Details

The KCM-00 solid koa Concert has been a benchmark for Hawaiian concerts since we started stocking them over a decade ago. They are just so vibrant, and resonant, owing in no small part to the very clever unit bracing that KoAloha employ. Other koa concerts are world class but it's incredibly difficult to overlook the KCM-00 on any list of the worlds best ukuleles.

So, after 25 years of making the world a better place with, KoAloha have released their silver 25th anniversary series of instruments. They have taken an already excellent instrument and added a few twists and tweaks to make a really desirable heirloom instrument, which will hold value a well as get better and better sounding with playing. And there is only a small increment in price as well, so still very affordable for what it is. And, they have serial numbered stickers in the soundhole, which is quite important as they will only be making 100 or so silver series concerts and each shop will only receive a limited amount. This is is number 122 and could well be the last one we receive as KoAloha are currently unable to produce instruments .

The ebony fixtures and fittings give this KoAloha concert ukulele a very classy look, and give it an almost slivery hue when the light strikes it in a certain way. The tuners have been upgraded to a brushed steel effect closed back Der-Jung tuner with a KoAloha logo which can normally only be found on the elite black label KoAloha ukuleles at 4-5 times the price of a KCM model. The choice of geared machine heads is very much down to Paul and Alan Okami, the sons and heirs of Pops Okami, who have taken the lead in developing the silver series.

The most important thing though is that KoAloha sound, which is present in spades; all of the bombast, warmth and liveliness that you have come to expect from a KoAloha is here, wrapped up in a very special package.
