“The Liliu VIII”

The 8-string has all four strings doubled, with the third and four pair tuned in octaves. Played with standard ukulele tuning and fingering, the sound is rich and unique. Also known as the “the Liliu VIII”, the Tenor 8-String was designed by Sam Kamaka Jr. in 1976 to commemorate the Bicentennial of the United States.

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.

Made in Hawaii
