MAKALA 

TENOR UKULELE

A COMPLETE BUNDLE

This is a great beginners tenor ukulele bundle which comes with  our mini ukulele tutor, a woodstock ukulele sling, electronic clip-on mini tuner and a quality gig bag. We think that the Makala tenor ukulele is probably the best choice for the 'serious beginner'. At such an affordable price, it is incredible value for money, we even fit a buffalo bone saddle to make it sound even better. Professionally constructed with the following features, these ukuleles represent excellent value for money:

Body: Agathis finished in natural satin.
Fingerboard: Genuine Indian rosewood - a real bonus on such low priced instruments.
Geared machine heads (tuners) enabling easy and accurate tuning.
Comfortable, low action.

Scale Length: 432mm

Overall body length: 679mm 
6-1/4” Waist 679mm 

Satin finish
Eighteen Brass Frets
Rosewood Fingerboard and Bridge
Mahogany neck 

Buffalo Bone Saddle: The Makala Tenor Ukulele comes to us fitted with the standard plastic saddle. We remove this and replace it with a buffalo bone saddle which greatly improves the tone of the instrument. Attention to detail is of the utmost importance to us, you can be sure of the best.

The tenor ukulele is a very popular member of the ukulele family. It is the next size up from the concert ukulele, and because it is slightly larger, it produces a beautiful mellow tone. The tenor ukulele is usually tuned G. C. E. A. or A. D. F#. B.

  Also included:

THE CLIFFORD ESSEX MINI UKULELE TUTOR 

This booklet is intended to be a very brief but useful introduction to the basic technique of playing the ukulele as an accompanying instrument. The tuning used is the most common one: G, C, E, A, and examples are given in both notation and tablature. It cannot be stressed too strongly that a beginner should start by learning the correct techniques of holding the instrument, striking the strings, and the proper position of the left hand.

Woodstock Ukulele Sling 

 

A ukulele strap that requires no modification to your ukulele. Traditionally favoured amongst classical guitarist the sling strap runs behind the instrument, up underneath to the front and a small hook then catches onto the sound hole. The weight of the uke then sits in the sling. Not as secure as using a strap button however the benefit is that your ukulele remain unmodified leaving it in pristine condition.  Adjustable from 46 to 66 cms. Features a 2cm wide nylon webbing strap, and non marring rubberised soundhole hook.

We only stock products which we feel are excellent value for money. We also ensure that every instrument is set up perfectly before it leaves our premises. Many times customers have brought us instruments purchased on line which even a professional could not play simply because they have not been set up properly prior to being sold. If you purchase an instrument from us you can be sure that when it arrives it will be set up perfectly and be ready to play. Simply the best entry level ukuleles on the market. Sound and playability usually suffer at these affordable prices, but not with Makala. Fantastic sound and looks, and easy on the wallet.

FOR THE ATTENTION OF CLIFFORD ESSEX MUSIC CO. LTD.
 
I am just writing to say that I have just tried my tenor ukulele which I collected from Argos today and to let you know that I am absolutely delighted with it.
 
I just had to slightly re-tune the strings as obviously they are new ones that you have put on it (many thanks for doing that).   I already had a concert makala ukulele and this is as equally good.  Excellent packaging as well. 
 
I will come back to you should I need any more accessories for either my tenor or concert.  I will recommend you to any of my friends. 
 
Kind regards.
