    Default Estrellita - Solo Ukulele


    This is my arrangement of a beautiful piece of music written by Manuel Ponce. Played on an Ohana TK35G high G! I hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas to you all.

    Beautiful playing, but isn't that an Ohana Tk35G?

    I have a Kala solid mahogany, satin finish. I'm thinking about adding a second tenor to have one with high G and one with low. I've been eyeing the TK-35G and the TK-35 (satin finish). Does your TK-35GS have fret markers on the side? I know that some Ohanas do and some don't. Also, I know some say a satin finish offers improved sound. But I do love the gloss finish on my Kala baritone. I think I'll buy gloss if/when I can find it. Would you mind sharing your thoughts? Happy New Year to you, too!

    Hi Twokatmew, I have since added a low G to the Ohana and I must say that I prefer it. It just makes more sense to me. The TK35G does not have fret markers on the side. It also bizarrely has the dot marker on fret 10 rather than fret 9.....? That through me a little at first but I have found out you get used to anything if you play the instrument long enough. I also play Flamenco guitar and there are no fret or side markers at at all. You do get used to it. I have not got any real experience of different ukuleles so it is difficult for me to make any comparative comments. I will say that the Ohana sounds imho really nice. It seems to have a warm mellifluous tone which I enjoy. I can't really imagine there being any noticeable difference between a matt finished instrument and a gloss finished instrument unless the lacquer is applied with different thicknesses! The one thing that does throw me a little is the G string is a bit close to the edge of the fretboard and if I am not careful I can push the string of the board. Then again you get used to what you have and play accordingly. Overall I have to say I am very pleased with the Ohana and think that if mine is representative of the Ohana range then you should not be dissapointed. Happy New Year!
