Pono ASD - All-solid Acacia Soprano Deluxe

Quartersawn Acacia Wood ~ A Glassy pro finish ~ Ebony Appointments AND most importantly...great tone!

Pono Ukulele is a branch of Ko'olau Ukulele. They are producing the top-notch ukes at reasonable prices and they keep getting better! This is the Brand New Acacia Series from Pono. They kick it off with a killer little soprano. Beautiful to look at, and the tone is deep, warm and open. 

Pictured is the ukulele available here. It is the new 2019 ASD which now come with the Grover open-back geared tuners. They are light in weight and give you smooth accurate tuning. These new acacia sopranos from Pono look and sound better than ever. Kalei gives us a sample. 

Acacia is a family of trees that Hawaiian koa belongs to. This is not Hawaiian koa but comes from a very similar species found throughout Asia. This instrument was built on one of the Indonesian Islands with hands-on guidance and quality control from the Ko'olau Ukulele Company. These are constructed by the finest instrument makers and to Ko'olau specs and design. They are really good! This soprano looks and sounds superb! The tuning keys are very high quality, the nut and saddle are bone, and the gloss finish is thin so the wood can resonate. They made this one just right!

Options

When you buy this ukulele you can get a canvas covered case, or an Oahu case at an additional discount.  (Not required but suggested) These can be seen in our cases category under the accessories tab at the top of this page. Other cases can also be chosen there.

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360 included humidifier for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier 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 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. 

Put a note in the Special Instructions if you would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything. 

After adding this instrument to your cart, you can still create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

Simply wonderful
This is a marvelous soprano ukulele. Pono's build quality would be hard to beat in this price range. The acacia on mine is a light golden brown with pleasing chatoyance on the back and the finish is flawless. The tone sounds great to me and the projection is strong. This little box can really vibrate and sings out loud and clear when you feel like it, turn the volume down and it will almost whisper in your ear. It begs to be played. Oh, and the setup by HMS was great, as promised!

Fun to play this soprano
This soprano is beautiful in tone and look. Acacia top side and back looks a little bit grayish compared to typical Koa but still very similar to it. It has bright and punchy tone that is the same character as Koa. The wood grain is so beautiful and the gloss finish is perfect. The body is firmly built and the intonation is just right. Perfect choice for this price range.
