Lanikai's exclusive new TunaUke technology allows any uke player to intonate their ukulele through individual movable wedge saddles and a compensated nut specifically designed for each model size. This easy to use technology requires no tools and improves intonation all across the fretboard by over 90%! The LUTU-11S TunaUke Equipped Mahogany Soprano Ukulele is based on our popular LU-11 ukulele, but with Lanikai’s innovations that improve tone and playability. We upgraded the tuning machines by utilizing diecast tuners which provide improved tuning stability. The compensated, wide-spaced 37mm TunaUke nut not only drastically improves intonation, but also mimics the tonal response of natural bone.
The TunaUke saddle housing mounts directly to the top of the instrument which increases overall projection and a full spectrum of lows, mids and highs. We provide two sets of saddles (low and high) to allow you to adjust your string height to its most comfortable level. The newly designed 8 hole bridge allows for quicker string changes, but can also be used in the traditional classical string tie.
