Pictured ukulele is the exact one for sale here.

KoAloha became famous for this model and for good reason. For a little soprano it has a humongous sound. It's bright but with a full, warm low end. It has that famous soprano bark, but with sweet overtones from the koa and from KoAloha’s unique body design.

This new is the 2018 model with abalone logo inlay and ebony bridge and fingerboard with abalone fret markers. That along with gorgeous koa wood and the new gloss finish make the KoAloha concert more beautiful than ever! This one is also extra special as you can see with hand art work done by local artist Dino Muradian. This art is called pyrography.
Pyrography or pyrogravure is the art of decorating wood with a heated point, in this case a solder gun. This is all done by hand and in that way you are getting a one of a kind art peice that showcases the beauty of our islands with the plumeria flowers on Hawaiian koa.

KoAloha has a single brace going around the body, and connecting the top back and sides. Whatever it is that they are doing, it works! The sound is fantastic! Take a listen as Kalei gives a raw sound sample.

We are selling this model with a canvas-covered hardcase and humidifier included!!!

Setup Options

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide, at no extra cost, on all ukuleles we ship out. However, this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We now offer "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options, along with current turnaround times for each, at the link- HERE.

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), at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.), or areas with winter seasons, especially 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 need to humidify the instrument, then you need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work. Maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

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

Under the Accessories tab, 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 swap out the stock friction keys for Gotoh UPT geared tuners. This upgrade is recommended for this model but not a requirement.

Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your cart reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free UPS 2 day shipping. Two days is the time in transit. Your instrument will first go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money. For more information on our setup process, turnaround time, shipping, and return policies refer to the links below at our footer.

Put a note in the Special Instructions, if you have any preferences that our  setup or shipping department need to be aware of.
