New Pro-Classic Acacia Tenor
This is the brand new Pro Classic Acacia model from Pono. The Acacia series has been a popular choice at the shop because it plays great and sounds wonderful. They are warmer in tone than many expect from an Acacia ukulele and the build quality is right on point. This new 2018 version features a new wood rosette, gloss body and faceplate but a smooth satin neck, and an added side sound port for an even more open tone. The weight on these new models is slightly less and the necks are a bit less chunky than previously. All in all this new Pro Classic comes with added improvements in voicing and design at the same price as the previous model. Kalei gives us a review along with a raw sound sample to hear it's sound.
As you can hear the new AT-PC-SPO Pro Classic has an wonderful tone with a full, articulate voice. The sound sample was with the stock Ko'olau Alohi high w 3 set but this would also sounds great with a low G set up, so if you would like, we will be glad to set it up that way for you at no extra charge. If you want low G, type low G in the special instructions.
This model, like all new Pro Classics from Pono has a radius fingerboard. It's not an extreme radius, and is hardly noticeable until pointed out. But it surely adds to the comfort of play. Displayed and protected by the cleanest gloss finish yet from Pono. This glassy smooth lacquer finish is extremely strong yet just a few thousandths of an inch thick. This "lets the wood really speak."
Pono only uses solid woods, only bone nut and saddle. wood bindings, no plastics. They have a climate controlled factory on the island of Java and diligently aim for perfection on every level. It shows!
