This is a new custom Kala tenor made entirely by their top builders in Petaluma California It features solid premium Hawaiian Koa with a beautiful gloss finish, and Honduran mahogany satin finished neck with a slightly wider 1.5" inch width at the nut. Kala had this to say about this unique custom tenor.

"Inspired by the traditional Hawaiian pestle used to pound taro root into poi, the Poi Pounder is made from the finest Hawaiian Koa. The koa features the fullest and widest curling of any model we offer, hand selected by our passionate luthiers. The binding and inlay are African Padauk, while the rosette is a Padauk/ Koa swirl. The striking Poi Pounder shaped end graft highlights the beautiful, reserved padauk trim."

Kalei samples this koa tenor from the USA Kala custom shop. Our sound samples are recorded for true reference and have no alteration or enhancement. Use quality playback for the most accurate listening.
