“I purchased my first Lanikai ukulele at 16, I remember buying one because it looked so pretty and sounded awesome. I still love playing a Lanikai today for the same reasons. I have a part within my shows where it’s just me and my Lanikai playing to the crowd. It’s really special.”
Captivated by its beauty and awe-inspiring sound, she still cherishes playing a Lanikai today. Other renowned artists, such as Alec "Cheef" Poletsky from the Kings of Ukulele, have been devoted Lanikai players for nearly two decades.
“I’ve been playing Lanikai ukuleles for 18 years. On stage or in the studio, they have everything I need. From tone, feel, and wood choice, to cut-away access, preamp, and strap buttons.” says Poletsky.
