Kamaka HF-1L - Ukulele in pictures now available!
" 'The best of both worlds' is to have the best aspects of one choice and the best aspects of another choice when you have been asked to select between two choices."
Such is the case with this model from the legendary Kamaka Ukulele Company. It is a standard or soprano body with a concert-scale length. The longer scale is more comfortable for many players, and yet the fun, portable aspect is still there. It fits perfectly into this beautiful Kamaka soprano-sized hard-shell case!
The HF-1L now comes stock with the smoothest, light-weight friction style geared tuners from Gotoh: the Ukulele Planetary Tuners, or UPT. These have a 4-to-1 gear ratio while maintaining a classic friction look. This means no slipping, fine tuning, and they are extremely well-built. The finish is the smooth semi gloss and it feels and looks great. How does it sound? Take a listen as Kalei gives it a sample of the same model.
So what does this longer scale do for the sound?... It leans toward the soprano sound, but with more clarity and a brighter tone from the HF-1. You also get more facility to master difficult songs with a wider range, 14 frets to the body. But essentially, this model has its own unique and wonderful sound and feel.
One of the great things about ukulele is the variety of sizes and sounds available! This bridge between the standard and concert makes a perfect addition to your ukulele arsenal. We guarantee you will love this instrument!
