Description

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.

Quite a wonderfully well made and bubbly sounding instrument is this; the sound is neither too bright nor too mellow, it has great poise and presence, and any playing style you throw at is is rewarded with crystal clarity, and bags of volume when required. It is on the more rounded side - perhaps not as exuberant as a KoAloha or as crisp as a Kanile'a, but somewhere right in the middle.

In the hand it is very light, as all Kamaka ukulele are. The neck feels very slender and it invites playing up the neck, where you find that the intonation is as good as it gets, and that you can still get very decent volume and sustain right the way up.
 
Highly recommended!
