Cheap Tenor Ukuleles
Being the largest of the traditionally tuned ukuleles, tenor ukuleles are usually a little more expensive than soprano and concert ukuleles. However, tenor ukuleles are being produced cheaper and cheaper and you can now get a good starter tenor ukulele for under $100. Obviously, these cheaper tenor ukuleles mean there are some compromises on quality but certain makers will provide you with good, highly playable ukuleles.
The best of the cheap tenor ukuleles are the Makala MK-T (made by Kala) and the Lanikai LU21-T. The Lanikai LU21-T is often used by Zach Condon of Beirut - and is recommended by him as a first ukulele.
