The 6-string has doubled first and third strings tuned in octaves.
Also known as “the Liliu,” the Tenor 6-String was designed by Sam Kamaka Jr. in 1959 to commemorate Hawaii statehood and pay tribute to Hawaii’s last reigning monarch, Queen Liliuokalani. In 1978, a Liliu was presented to the White House as Hawaii’s Regional Gift.
Since 1916, Kamaka Hawaii, Inc. has prided itself on producing only ukuleles of the finest quality — durable, exquisite instruments that improve with age. Like the ukuleles, the company itself continues to withstand the test of time. The company’s longevity shows its commitment to both customer and employee alike, and reflects other important values as well.
