KoAloha Slimline Tenor with LR Baggs 5.0 Ukulele Pickup System ~ Deluxe Hardcase and Humidifier Included -

This is the NEW 2018 model with abalone logo inlay and an improved gloss finish. KoAloha has never looked so good! The tone? That same awesome KoAloha tenor sound people have been loving for many years. Check it out!

If it shows "In Stock", then the ukulele pictured AND in the video is now available!

Another amazingly successful design from the genius builders at KoAloha! It has a thinner body width but has tons of volume and body to the sound. Beyond having wonderful resonant qualities, this Hawaiian koa tenor uke is extra easy to play, and setup with a world class active ukulele pickup system!

This body is about half of the normal body width. However, you would never be able to tell from the sound. This model sounds just like the regular KoAloha tenor, but with just a touch more punch. The thinner body makes it extra comfortable to hold and play, and the LR Baggs 5.0 active pickup system is the latest, greatest amplification system to come to the ukulele world. This would make an excellent instrument for anyone looking for a high quality Hawaiian-made tenor that sounds great and is ready to plugin for recording or live use.

So the big question is....How does it compare in acoustic tone with the regular full body tenor KoAloha? We did a side-by-side recording of the two for you. Check it out! Note: This video was done a few years ago with different mics from our current setup, but the comparison within in the video will still show an equal comparison.

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!

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

Options

 

This is ukulele comes with the deluxe wooden Ko'olau CE slim tenor case which fits perfectly.

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+). This is suggested if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or if you are heat the air most of the day and night. For more info see our Ukulele Care link at the bottom of the site.

This ukulele comes from the factory with a plain fluorocarbon low G string set. If you prefer a certain string set that the ukulele does not come with, then buy the strings you want from strings section of the site, and let us know under Special Instructions that you want those on the uke. If you simply want your instrument to be a high g instead of a low, there is no extra charge. You can specifiy in Special instructions below.I f you are not sure, then check out this video blog: Comparing Hi G with Low G

Very satisfied !
I Own this superbe intrument one month ago.

I used to play Favilla (soprano & baritone) Hamano concert.
And the KoAloha is far away more easy and fun to play, in tune, rich in tone from the others.
And with the LR Baggs 5.0 , when I play plugged, the sound I get is closed to an acoustic sound.

And what to say about the Ukulele site team ?
I called a few times and had Zak who was always very friendly and listenned to my wishes.
The set up they made is (in one word) excellent !

thanks for that.

Last word.....
To get this superb instrument, you'll have to spend a lot of money. But youll' forget that soon and your fantastic KoAloha will still be home !

want it!
I have a concert KoAloha with the same pick-up, and it sounds like a dream. I'd love to have the big brother in low G tuning for flexibility. Slimline comfort!

'Da Best!
This "ukulele is the easiest to play. Small size is very easy to hold. I can finger chords on this 'ukulele that I can't finger on other ukes. The action is great. Makes me seem like a better player than I am. I bought one of these a few months ago. It sounded great then but I think it sounds even better now. The KoAloha's have a special sweet Hawaiian sound!

I think this is a great deal. It comes with factory installed LR Baggs 5.0. When you play way up the fret board and you're amped, it sounds so sweet and clear.

The case, I think you only get this HMS, is amazing! Fits like a glove. You don't want to keep this beauty in a gig bag like Kala or flopping around in a regular tenor case.

So easy to play, great sound, great electronics and case! If I could only have one 'ukulele -- this would be it!

Wow! Wow! Wow!
I don't have this sweet KoAloha thin body ukulele, but I've played one owned by a friend. Acoustically, this uke booms like a cannon - its loud! - which belies its smaller body cavity due to the thin-line construction. As with all KoAloha ukes, it is impeccably well made in all details from the wood to the finish and design. The LR Baggs is top notch and offers plenty of ear pleasing uke sound in an amplified environment. There is much Aloha in tone and vibe. The price point and overall value makes this uke a must-have for ukulele enthusiasts and musicians. KoAloha has a winner with this model. P.S. This uke is on my wish list and will be my next ukulele purchase.
