Koaloha Opio Soprano Ukulele Package

Availability: Out of stock



The New KoAloha "Opio" Soprano!!

This is an all solid sapele soprano that will knock you off your feet with classic KoAloha tone. This is Koaloha's new line from their self built Thailand factory! They reconstructed the factory from their original KoAlana line implementing humidity control and extra quality control to present a new and improved affordable offering. This is the brand new KoAloha "Opio" and it's fantastic in sound, feel, and craftsmanship. 

KoAloha's top Hawaiian workers have spent the better part of last year teaching talented Thai wood workers how to be true KoAloha craftsmen. The result is monumental. The response and projection is very similar to their beloved Hawaiian made instruments, but with the warmth and body of sapele.

All sound samples are recorded for the raw, true sound. No effects or enhancement are used. Listen on quality playback to hear the differences.

This satin finish is very clean and professional. Unpretentious and still artful, this is simply a wonderful ukulele. Grab one while they last. This is a limited run and the value is unprecedented!

This batch of Opio's will go down in history as some of the finest ukes ever made. The sound is phenomenal brand new without the woods even breaking in! Within a few years the power in these little instruments will be mind boggling!

We are selling this model with a Canvas covered Hard Case and Humidifier included.

Don't miss out! Grab one now and love it for life!

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 also areas with winter seasons, especially if you are heating 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. You can also swap out the stock friction keys for Gotoh UPT geared tuner. This upgrade is recommended for this model.

Beautiful and elegant ukulele. Incredible projection.
This Koala Opio Soprano is absolutely beautiful. The craftsman ship is flawless and wonderful. I felt in love as soon as I open the box. HMS did an excellent set up job. The sound is gorgeous.

The "go-to" keeper!
What a find this ukulele has been! Its tone and projection are superior and the understated elegance in its appearance, striking. It's very comfortable to play, even for the player who has a greater affinity for a concert or tenor uke. The affordability of this uke is mind-boggling, given its beauty. Bottom line-this one is a keeper. I can't imagine our parting ways.

And special mahalos to the team at HMS for their attention to every part of the purchase process and terrific setup. The "go-to" uke from my "go-to" experts. It doesn't get better than this.

A Great Uke at a Fair Price
I love my Opio. I've had this one for about 7 months now and it was the last uke in my quest for a great daily player. Seriously, after getting this one, I've not felt the need to search for my "next uke". This one is just what I was looking for.

The matte finish really shines up with normal wear over time and looks great, giving it that broken in look. It's not flashy and I like that. Nothing against ornamentation, but I prefer things on the simple side. The fretboard binding and mango dot inlays are subtle but attractive touches.

What can I sayโ€ฆit's a great ukulele.

Absolutely Fantastic Instrument!
First of all the people at Hawaiiain Music Supply are wonderful people to deal with. Courteous, honest, and very concerned with the customer. They exhibit a level of integrity that is not real common these days. I ordered my instrument from Andrew and he took care of all the details and I had my instrument in one week! Thank you Andrew!
The instrument is wonderful. It's construction is flawless with keen attention to detail. The tone is warm, plump, and a level of projection that is unbelieveable from a soprano. It is bright without being too bright to sound plunky. It has perfect balance and is very hard to put down. I absolutely love it! It has good dynamics and lends itself to phrasing.It has that classic Hawaiian sound. What else could I expect from a genuine Koaloha. I highly recommend this instrument to the discerning ukulele player.

Absolutely a gem! Projection, brightness,mellow tone,fantastic instrument!
The Koaloha Opio Soprano ukulele is a fantastic instrument! It is called "junior" (Opio) as it is made from solid sapele wood instead of Koa. The solid sapele imparts a warm tone without loosing brightness. The craftsmen ship is flawless and the complete instrument shows pride and attention to detail. After all, it is a genuine Koaloha and a little brother to the Koalohas made in Hawaii. The responsiveness is so wonderful and it lends itself easily to phrasing. What more could one want in a musical instrument.In my opinion, this instrument is the best at any cost and certainly a value beyond words. What a. gem! I can't put it down. The bell like tone will knock you for a loop. Thanks Alvin Okami for this ukulele that I hope to have all the rest of my life. It is a true inspiration. Dr. Poland
