    Extra Options

    One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360 included humidifier for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or if you heat the air in your house. For more info refer to the Ukulele Care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hardcase for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

    After adding this instrument to your cart, you can still create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

    Under the Accessories tab you can also customize this instrument by adding strap button(s) or your choice of pickup for plugging in. We recommend either the Misi or the LR Baggs pickup for this ukulele. You can also swap out the stock friction keys for Gotoh UPT geared tuners. This popular upgrade is recommended for this model but not a necessity.

    Flawless...superb tone
    Couldn't be more pleased with this instrument. It sings. It resonates. It has surprising sustain for an 'ukulele. HMS setup is excellent as always.

    It's beautiful!
    I am new to ukulele, but knew that having a good instrument was key to enjoying the process. I can't make this instrument sound bad. This instrument is such a joy to me. It has the sweetest sound. I was in love at first strum.

    My First Ukulele
    I play and teach guitar and mandolin. I got the uke bug and decided that a cheap beginner's uke would not work for me since I am used to professional level instruments. I knew of Hawaii Music Supply's fine reputation and decided that I wanted an authentic Hawaiian koa concert ukulele. I listened to the video samples and honed in on the KoAloha concert because of the sound, the reviews, KoAloha's solid reputation, and the price. I quickly learned to play on this uke. It's tone is articulate and detailed with great warmth, top zing, depth, volume and projection. The response is quick and it is so very light. The quality and setup is excellent and I love the mostly koa look. I went with the upgraded case and am glad I did. Thank you KoAloha and Hawaii Music Supply!

    A must buy for ukulele lover!
    This is my first K ukulele, I own Anuenue lani III Tenor and Kala ASAC Tenor, they are nice uke but no can compare with Koaloha, Koaloha uke is unique in it's outlook design, very light in weight, small body generate very great bright sound. I also own a Kanilea concert, but Koaloha is still my no.1 choice in terms of sounds, build quality and price.

    The sound of this uke will always cheer you up!
    The Koaloha concert koa uke brings together all the qualities I’ve been looking for in a uke: an instrument of great playability with vibrant, sweet and very precise sound. The simple details of the finishing make it a very elegant instrument.

    The KoAloha Sound
    The KoAloha Concert was the second premium uke I purchased after my Kamaka Tenor HF-3. I had been focused on Tenors and was very satisfied with my Kamaka. However, while doing some innocent test-driving at the uke section of the store, not particularly looking for anything, I came across the KoAloha Concert. This uke jumped off the wall and into my hands and I had a really hard time letting it go that day. The sound was so crisp and punchy that it was obvious to everyone around me at the store that it was something special since numerous bystanders noticed the difference from the others I had been testing. LIke the basic Kamaka, the KoAloha is also simply adorned with the Koa wood being the focal point of the design. I also like the Koa fretboard on this as it has a fluidity to it unlike any other fretboard I've played. The similarities to Kamaka end there, though, as this KoAloha sound is very distinctive with lush brightness and is a great compliment to my Kamaka. I also have found I really like the Concert size. This uke is light as a feather.

    It's All True
    I bought a used KCM-00 from someone who got it as a wedding gift and "never played it". It is a 2006 model with a one piece front and back.
    It plays great, sounds great and projects like crazy. It is audible hammering out rhythm with a dozen violins, and plays quiet solo fingerstyle just as nicely. I'm not crazy about the Christian symbolism of the logo and the headstock design, but I love the soundhole shape, the playability and the tone!

    Amazing Ukulele
    Everything they say about Koaloha is correct. The sound of my Concert blows me away. It's voice is bright and loud with a great sustain and perfect intonation. I've never played a custom but I can't imagine them being much better. Build quality and finish are very very good and after a year of playing it, I still don't see any marks on it. If I could find a fault, it would be that aesthetically I prefer having a rosewood or at least darker fretboard and that's a pretty small nit.

    First one had problems but KoAloha took care of it
    The first instrument I received was plagued with a rare phenomenon -- wolf tones. Nothing would help. KoAloha stands behind their instruments in every way and and are the BEST for working with should problems arise. They were unable to find the cause of the "wolf tones" (a decidedly difficult thing to do in fretted instruments) so replaced the instrument with one which is fine. It plays very well and has excellent intonation, however, the tone on the 11th fret of the 1st string has a very rapid decay and loses its richness. The tone on all other frets is fine. Tried many different strings to try to solve the problem. Oh, well.... Other than that, the tone is the rich KoAloha tone we all expect.

    To this date my favorite ukulele.
    This ukulele, purchased by my fiancee from HMS, is the reason of my passion for the instrument.

    I like: the loud and clear sound, the great precision, the light weight, the finish of the product (perfectly assembled, beautiful wood), the design of the fret board.

    I don't like: the tuners are not that great(it is sometimes hard to fix the instrument on the perfect tuning), the instrument is loud but sometimes has a bit of an overdrive sound. It might not be suitable for musicians looking for a more "guitar-like sound".

    Best value for a 'K' brand
    Lightweight, great volume, sweet "woody" tone using Worth strings, sustains nicely. Sounds lovely strummed or fingerpicked. The main selling point for me over the Kamaka and Kanilea models that were available to me at Acoustic Vibes was price and the unbeatable lifetime warranty. Big fan of the "Lisa Simpson" headstock, amber friction tuners, and the understated gloss finish, too.

    Gorgeous Hawaiian made koa uke
    I bought one of these uke's from HMS about 6 months ago. Mine has a lovely burl in the wood, better than some customs ive seen, however this was luck and the ukes have different wood grains. The quality level is 4 out of 5, some small glue marks visible but otherwise excellent. The sound is awesome, very light and bright, excellent intonation, sounds very much the concert it is. It's well known for good reason, I have never heard a bad word about the KoAloha Concert, and for good reason.

    Excellent
    I own a KoAloha concert, and it is wonderful. It is my main ukulele I take to jams as it has a very rich and full sound. Also, mine has so much volume that it EASILY keeps up with the tenor ukuleles all my friends play.

    As a vintage ukulele player/collector, the KoAloha ukulele seems to be made in the tradition of earlier Hawaiian built ukuleles as opposed to mainland built ukuleles. It is light, lines are clean and simple, and the sound is powerful.

    KoAloha doesn't "bling-up" their ukuleles with a thick glossy finish. The finish seems just right in that one can really feel the wood of the ukulele rather than a thick coat over the wood. I have a Kamaka, and vintage ukuleles from Martin, Favilla, Gibson, and others....and in my opinion, KoAloha is very much on the same level as far as quality and sound as those ukuleles.

    Amazing Sounds
    Getting this ukulele for my wife's Xmas present and the sound is loud and amazing! The finish is not as detailed as the other "K"s but I don't think the manufacturer wanted it that way. Very easy to play and if my wife does not like it, it will be mine for sure! (ha,ha)

    Very nice “K brand” ukulele
    I bought the KoAloha Concert Koa Ukulele (KCM-00) from HMS and am very pleased with this ukulele. It has a bell like tone, is very light weight, and has that typical Hawaiian sound. I was especially pleased with the HMS service. I spoke with Mike on the phone and he was great to talk to, gave good advice, and my ukulele arrived promptly. All and all I am very happy with this ukulele.

    Excellent product
    I won a KoAloha KCM-00 from Miso Media (http://www.misomedia.com/) in a facebook contest and received the ukulele later on.
    The uke plays wonderfully and should cost way more than what it's price shows. My KoAloha concert came with Amber tuning knobs. The tuning knobs were really tight and felt very fragile, but with gentle fingers, it would make tuning a breeze.
    The uke projects very very loudly (unbelieveable for a concert) and it has an authentic hawaiian sound to it, probably due to the nature of the tonewood used (Koa).
    Best concert I've ever played so far.

    Great Sound and Volume
    Low on bling but high on sound and volume is the best way to describe the KoAloha concert. These instruments are louder than you might expect, have a great warm sound and are naturally beautiful, made from solid Hawaiian koa wood with unique soundhole shape and headstock that help them stand out in a crowd (if the sound is not enough). KoAloha is also known to have one of the best warranties out there with countless stories of KoAloha doing the right thing for their customers out on the Internet when an extremely rare issue comes up. If a concert is a the size you're looking for you can't go wrong with a KoAloha.
