Lanikai Ukulele: LU-21 Standard
by Guitar Guru
”Sweet Woody Tone at an Even Sweeter Price”
If you like the sweet woody tone of a soprano ukulele, then the Lanikai LU-21 is the ukulele you’ve been looking for!
While the Lanikai LU-21 is made with the same Nato wood as the Lanikai LU-11, the rosewood fingerboard and bridge give this little number a sweeter tone that cuts down on the tinny tone, giving the LU-21 a flavor that you will find appealing.
Bringing to mind tropical islands and slow dances in grass skirts, the Lanikai LU-21 is a tribute to the Hawaiian tradition and it is the perfect size to take with you anywhere you go. It will be just as much at home around the campfire as on the beach under a palm tree. Seriously, a soprano-sized ukulele can easily fit into a backpack (with room to spare) which is what makes it such a popular instrument when it comes to traveling.
Mind you, the Lanikai LU-21 is not a top of the line instrument. And while it’s affordable at just ~$75, its tone pales in comparison with the Silver Creek All Solid Soprano Ukulele
. Of course the Silver Creek costs about $75 more than the LU-21. But for the serious musician, the difference in tone is worth the cost.
Regardless of which soprano sized ukulele you decide to purchase, you are going to want to protect your purchase with at least a Soprano Ukulele Gig Bag
(which can be had for just $12.99 extra). Of course if you opt for the Silver Creek, you’re going to want a
Hardshell Standard Ukulele Case
, which will run you another ~$39.
If the cost of the Silver Creek is out of your reach, however, the Lanikai LU-21 is definitely a good alternative and can introduce you to the fine world of ukulele music.
