Duke DUT Mahogany Tenor Ukulele is a high quality, boutique beginner ukulele specially developed by the design team at London's World Famous Ukulele Store. Duke Ukuleles feature the very best qualities of top brand instruments as selected by dedicated Ukulele specialists to bring years of playing enjoyment.
Classic British Design meets Polynesian Paradise
In homage to the classics that revolutionised music, the new Duke Ukulele range recreates the authentic styling of mid-century mainland ukuleles. Presented in a super sleek satin natural mahogany finish, the Duke Ukulele range has been expertly crafted and beautifully designed.
Premium grade features selected by dedicated specialists
Every Duke ukulele has been developed to produce a warm, open sound. Featuring a classic mahogany body for resonance and projection, with stylish and robust construction. Duke Ukuleles come with genuine Aquila Super Nylgut Strings for enhanced projection, tone and intonation, the industry standard Ukulele string of choice.
Easy to play, comfortable to hold
A premium quality, ultra smooth walnut fretboard has been expertly finished for an unrivalled playing experience for both the beginner learner and the professional ukulele player. Whether you're taking your first steps or looking to inspire with a gift, a Duke Ukulele is the perfect introduction to your musical journey.
Duke Ukuleles are available in Soprano, Concert, Tenor and Baritone sizes with a selection of accompanying vintage styled luxurious bags and cases sold separately.
This ukulele has a lower action suitable for beginners, with strings offering good crisp tones. The body is made from laminated mahogany, but the quality wouldn't stray as far from solid body ukuleles priced higher. I preferred the warmer tone of this tenor than the concert uke though, but that is just a preference. Also, the tenor size fits more comfortably in my arms and fretboard spacing feels natural for my hand (I'm 5'11" btw). Overall, I recommend this as an excellent choice for anyone wanting to learn the ukulele, with or without any guitar background.
Just getting to know the Duke Tenor, so far it looks and feels very nice.
