KoAloha Black Label Custom Tenor

Pictures AND Video shows the exact ukulele for sale here. A local customer had just picked this up this custom Black Label a few weeks ago when he found another uke at the store he wanted to trade for. Different strokes for different folks and this is a dream uke you can get for a full $1,000 under the regular price! 

Black label is the flagship of KoAloha's custom work. They're extremely rare and this one is especially unique and beautiful! It's about 3/4" slimmer than the normal body depth. This makes it extra comfortable to hold and it still projects wonderfully. It also comes equipped with an LR Baggs active pickup system which is an excellent pickup for live or recording use.

Take a listen as Kalei gives us a "raw" sound sample.

This custom tenor has a tightly figured mango top and quilted maple sides and back dyed transparent black and finished in a glassy gloss finish. Black labels are braced and voiced differently from regular KoAloha's. The sound is warmer and more focused and the mango top makes this one of the warmest, rich sounding instruments we've gotten. 

This is an awesome and unique custom tenor by one of the most loved Hawaiian ukulele makers. It includes a wooden hardcase and humidifier.

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 also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your home. 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. 

This ukulele comes with a low g unless you want high G. There's a checkbox option for that.

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

Free domestic and international shipping.

Put a note in the Special Instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything.
