Kamaka HF-3 2DI Ipuka Tenor Deluxe 2 Slotted Head with Case New
Like all new Kamaka instruments, the HF-3 Deluxe 2I is impeccably crafted. The top, back and sides of the Deluxe 2 series are made with highly figured Hawaiian koa and feature a full gloss finish. The top and soundhole are ringed with abalone, which adds a lovely frame to the koa. The HF-3 Deluxe 2 shows how Kamaka crew keeps raising the bar and making their fine ukuleles even better. The letter I in the model stands for 'ipuka, a Hawaiian word for an opening that lets light shine through. Kamaka named it for the slotted headstock is for the slotted headstock.
The HF-3 tenor is our best-selling Kamaka uke, hands down. We think this model's versatility is part of the reason. It sounds great with the traditional "my dog has fleas" tuning but it also works well with the Low G tuning, as well. Thanks to the longer scale, the frets on a tenor uke are a little further apart, so complex chords are easier to finger as there's more room, making tenor uke the most popular switch for guitar players. It's simple, if you play any fretted instrument, or if you're just starting to, you'll find a use for a fine-sounding tenor like this one. The Kamaka tenor is the does-anything-and-does-it-well ukulele.
