* NOTE - You will receive the Pono that is in the PHOTOS.

This solid Mahogany Pono MTDX-8 is a powerful sounding and looking instrument that will blow you away. No one makes an 8 string tenor with this quality, looks and price.

The Deluxe means premium wood as well as a gloss finish. The 8 strings are tuned: g-G-c-C-e-e-a-a with all unwound fluorocarbon strings.

The solid Mahogany wood that makes the high note shine and the low notes bounce. It is a top choice for many professional musicians for its clarity and tone. 

If you notice that the Pono Mahogany is unique in its vibrant color and subtle grain pattern, absolutely stunning.

The Pono MTDX-8 Deluxe Mahogany 8 String Tenor Ukulele has a fantastic price point that will fit any ukuleles players budget that wants an all solid wood instrument that is built with care and quality.

am so happy to welcome Pono to Uke Like The Pros. I have heard many great things about Pono over the years and decided it was time to pull the trigger and bring them into my store. 

As the biggest and #1 ukulele store sometimes I bring in brands that do not meet my expectations, BUT, Pono not only met my high standards but exceeded them.

        * CUSTOM SETUP - Each Pono comes with a factory setup BUT I strongly recommend adding a setup especially if you want the easiest playability, have arthritis, or are particular about your setups and want a low action (how close the strings are to the fretboard) please click the "ADD Custom Setup" on this page.

        * A humidifier is HIGHLY encouraged and RECOMMENDED for warranty issues. No matter where you live humidifiers not only protect your investment but also help the warranty process go smoother because you have taken the steps to ensure the safety and protection of your ukulele. If you ever have to file a claim with Pono the first question they will ask if you have a humidifier.

        * Either the Oasis OH-18 (OH-32 for extra dry areas) or the Boveda Humidifier are recommended and available here at Click "ADD Humidifier"

        * You can simply click the add to order box to add the humidifier.

        *A PICKUP (several brands available) - click ADD Pickup . Normal install times are 2-3 weeks. If you want your instrument sooner please use the RUSH pickup option.

        * NOTE - You will receive the Pono that is in the PHOTOS.
