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!
