Ko'olau Hawaiian Ash Tenor (T100 210018)

Availability: Out of stock



A Lighter Hawaiian Wood- 

This tenor has a unique Ash wood grown on the Big Island. Hawaian Ash, also known as Tropical Ash, has a super sweet tone! Very warm, full sound with excellent clarity and balance. 

Figured Hawaiian Ash is rare and expensive and we just got Noa's last two sets in gloss T100 models. This is from our blog, TheUkuleleReview.com, and explains more about the wood and how it relates to other wood options.

The Ko’olau company has been experimenting with alternate local woods for many years now. Recently we have gotten quite a few Ash models in the tenor size. This Ash wood is grown on the Big Island, here in Hawaii. It has a vibrant look, and a wonderful tone. The ash , to me, sounds like koa after being broken in for ten years. It is just more open and comes through in a sweet frequency range that scoops some of the high mids and leaves the perfect uke sound. A spruce top still has more volume, but the Ash has a more traditional ukulele sound. Which is a mahogany or koa top. This is close to those hardwoods in sound, but just a little sweeter, like aged mahogany with the clarity of koa. Just a rare and awesome wood from our Islands.

Some of the features on this Hawaiian instrument are the beautiful perfect Ko'olau gloss finish, koa rosette, ebony fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, Gotoh tuning keys, and 100% Hide Glue construction. Take a listen to a "raw" sound sample from Kalei.

Pictures and video are of this exact instrument available now.

The T100 is a tenor sized instrument and comes with a Ko'olau tenor hardshell case.

All Solid wood Ukuleles get a Humidifier for no extra charge.

Here's a previous Hawaiian Ash Tenor we had. It's been a while. This wood is rare.
