Gretsch also outfitted the G9121 with a Fishman Kula onboard preamp system, which lets you get the same wonderfully warm and expressive sound when you play plugged in. Discover a piece of American music history for yourself with a Gretsch G9121 tenor ukulele from Sweetwater!

This traditional acoustic instrument celebrates Gretsch's roots in American music

Part of their Roots collection, the G9121 gives you a chance to own one of Gretsch's earliest instruments. Everyone knows Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but did you know that they got their start in 1883 as a banjo company? It wasn't long before Gretsch was making mandolins, ukuleles, and eventually flat-top guitars, contributing to the very roots of American music. So when you pick up a Gretsch G9121, you're holding more than a great ukulele, you're holding a piece of American music history.

Tenor body offers you a rich voice and a comfortable feel

Perfect for a wide range of music, the Gretsch G9121 ukelel's tenor body and longer scale makes it one of the most comfortable ukes to play. Its deeper body also gives it excellent projection and richer undertones, making a fit perfectly with the sound of most acoustic guitars. If you're new to this fun and expressive instrument, then the G9121 is an excellent choice for you.

Onboard Fishman Kula electronics provide natural sound when you play plugged in

Designed to bring out the naturally bright and full sound of your Gretsch G9121, the Fishman Kula ukulele onboard preamp system makes playing plugged in a real pleasure. It's 3-band EQ gives you an extra level of control over your G9121's sound, and a surface-mounted compartment gives you easy-access to the Kula system's CR2032 battery. What's more, the Fishman Kula system also equips the G9121 with a handy chromatic tuner, something no ukulele player should be without.

  • A fantastic ukulele that re-creates one of the fundamental instruments of American music and celebrates Gretsch's heritage

Great Uke

This use was as advertised. It was for my daughter whose already learning chord on it. Sounds great. Built in tuner is a bonus. No complaints.
Music background: Novice payer for 20+ years

The secret

This is really a first class instrument and has a sound distinctly its own but to get the most out of a ukulele replace the strings most of them come with and replace them with Aquila Red Series. That is the secret to getting a primium sound out of a Uke made of mahogany. The sound, projection and overall tone balance will be 150% better. The bottom line is you can pay more for one but you damned sure won't get a better one anywhere. Call Marshall Oliver and tell him I sent ya.

Just plugged it in

I was really really pleased with every aspect of this Gretsch Ukulele until I plugged it into my amp....OMG !!! What an experience, I could not believe how perfect it sounded. I do a lot of chord melody and finger style stuff and it was an experience I'll never forget it sounded like a different instrument it was so perfect, very harp like but it never lost the ukulele spirit. You will have to play one to see what i am saying but be prepared to be more than a little pleased. Somethin else every instrument i buy from Sweetwater seems to be set up to perfection right out of the box. This Uke has very low action, it is super clear and clean just amazing!
Music background: Half a century of playing

What a surprize

I just got mine and it was full of surprizes which exceeded my expectations from its warm tone to its playability. I really love the way Gretsch shaped the neck it feels like you really have something in your hands and not a toy. Two things were different from the description one was the tuning keys are the Grover 9NP rather than the friction type listed (much better) and it uses two watch type flat batteries rather than a 9 volt one. Both exceed the description. You will love this Tenor if you are a player rather than just someone trying to beat the thing into submission. Great choice.
Music background: extensive (50+ years)
