Walnut Tenor Ukulele Kit
The ukulele, which was developed in Hawaii, has been riding a big wave of popularity since the 1990s. With its cheerful sound, convenient size, and just four strings to master, it’s easy to see why the ukulele has become such a major trend around the world!
These tenor uke kits are designed to make your first build enjoyable from start to finish; many of the components have been precisely crafted to fit perfectly, letting you focus on the building without any worries.
To reduce spring-back and aid stability the back and sides are made from high quality Pacific Walnut laminates—this will go a long way to ensuring your first build is painless and enjoyable. The solid spruce top gives the uke a dynamic sound and will age beautifully over time.
Tenor ukuleles are one of the most popular sizes of ukuleles. As they are larger, adults find them to be more comfortable to hold and play. They have a deeper and fuller sound than smaller sized ukuleles due to the larger body. If you’re a guitarist looking to dabble in ukuleles, Tenors are typically the best choice.
Tenor ukulele tuning is identical to Soprano and Concert ukulele tuning, GCEA. This makes it an easy transition for any ukulele player who are used to the smaller ukes.
