KoAloha Juke-A-Lele Tenor

There's no ukulele like a Juke-A-Lele. 

The volume from this tenor is mind boggling! The tones jump out with a crystal clean articulation. The dynamic ability is inspiring, as is the sheer creative design from KoAloha's patriarch and master-mind, Mr. Alvin Okami.Like the best inventor's and artist's, Alvin definitely works "outside-of-the-box". The first ukulele he built was a 5 1/2 inch tunable, playable miniature ukulele! Since then he has been rethinking uke construction and giving the world beautiful Hawaiian instruments. Mr. Okami is a visionary and the "Juke-A-Lele" is a pinnacle in artistic ukulele design. Here's what he says about it-

 

As America was rebuilding itself after 9/11, I spent countless hours thinking of ways that we could lift one another’s spirits.  There was a strong need for patriotism and national pride.  My thoughts took me back to the days when the country was growing, Made in the USA meant quality, and the music was changing the world.  People would gather around the jukebox to sing, dance and share a soda.  Taking inspiration from the past, the third edition of my Masterpiece Collection was born, the KoAloha Juke-A-Lele.  Modeled after a vintage 1950’s Jukebox, this new edition is reminiscent of a time when feelings were good and people came together.
The Juke-A-Lele’s volume is simply amazing.  There are many tricks that I have built into the design that allows it to ring loudly with clarity and sustain.  It is the loudest ukulele that I have made to date. 

 

This uke is not a novelty item. Sure it will look both beautiful and fun on your wall, and blow everyone's mind that sees it. But you should buy this instrument because it will musically satisfy your soul! It is comfortable to hold, and it sounds like no other uke on the market. Alvin Okami is a legend and he hand built this ukulele from start to finish! There are only a hand-full of these made, so don't miss this rare opportunity to own a Custom KoAloha "Juke-A-Lele", a unique and extremely musical tenor ukulele!

We are selling this model with a Koolau Pineappe Tenor Wooden Hardshell Case and Oasis Humidifier included!

noevelty uke that performs
A few years ago while visiting KoAloha I had the distinct joy of getting to play this Juke-A-Lele. I was immediately blown away by the workmanship and beauty of this ukulele. When it was handed to me, I was surprised at the lightness of the uke and I couldn't wait to strum it. As soon as I strummed it, the volume that came from this "juke box" was louder than some guitars. It made my sceptre sound like a whisper. THough I didn't purchase the uke then, one day I plan on owning one of these ukes.
