This is a new custom tenor from Tyde Music. It's made with super curly Tasmanian blackwood and cherry wood, features a light-weight slim body, a smooth cutaway, and has full, rich sound we really love. 

This tenor is super easy to hold and play. as well as travel with.  The one-piece neck and side integration makes this instrument strong and loud.  The side sound port projects even more to the player.  Beveled edges on top and back allow for more comfort and longer strumming sessions.  

Great feel and comfort, the beauty of nature, top notch craftsmanship, and that tone just keeps you coming back for more. Corey and Kalei give us a sound sample. 

The tenor ukulele, a prized instrument among musicians for its rich sound and comfortable size, reaches an unparalleled level of artistry when crafted through the harmonious blend of technology and traditional handcraftsmanship. Utilizing cherry wood, known for its warm tone and aesthetic appeal, as the foundational material, the instrument promises a sonic experience that is both deep and resonant. However, it is the addition of 5-star Tasmanian Blackwood that elevates this ukulele into a class of its own. Tasmanian Blackwood, often considered the grandpa to the revered Koa wood, shares a similar tonal quality with its Hawaiian counterpart. Its use not only pays homage to the traditional sounds of the ukulele but also introduces a unique timbre that is both rich and nuanced, making each strum a testament to its premium craftsmanship.

The marriage of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) precision with meticulous handcrafting techniques ensures that every curve and strumming surface of the ukulele is executed to perfection. CNC machining allows for an unparalleled level of accuracy in the instrument's construction, ensuring that each component fits flawlessly with the next. This precision is complemented by the handcrafted finishing touches that imbue the instrument with a sense of individuality and soul. The craftsman's touch is evident in the smooth finish, the seamless assembly, and the care with which the materials are selected and shaped.

Adding to the ukulele's charm is the exquisite inlay work that adorns its 12th fret—a touch of abalone and gold pearl fashioned into a turtle shell design. This intricate detail not only serves as a visually striking marker but also embodies the spirit of the ocean that is so closely tied to the ukulele's origins. The contrast of the lustrous inlay against the rich backdrop of cherry and Tasmanian Blackwood creates a visual and tactile experience that is both luxurious and inviting. This tenor ukulele, with its blend of exceptional materials, craftsmanship, and artistic detail, is not just a musical instrument but a piece of art that stands as a testament to the beauty of merging tradition with modern innovation.

This is a very special custom tenor and includes an Oahu hardshell case and our final setup work.

More Information

This ukulele comes with the Black Oahu Hardshell case.

Humidifier (Options at the "Humidifier Options above)

Another option is to add a ukulele humidifier. This is required if you live in a low humidity area or if you use indoor heating/cooling, especially for areas with winter seasons or hot summers. If you are heating the air in your house, the air will become extremely dry.

Regardless of the outside humidity levels, the indoor humidity levels will drop dramatically once the air is heated. The same is true for air conditioning, usually not as drastic of a humidity drop as a heater, but it will remove a significant amount of moisture from the air as well. In either case, it is always a good idea to supplement with a humidifier that you store in the case with the instrument while not in use. This is usually a requirement by Ukulele manufacturers in order to keep the instrument covered under warranty.

In order to humidify the instrument, you will need a case for the humidifier to work properly and you will need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed.

Setup Options


Current Turnaround Time: Amount of time it takes before shipment-

Full Setup: 10-14 Business Days

Basic Quality Control: 2-3 Days

BASIC QUALITY CONTROL covers inspecting the instrument for any major defects that would have been missed by the factory and any faults in construction that could potentially damage or limit the functionality of the instrument over time. Any defective instruments are rejected and replaced.  We make sure that each Ukulele meets the basic standard for a brand new instrument and will be ready to play once you receive it. A final cleanup is also included after inspection before packing and shipment.

Full Setup - FREE for all Ukuleles $399 and over / $20.00 for Ukuleles from $300-399 / $30.00 for Ukuleles Under $300


-Overall QC evaluation: To find defects in construction as well as to get an overall view of the instrument and note the areas that need extra attention and adjustment during the setup.

-Saddle Adjustment: The height of the saddle is lowered to reduce the distance between the strings and the fretboard, making it easier to play than the factory setup, especially higher up the fretboard.

-Nut Slot Adjustment: The depth, width, and angle of the nut slots are adjusted to create a more comfortable playing experience especially on the lower frets.

-Fret Dressing: After adjusting the nut and saddle heights, high spots in the fretboard or uneven frets will potentially cause fret buzz, dead spots, or other unwanted problems. The frets are filed to create a more consistent level across the fretboard. We then crown the frets to return their rounded curvature back to the top of each fret creating a clear contact point for each string. We then smooth and polish the frets and condition the fingerboard to bring them back to new condition.

-Final Cleanup: We always do a final overall cleanup of the instrument to make sure it is in new condition and ready to play before it is prepared for shipment.

Rush Setup & Delivery - Additional $50.00
The RUSH SETUP AND DELIVERY service is for customers who would still like to receive everything included in the full setup but on a shorter time frame. One of our setup technicians will work overtime outside of normal business hours to complete the setup within 2-3 days of the order being placed and immediately hand it over to the shipping department for packing and shipment. The $50.00 rush charge is in addition to the cost of the full setup.
