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 (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 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.

Perfectly Perfect!
This is my first purchase from HMS, and I could not be more happy with my decision to buy from their online store. I haven't been playing very long and this Pono is my first serious ukulele. It arrived more quickly than expected and is absolutely flawless and a joy to play. It is obvious from the setup to shipping that HMS is committed to create the best possible experience for the customer.

Perfect
This is my second uke. Upgraded from a soprano. The size change is not as big as to a tenor, which is an advantage for a beginner, regardless of the size of your hands. Very good quality and sound. I strongly recommend changing original strings for Aquilas or Worths. Originals are much thicker, stiffer and harder to play. Sound also improves with this minor change. Beautiful finish.

Perfect service and setup by HMS.

Outstanding Value in a Quality Instrument
I own a Kanile'a concert and now a Pono concert. Obviously the Kanile'a's construction and sound are absolutely top-drawer. But if you are looking for a high quality concert with construction and sound that thrills, you really should consider a Pono.
Attention to detail is very high: not a bad fret alignment or sloppy intonation anywhere. The sound is full and the highs resonate very well. Excellent sustain. I have tried Worths, Southcoast and Mahanas on this uke and they all are just fine: try them all to get the sound you like best.
My concert is a flat finish: different from the UV of my Kanile'a, but I like the simple look. All edges in construction are extremely smooth and the finish is consistent; Quality control is very very good on these instruments.
The neck is somewhat thin and rewards fast fingering. Easy picking and strumming.
I would say that the Pono sound is balanced and clear. It really carries well. If you're looking for a moderately-priced concert uke you owe it to yourself to look at the Pono line. Watch and listen to the HMS videos. This line would be a great present to someone who is intermediate and wants a high quality uke to keep improving. Highly recommended!

Great value and great sound
Some of Jake's songs require too much of a stretch for my little fingers on my tenors, so the perfect answer was to buy a concert. This little guy doesn't have any "bling" but it does generate a really warm sound, and volume is not an issue. For the price I don't think you can get a better value.

worth every penny!
I started out with a Cordoba 15-cm and thought that it was a beautifully build and great sounding uke. Then I got an itch to upgrade and pono was calling my name. At first I thought the sound was muddy and the build to be a notch below the cordoba, well it turns out that the pono is braced for TONE as opposed to shear volume that the lower end cordoba is going for. After stringing it with worth clear strings, the instrument took on a new sparkle and the playability became much easier due to the thinner strings. If you like mellow sounds though stick to the stock strings as they are thicker and have a more rounded tone at the expense of a top end shimmer, mid range snap and playability. over all I'm loving this instrument more and more every day.

Elegant simplicity
My Pono MC "refuses" Aquilla! It buzzed on some strings and frets when I put them on, so I replaced it with the original strings it comes with--Koรณlau Mahana (if the info from an online ukulele site is accurate). So far, imho, it has sounded best that way, though I suspect it'll sound as good with a low g.

I find its architectural design simple yet quite elegant. I also appreciate the fact it has a thick body, which I believe helps its resonance.

Warm and plays great
This uke arrived in quick time (to Australia) - really solid feeling and action was great (set up really well). Wood is a bit more figured than the photo indicated (which was great). Sound is warm AND loud - a great tone. Thoroughly recommend this uke AND Hawaii Music Supply!
