New Mango Soprano from Pono!
Quarter Sawn Solid Mango Wood -satin finish
This new model, like every other instrument from Pono, has only properly cut and dried solid woods, bone nut and saddle, and high quality tuning keys. So that's the same as other Pono models. This one is unique because it's Mango! And mango wood is kinda like people, they pretty much all look different. So we are listing the mango ukes picture specific and the one you see here is the one available if it says "in stock".
Well it looks cool but how does Mango sound? In a word, warm! The tone is full and sweet. Not as much "bite" or attack as Hawaiian koa or even mahogany, but a tone that is full and beautiful with depth and character that you only find in professional level instruments. On top of that it's as easy to play as any uke you will find. A real breeze, physically, which makes for a really fun time.
Our effort is to show true tones. Accurate speakers or headphones will be the best way to hear that. Note: this was last years model. New video coming soon.
The instrument pictured and in the video is stock typical. Looks will vary with Mango but they are all beautiful.
We always include a humidifier with solid wood instruments but there is an option to upgrade. See more info under options.
