New ukuleles from Laka

With ukulele season upon us, news from JHS that it has a new range of models from Laka seems appropriate.

The LVUS10 (RRP £59.99) takes the popular VUS10 Soprano Acoustic Ukulele and flips it, enabling left handed players to play it. Featuring a solid sapele top, back and sides, this soprano instrument sports a mahogany headstock and ships with a branded Laka carry bag.

For those seeking a more sonorous tone from their Uke, the VUT30 tenor (RRP £109) and VUB30 baritone (RRP £119) exhibit the same solid back, top and sides as the VUS10 soprano instrument, but extend the ukulele’s tonal range towards the lower end of the spectrum, for deeper and richer tones, JHS says.

Finally, Laka has a new bass model,using the same body shape, black binding and acacia koa construction as the Fretless VUB90EA. The VUB100EA (RRP £299) is a fretted bass ukulele featuring the Fishman Clasica II pre-amp system (volume, treble, bass & phase controls): ‘…to perfectly capture its unique tones, the VUB100EA is also equipped with a built-in tuner for accurate tuning on the fly’.

Laka Ukuleles are distributed worldwide by JHS.
