Kamaka Pineapple HP-1 (Exact one in the pictures is available here)

Since 1916, that's right, over 100 years now, Kamaka ukulele has been giving the world wonderful musical instruments and this design was invented by the original Samuel Kamaka. 

The guitar has a waist to sit in your lap, but with the pineapple shape you are not going to miss out on anything you get from the waist on a standard ukulele. What you get is a little more soundboard to open the vibration of the top in essentially the same size instrument. "The big secret of anything is quality control, but for us and my dad it has been selection of wood. Koa has been a traditional wood that has been fabulous for us -- it has the vibration quality." — Sam Kamaka Jr.

These gorgeous instruments are made right in Hawaii with a fantastic consistency of excellence. The sound and design of the Kamaka Pineapple is what really put Kamaka a notch above the competition just as the ukulele started to be built on the islands. In 1928 Samuel Kamaka patented the Pineapple shaped ukulele. Sometime in the 1940′s the patent ran out but they were the only company out of 20 ukulele manufacturers to survive the 1930′s economy. The sound is similar to the regular HF-1 Standard, but with a touch more body.

Kalei gives us a "raw" sound sample. Use quality playback for the most accurate listening.

Setup Options

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

Extra Options

* One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco included humidifier (HE-360) for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+) at a discount. The OH-18 is for moderately dry climates and the OH-5+ is for extremely dry or cold environments. 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. 

* Put a note in the Special Instructions if you would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything (e.g., “Please setup low G” or "Change strings to xyz"). 

* After adding this instrument to your cart, you can shop further to create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website. For example, add a pickup with installation from THIS LINK.

* Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your order reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free FedEx 2-day shipping. Two days is the time in transit.
