    Default Pohaku Hawaiian Art Deco Tenor

    I just saw this ukulele had been finished and I want to cry because it may just be the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Check it out!

    You are right, Robin. That is a truly lovely instrument. Hope somewhere here buys it so we can hear how it sounds.

    His instruments are always so artistic, tasteful and sound terrific. Some of the best I have seen.

    Looks like a perfect candidate for Solorule's stable of fine instruments. Come on, Brenda, give us a break and make some videos with this so we can all enjoy it.

    I've always loved the way the Peter Hurney's instruments look, but never heard one, not in person nor in a video.

    So I too would love a sound sample, but I would be truly surprised if Brenda's attention can be diverted from her LFdM collection at this time and I am sure she is already busy working to perfect her next arrangement on the most recent uke that Luis has made for her, but I am happy to see anything that Brenda or anyone else is willing to share here for us.

    There is a never-ending hunger for MOAR UKULELE.

    Robin, thanks for bringing out this Pohaku to our attention here on UU.

    Yes, that Art Deco tenor is beautiful. But following your link drew my attention to Peter's Golden Atomic koa baritone. Peter told me that he was finding it an exceptional instrument. Couldn't resist. It's heading this way.

    I couldn't resist sharing three links to my Pohaku instruments so you all could hear some samples. These are a couple years old now--my playing is better--but you can hear the Pohaku quality.

    All lovely instruments, they play so smoothly and sound wonderful to our ears.

    Highly recommend Hurney's work.

    UU member Caspet let me play a couple of his and I think they are the best sounding and most playable ukes I have ever laid my hands on.

    I really liked the sound of the soprano! Couldn't hear the tenor very well. The concert's tape won't load at all.
    Thanks for showing us these. His ukes look like works of playable art. Very unique, and unique is good.
