'd order another one. After getting the strings stretched and holding tune it sounded great. I returned it because the quality of the instrument was low. I know this isn't a high end Uke but the fret board was smeared with the frets cut off improperly. The body of the instrument had saw marks that were sanded down before finishing but you could tell it wasn't good enough. The tuning pegs were out of alignment as well. I plan to return it and order from a different vendor.

Not too bad but not excellent either.
I think they shipped it with the saddle cut too low when it should be shipped higher so you have some opportunity to adjust it. After a month of being tuned up the strings started making contact with the frets at the 10th fret. I purchased a Graphtech Tusq saddle and that fixed that issue and brightened the instrument a bit, not much. The instrument is a bit tubby sounding and doesn't produce harmonics very well above the fifth fret. That is just the hefty construction which didn't help much with the neck settling, which will happen.
Not all that cheap and not all that great but certainly good enough for strumming. If you are more ambitious in your playing than just using it for comping go up a level or two for greater playing satisfaction.

Best purchase of 2011. This thing is fun. If you are stuck between soprano, concert, and tenor, and you have bigger hands choose tenor. If you want to pay $100, buy this one. I have not tried the spruce top model, and I don't doubt the sound is great - But as far as I can tell, the LU-21T sounds very good. Out of the box the uke was ready to play. The set up is good - action is not to high. I have not found any buzzing frets or dead notes.

In sum, I am very pleased.

I ordered this ukelele based on the recommendations here on Amazon, but was very disappointed with the quality of the "craftsmanship" -- one string would not hold tune no matter how many times I continued to retune it. Additionally, there were small scratches and scuffs over the wood -- in all, it looked factory made and cheap. Sound was okay, but I had a hard time loving playing this instrument. Invest in a better uke, OR see it first at a local guitar/uke shop before you buy--

Edit: *The price has since dropped, and seems range of quality of tte instrument, I'd say it's probably worth another star* I don't play uke anymore, but I still believe if you want to learn an instrument, you should invest in a really good one that you love, so that you play it as often as possible.

I started playing the Ukulele in April after borrowing one from a friend. I spent some time shopping for one of my own and was trying to decide between a Lanikai and Kala brand instrument. I read other reviews online and finally decided on this Lanikai Tenor.

So far I have been pleased. It took about a week for the instrument to stay in tune for more than 10 minutes at a time, and I was worried it was a faulty instrument. After some reading I discovered it's a natural part of the string stretching process. Since that time, it has done much better.

The instrument itself is good quality and has a decent sound. I sometimes get fret buzz, but that's largely due to my inexperience and improper technique. I would recommend this instrument for any beginner and have had tons of fun learning to play the Ukulele.

Construction is OK. Not the best, not the worse. Tone and intonation are fairly good. I did not know that Hohner co-owned Lanikai otherwise I might have a bought a different brand as Hohner is a brand name which has always been associated with very inexpensive instruments. I bought this for my teenage son and he has really taken to it. My classical guitar teacher also teaches Uke and did some modifications to the nut and bridge to lower the action as it was fairly high. He filed out the lower note strings at the nut and shaved the bridge. It was interesting to discover that when he removed the bridge there was a shim placed underneath it at the factory. Like I said, it's really a Hohner and not a Lanikai otherwise I would have expected higher quality standards.

This was a gift for my son for Christmas, but before he left he tuned it and played a few chords. He's a beginner, but the sound seemed nice and finish was very good.
