The eight string tenor ukulele is often used in Hula Halau’s and with Hawaiian music, but it is a really great instrument with any style. You will really love the smoothness of strumming an eight string. Your fingers just glide across the strings. The sound is like two ukuleles playing together. It creates a more full sound. This Kala eight string is at an entry level price, but, after our setup work, it plays excellent, and as you can see, it looks fantastic!
