Product Overview

The Hohner Lanikai LU-11 Soprano Ukulele has an all nato construction and a rosewood fretboard. Reddish nato wood, also known as eastern mahogany, is commonly used in more affordable guitars and ukuleles, as if offers many of the same acoustic characteristics as mahogany. Ukulele HistoryThe Ukulele is actually the descendant of a four-stringed musical instrument known as the machte or, less accurately, the braguinha from the Portuguese island of Madeira. There are many theories about how the ukulele got its name. The two most-circulated stories include one about an English army officer, Edward Purvis, who became quite adept at playing the machte. Because he was small and sprightly (as opposed to the markedly larger frames of the Hawaiians), he was nicknamed "Ukulele," which in Hawaiian means, "jumping flea" (also translated as "bouncing Flea" or "leaping flea"). A more literal theory likens the fingers of an accomplished player flying nimbly up and down the fretboard of the machte to the movement of "jumping fleas."
