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. And it has that famous soprano “bark”, but with sweet overtones from the koa and from KoAloha’s unique body design.

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 and their new look with the ebony appointments, abalone inlays, and gloss finish is more beautiful than ever!

If you had yours eyes open for a good Hawaiian made instrument, this one will surely please your ears and induce some serious fun on the ukulele!

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 or the Humistat Model 1 included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18) or OH-32 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. You can also 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. Before being shipped, 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 should be aware of.

Excellent ukulele
Koaloha makes unique sound. When I first time saw it in a store, I just wondered how can it produce such a clean tone, very pure, and sweet tone which I've never heard from other ukes. I love Koaloha, especially its soprano one. Easy strumming, happy to sing together with it, Don't hesitate to pack it in your bags when travelling.

Bright and harp-like voice
The KoAloha Soprano is a wonderfully bright and surprisingly loud instrument for it's size. It has an almost harp-like quality to iit. It's sounds great strummed, but I feel it really shines when finger picked. It is lightweight compared to most other brands. I think the lightness in build contributes to it's sustain and voice projection.

Excellent sustain and punchy tone
I was originally going to buy a Pono mahogany uke, but after listening to what I wanted in the voicing and tone and comparing it to my older Kala uke, MGM convinced me to buy this Koaloha Koa one. Money well spent! Been playing it for a few months now and it is lovely in sound, playability and looks. With the original strings, the tone has a punchy and sustained ring to it, not brittle but warm yet bright. The sound "envelops" the room warmly, so-to-speak. HMS set it up for me nicely so it is easy to fret and play. I love the original flurocarbon strings especially for finger-picking. The uke itself is very light and easy to hold. Funny enough, I've tried to play other ukes since buying this one and find that I keep going back to this one! Am very glad that MGM suggested this one despite my original choices.

One of the Best Instruments in the World
KoAloha has not been in the ukulele-making business as long as some other manufacturers out there, however they have made quite a name for themselves. They've done so with their revolutionary patented Unibrace bracing system. It allows them to built very thin tops that resonate better than any ukulele I've personally tried. Their soprano is louder than many tenors on the market! It's mind-blowing! Add to that great playability and this soprano is one of the best bang-for0-the-buck instruments, period!
