New Pono Taropatch 8 String Concert w/Oahu Hardshell Case

Inspired by turn of century taropatch ukes, this is a concert scale 8 string with a relaxed tension and setup to play smooth and easy. The strings are all doubled in unison in the classic taropatch style. Corey gives us an overview and sound sample.

Photos and video show stock typical.

Acacia is a family of trees that Hawaiian Koa belongs to. It's not Hawaiian Koa, but it comes from a very similar species found throughout Asia. This wood is impressive with tonal character! This satin finish has a woody look and tone. It still shows off this gorgeous Pacific Island wood. 

Wiawa'awa is the accenting lighter wood it's bound with and also for the taro leaf inlay on the fretboard. Glos finish body and faceplate and smooth satin neck. The tuners are friction 1:1 but they are very high quality gotoh UKA series so they are much more stable than cheaper friction keys. They are actually quite smooth and precise.

This instrument was built on Java, one of the Indonesian Islands. Ko'olau Ukulele Company provided hands on guidance and quality control. These are constructed by the finest instrument makers; and to Ko'olau specs and design. This limited edition model is unique and beautiful! Pro Classic package so it comes with the deluxe case.

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, 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 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. 

Put a note in the special instructions, if you have any preferences that our setup or shipping department should be aware of. 

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. 

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. 2 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.
