A wonderful 6 string ukulele here from
Ohana. It takes the best parts of multi-course ukuleles and conventional 4 strings and puts them together in one stunning instrument. The CK70-A6 is an all solid wood ukulele with a bigger sound than the average concert.
It's tuned to gG,cC,E, A. The mixture of low and high G (like a 5 string) and inclusion of the high C string gives you all the jangle and chimey chorus of a 6 or 8 string but with a cleaner treble side. You can pick melody with octave bass notes on this.
Best of all, the instrument doesn't suffer at all for being a concert size. 6/8 string concerts are very rare and can feel slightly claustrophobic, but this uke has a tight sound and a pleasant ring to it. Check out our first impressions of it in the video below.

Well done Ohana, when you get it right - you really get it right.
