Lanikai LU21-T Tenor Ukulele

Availability: Out of stock

Regular Price: $279.95

Special Price $219.95


The tenor is on the larger side of the Lanikai ukulele family and this larger size extends to sound production. The tenor is big on sound but still retains the rich warmth that only a uke can provide.

You'll be impressed by the quality here. Nato wood body and solid rosewood neck provide a solid quality feel while high-grade Aquila strings promote the mellow uke tones.

Joel's Review

Joel's Review - This tenor uke is suited to those looking for a bigger sized uke. If you have large hands and find the smaller uke's are a little difficult to play, this model will be suitable for you. Lanikai's are built with quality and last a lifetime, you are guaranteed to get a quality instrument. The tenor size is perfect for entertaining friends as it has some serious volume.

Customer Service
I've been playing guitar for about 5 years. Very poorly may I add ;) All the hype about ukuleles sucked me in and I went ahead and bought this uke. It works perfectly as expected and I love it. Its such a cute instrument.

Nice action straight out of the box. Review by Norman
Customer Service
Straight out of the box, this uke was ready to go. The setup was right with good action, not too high. So far so good. I have tested the Uke for dead notes but I haven't found any so far. Overall I'm pleased and can see why this Uke is popular.

Beirut plays it, good enough for me. Review by T. DANGERFIELD
Customer Service
After watching Beirut play this uke, I had to have one. What a great find! I cant find a fault on this uke, it looks outstanding and has the exact tone I wanted. Aquilla strings brighten the uke right up. No point spending more on expensive ukes, this one is the bomb. (Posted on 26/03/2013)
Serious value for money Review by PowellJam
Customer Service
Soundwise - the LU21T is serious value for the money you spend on it! Sounds great playing all different genres.

Free tuner was a great offer, I used to tune by ear! Cant believe I never bought a tuner before. (Posted on 4/03/2013)
Great Uke! Review by Diane M. Ruzevich
Customer Service
I have played guitar all my life and wanted to just try this because it was small enough to bring to hospital while my brother gets chemo and it sounds great is easy to play and the wood is unbelievable beautiful. I love this uke and one can go on line to get all kind of free music to play and I can use my smart phone to tune it even in my car. What a world!

Ideal for starter uke Review by Todd
Customer Service
I order this uke on a Monday afternoon, got it delivered the next morning, thank you for the fast delivery. Unfortunately there was a fault with the ukulele which most likely caused in transit, so I had to send it back. The 2nd uke had no issues, its perfect. Its got nice tone and will be perfect for anyone who has large hands like myself!

Sweet sound, very happy with the purchase! Review by Micah
Customer Service
This uke took about 2 weeks to finally hold its tune. It was due to the strings settling. After that, it is absolutely PERFECT. I mean perfect. There is nothing better than relaxing after a hard day of work with a beer and my ukulele. Its a great addition to my collection. (Posted on 5/02/2013)
Versatile and Durable Review by D. Humphries
Customer Service
Its a brilliant uke, perfect size fretboard for me. Has a nice wooden finish and rich sound. You can take it anywhere, I have been on 2 holidays with it so far. Throw it in the bag and off we go.

Only problem is hooking up a neck strap, you have to use one of those sound hole straps. (Posted on 15/01/2013)
