A slotted headstock and mahogany construction make for a professional looking and sounding uke.
If you’ve been lusting after ukuleles played by ukulele virtuosos, you may have noticed that many of the top professional players use ukuleles with slotted headstocks. Why? Besides looking very sleek, the slotted headstock design actually improves the break angle of the strings for maximum sustain and volumeLanikai noticed the slotted headstock trend and decided to bring you an affordable alternative: the LU22TS. Everything from their LU-21 tenor size uke has been kept, but the LU22TS comes with a slotted headstock, a wider 37mm bone nut and pearloid tuning buttons giving it a professional look and feel.
