Details

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.

This superb piece of craftsmanship builds on the basis of the HF-4D Deluxe Koa Kamaka Baritone, and adds a beautiful Solid spruce top, rosewood binding with rope pattern purfling and soundhole rosette. The sound defined a little more crisply by the Ebony fretboard and bridge, giving the sound an extra little bit of bite, clarity and sustain up the fretboard.

The spruce top is a very different beast to the Koa topped HF-4D - the sound although crisp on the attack is full and rounded, with real depth, power and presence across the range. It works really, really well with a low G string. For an absolute do anything ukulele this really has to be one to consider. The Koa models are naturally brighter sounding - and extremely lovely in their own way. If the Koa HF-4D is the ultimate sweet and dreamy traditional Hawaiian instrument then the HF-4DS Is the Modern sounding, Clearer, louder and Caffeinated younger sibling.
Worth every penny, and a few more!
