Big Island Honu KT-TR All Solid Koa Tenor Ukulele in case #210324
When you think about Big Island ukuleles, you think bling. But do not be put off by the plain cosmetic looks because koa like this speaks for itself! This truly superb tenor ukulele is endowed with all of the Aloha sunny island spirit and sound. As you would expect from koa, it is bright sounding, but very smooth at the same time, not too shrill but very satisfyingly refined.
The gloss finish certainly helps to harden the wood, and help to increase the note definition and the volume. It comes with quality fixtures and fittings such as a bone nut and saddle, traditional rosewood fretboard and bridge, and koa wood buttons on the machines heads. It really is a high quality tenor uke for both build and sound.
This very Ukulele received a 9.1/10 rating from Gotaukulele in August 2021. As a long time fan of the Big Island brand we are delighted to have them receive such glowing praise in an independent review. You can view that review at the video below.
