New 2018 KoAloha Gloss Koa Tenor w/ Ebony and Abalone Accents and Custom Pyrography Art!

Pictures ukulele now available! 

This is one of the best tenors you will find!! Tons of volume and clarity, easy to play, and 100% Hawaiian! This is the NEW 2018 model with abalone logo, a glossier gloss finish, and ebony appointments. This one has all 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 piece that showcases the beauty of our islands with the classic island Honu on Hawaiian koa.

Honus, Hawaiian for Sea turtles, are the true ancients of the world. They have been swimming the oceans for over 200 million years. This wonderful creature is a symbol of wisdom and of our Pacific islands. This is a fantastic value even without the art work but the unique and creative design makes it an even more special tenor ukulele.

The KoAloha sound and feel is entirely unique to their line of instruments. Mr. Alvin Okami and his son Paul have developed their own bracing, designs, and at times, completely new instruments. They have approached ukulele making like artists and have given us a wonderful sounding koa ukulele in each size. Here in Hawaii the tenor size is the most popular. Many of KoAloha’s endorsed artists play this model, like Herb Ohta Jr., Raiatea Helm and tons of others. We guarantee that you will love the radiant sounds from this splendid Hawaiian Made koa tenor!

If you had yours eyes open for a good Hawaiian made instrument, this one sounds great, feels great, and as you can see is a beautiful instrument.

This is a tenor-sized instrument and comes with a tenor hardshell case.

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 are now offering an "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.

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 house. 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 hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

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

Under the Accessories tab you can also 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.

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.
