Details

What a stunner! Mango wood is perhaps the most visually interesting wood, with great grain patterns as well as lateral markings, called flaming and silking. This one is not just a feast for the eyes - the solid Mango has a tonal response not dissimilar to Mahogany, in that it is dark and interesting, but it has a lovely growly rumble to it. And it has got volume too, plenty of volume across the whole frequency range.

A perfect instrument for the jazzier or bluesier side of baritone playing.

The instrument pictured is a good representation of average. If you would like to see photos of actual stock, please drop us a line.

About the Pono line: The “Pono” line is made by Ko’olau one of the oldest and most traditional Hawaiian ukulele manufacturers. Ko’olau’s goal throughout the years has been to provide the highest quality stringed instruments available with a high standard of craftsmanship. And besides methods of construction to optimize tone and volume, they stress the importance of cosmetic beauty. It is of interest to note that only the finest grades of quartersawn hardwoods, such as Mahogany, Rosewood, and Ebony are selected for Pono instruments. However, only 20% pass the stringent requirements of density, grain patterns, flexibility, and cosmetic aesthetics. This is virtually unknown, especially in the Asian import market. We are proud of the fact that all of the Pono instruments are made of solid woods.
