TunaUke Equipped Ukuleles are the among the first of many advanced ukuleles deemed worthy to be released to the public.
The folks at Lanikai Labs have been working on a solution for the last 3 years for a problem that has plagued all ukuleles. Have you ever tuned up your ukulele and played one chord in tune then switch to another chord and it plays out of tune? The strings are stretched and the open strings are in tune, but for some reason that second chord plays out of tune… Well my friends that is what is called poor intonation!
There are many issues that cause poor intonation and TunaUke Technology solves them all. With this technology they have achieved over a 90% improvement! For the first time ever in the history of the instrument you can overcome all the obstacles and have a ukulele that plays open chords in tune all the way up the neck.
At its most basic TunaUke Tech is comprised of two important features.
The first is the Compensated Nut: Between the four strings the differences in string width and tension are substantial. By compensating the distance between the first fret and the nut we are able to make open chords sound as smooth as silk.
The second is the Movable Saddle: Traditional straight saddles on a ukulele or any other fretted instrument are detrimental to good intonation. With nylon strings even "compensated saddles" are a complete fallacy. The issue is that nylon strings are by their nature, inconstant. After much testing we found the only way to improve on this is to create movable saddle technology to allow the player to adjust the amount of compensation for each string. No tools are required and adjusting the intonation is as easy as pouring milk on cereal.
