KoAloha Koa Gloss Soprano (KSM-00, 19815)
- Product Review (submitted on December 24, 2012):
- I was originally going to buy a Pono mahogany uke, but after listening to what I wanted in the voicing and tone and comparing it to my older Kala uke, MGM convinced me to buy this Koaloha Koa one. Money well spent! Been playing it for a few months now and it is lovely in sound, playability and looks. With the original strings, the tone has a punchy and sustained ring to it, not brittle but warm yet bright. The sound "envelops" the room warmly, so-to-speak. HMS set it up for me nicely so it is easy to fret and play. I love the original flurocarbon strings especially for finger-picking. The uke itself is very light and easy to hold. Funny enough, I've tried to play other ukes since buying this one and find that I keep going back to this one! Am very glad that MGM suggested this one despite my original choices.
