Mt. Juliet TN – NOW Available! For 2022, by popular demand, Lanikai announces the return of their LU series ukuleles with several feature upgrades found on other current Lanikai models. The new LU series is available in soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone sizes.
These new ukulele models are ideal for any beginning player, while also being equally useful in the classroom or other group instructional settings. Each model is crafted from attractive satin resonate Okoume wood with a hidden scarf joint in the headstock for longer sustain and a NuBone® nut and saddle for improved tone and projection.
“The Lanikai LU series has all the features that students need and teachers appreciate: great feel, great tone, and a great price” notes “Cheef” Poletsky, performer with Kings of Ukulele and long-time ukulele instructor.
Like all current Lanikai ukuleles, the LU series features wide comfortable neck profiles, open back tuners and two chrome strap buttons. They are equipped with Aquila® strings, a free gig bag, and a limited lifetime warranty. The baritone includes an adjustable truss rod for easy action adjustments.
Bob Tigert, Group Instructor with Nashville Ukulele Society, appreciates these upgraded details, “In the new LU line, Lanikai incorporated many of the player-oriented features of the more professional models. No beginner wants to fight their instrument to learn how to play and the LU Series is amazingly crafted to provide a really, really good instrument at an entry price. Go play one, and marvel!”
“This revamped LU series is a sincere nod to our past models but with upgraded performance and features not previously available,” states Lanikai Brand Manager, Rock Clouser. “We always strive to offer the best playing experience possible, regardless of whether the instrument is designed for the beginning student or the seasoned professional player.”
