Lanikai NKTU-C Solid Koa TunaUke Concert Ukulele Koa
Design, sound, and function are all key elements in creating the finest ukuleles in the world - but it's the attention to detail that sets Lanikai apart from the crowd. Built with hand-selected tonewoods directly from the Big Island of Hawaii, Lanikai's new NKTU-C Solid Koa Concert Ukulele sounds just as beautiful as it looks. On top of that, Lanakai's critically acclaimed TunaUke Technology solves the age-old problem of poor intonation on the short scaled ukulele with up to 90% improved intonation. Innovation, tradition, and detailed design make the NKTU-C a premium choice for the independent-minded ukulele player ready to for an instrument as unique as their own sound. Performance-ready with looks to match, as only Lanikai can deliver. TunaUke Technology - A Ukulele Revolution! The sweet tone of the ukulele has been heard around the world - from the most prestigious stages to the most remote beaches, leaving a smile everywhere it goes! In the midst of all of that joy however, one problem has always remained - ukuleles have terrible intonation! Play a simple chord and a ukulele sounds beautiful - but play something more advanced, play with other instruments, or move further up the neck and the problem becomes clear. If the ukulele was to claim and keep its place as a world-class instrument, it's intonation must be fixed. Three years, and a fleet of mechanical engineers later, Lanikai Ukuleles is proud to present TunaUke, a revolutionary system that improves ukulele intonation by 90% and opens a new world of possibilities for writing, performing, and simply enjoying a more-musical ukulele than ever before. Two Features Driving Intonation InnovationThe first is the compensated nut. Between the four strings the differences in string width and tension are substantial. By compensating the distance between the first fret and the nut we are able to make open chords sound as smooth as silk.
