    Default Tenor/Concert Ukuleles for an Intermediate player?

    I have been playing the ukulele for about a year now and I am tired of using my old mahalo. So I went looking for a Concert or Tenor to upgrade to and found many many options. But I want to know your opinion Which one should i consider?

    The ukes ive had a close look at are the:
    Lanikai Lu21 series
    Kala KA series
    Anuenue P2 "Papa"
    Cordoba 20Cm or 20TM
    Fender Nohea Tenor

    Thanks a lot!

    Out of the ones you've listed, I'd go with the Kala. They're incredibly well made for the price, sound great, and are a blast to play if they've been set up properly.

    What are your opinions on the Fender? Is it worth a look?

    No experience with their ukes, but they are primarily known for electric guitars. Seems like they just wanted to catch the popularity wave and added some (Chinese made?) ukes to their line-up. Not saying they can't be decent/good, but I would probably start elsewhere.

    Kala has a solid rep for good instruments. I love my Kala thinline tenor.

    I seem to recall a comment once by MGM here that he'd recommend Kala over Lanikai.

    My first uke was a mahogany Cordoba tenor. Mine's a very nicely made uke, although others have said their quality can be hit or miss.

    Never touched one, but I've heard good things about Anuenue.

    Thanks! Looks like the Kala is the best of the bunch! Any other recommendations?
