Newly Redesigned KoAloha Gloss Koa Tenor w/ Ebony and Abalone Accents

Pictures show 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 newest model and it has the same woods and appointments but Paul totally redesigned the body to be more round. It's taken in at the waist about a 1/4" and more round at the bottom as well. It's 14 fret to body instead of the older 15 fret. This moved the bracing and bridge down to the sweetest spot of the belly. What did this do to the tone? We think it made it even better! You get a fatter mid-range, and even better balance and clarity we've heard in their Black Label customs. Take a listen. 

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 your 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 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.

Extra Options

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Humistat Model 1, 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 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.

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. Before being shipped, your instrument will first go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money.

This is one amazing instrument - which is really saying something as I'm quite conservative when I get asked to complete surveys. I've owned a Kala solid acacia uke for some time and this uke is totally so much better. It has a lovely mellow, yet full and rich tone. I had a set of Joel's strings fitted and thoroughly recommend them as well as the LR Baggs pick-up.
The Oahu tweed case is a great upgrade. It's a good fit, protecting the uke while showcasing the beautiful Koa.
As for customer service. Expect the email replies to be on the slow side but if you call them you'll get superb service. Everyone from Steve and Corey to Joel, Veronica and the packaging team are so knowledgeable and super helpful. They all went out of their way to ensure I got the instrument of my dreams and they delivered in every way. Thank you.
