Lanikai Ukulele: LU-21T Tenor

by Guitar Guru

”Rich-Toned Uke That’s Easy to Play”

“Warm rich tone” is not usually a term that comes immediately to mind when talking about ukuleles. But with the Lanikai LU-21T Tenor Ukulele, you may just have to change your opinion. Not only does the LU-21T have warmth and richness that belay its small size, it also has an aesthetic appeal that will have you smiling in no time.

Built on a tenor sized ukulele body, this uke is larger than the sopranos and looses much of the tinniness that one would normally come to associate with a ukulele in this price range. Instead you get a laminate nato wood top and body that play like something that should be in a higher price range than the $124 price tag of the LU-21T.

One nice feature of a Tenor sized ukulele is that it is slightly longer and bigger than a soprano sized uke, which makes it easier to handle than the smaller models, even for those players who have larger hands. And this particular tenor is a joy to look at as well as to play.

The playful body binding gives the LU-21T a cheerful feel that will put you in mind of beaches and palm trees and the sturdy little body will serve you well no matter if you’re on a tropical beach or a northern forest. It will be an instrument that you enjoy playing, however, and you will want to protect your purchase with a

for just ~$39 extra.

This lovely little instrument is not only inexpensive and sturdy, but it is also a great tenor ukulele for beginning musicians; an instrument that can serve as a bridge between playing a soprano ukulele and playing larger instruments, such as a baritone uke. No matter if you are looking to ease yourself into a larger (or smaller) instrument, or whether you are simply looking for a great starter uke, the Lanikai LU-21T Tenor Ukulele may be just what you are looking for.
