Ex-Demo Kamaka HF-3 Solid Hawaiian Koa Tenor Ukulele with Case #201801
Simply put, this Kamaka is one of the most responsive and satisfying tenor ukuleles in production today. The build quality is exceptional, really lightweight and sturdy, and as as result the sound is clear, full, bright in the trebles and warm in the bass - kind of how it should be!
It's hard to recommend a more capable all round tenor ukulele than this. The intonation is a good as it gets, it plays all the way up the neck with no dead spots and great sustain, sounds crisp with a high G and warm with a low G, and can be turned to many playing styles with satisfying results.
No need to explain the history and tradition of Kamaka instruments, other than to say that since 1916 they've been making seriously beautiful instruments. They're very, very good at it.
Worth every penny, and a few more! Pictures show actual instrument - videos show another instrument, but you get a good idea of the way they sound.
This one is being sold as ex-demo, as it has been on display for a few months now. It is in very good condition, but there will be small cosmetic marks here and there. There is nothing major that we can capture on camera. Please note that we changed the strings to Worth BT high G brown fluorocarbon to see what the sound was like, and it was so good we decided to keep them on! The original strings can be reinstated if you prefer - let us know on the order.
