Tenon was best known for making saxophones but 1989 they expanded their production line to include electric guitars and ukuleles, building an instrument factory to increase production capabilities. In 1999 Tenon launched their own brand, Chateau. The inspiration for the name of Chateau came from Mr. Chang’s hometown, which is pronounced similarly to the French word “Château”.
