Details

When you think about Big Island you think bling - Although with Koa like that you don't need this gorgeous tortoise shell binding to know you have a Uke that speaks for itself! This is a truly wonderful little soprano, endowed with all of the Aloha sunny island spirit and sound. As you would expect from Koa, it is bright sounding, but very smooth at the same time, not too shrill but very satisfyingly refined.

The gloss finish certainly helps to harden the wood, and help to increase the note definition and the volume. With quality fixtures and fittings such as a bone nut and saddle, and koa wood buttons on the machines heads, it really is a high quality instrument in build and sound.
