the koa seems just a bit brighter and more punchy to my ears

My personal preference would be the mahogany, the koa is a little too bright for my tastes, so now I know. :)

I have and play both and you're right, mahogany is warmer, koa is brighter. Like you, I prefer mahogany. But I'm careful with string selection so I don't warm up the koa. Vive la difference.

Thanks for the video Ken. Right to the point.

Thanks for the comparison, Ken. As someone who will soon be in the market for a good soprano, I found it very helpful.
