Nice uke, and obviously well cared for. Great photos too. I like the amber UPTs, they look the same color as the KoAloha tuner buttons. This beauty should go fast!

Thanks Steedy, I appreciate the kind words. As nice as the UPT’s look, they work even better. This was my first instrument with them and I’m very impressed with how smoothly they operate.

I love the racing stripes on this one, and I've read that some experts say a straight grain sounds better than curly or flame Koa.

If I didn't already have a KoAloha Concert, I'd be sorely tempted! :cool:

Oh, *you're* the guy who bought the red label tenor. I had my eye on that one - gorgeous sound!

I am huge fan of the KoAloha sound, but I was blown away by the red label tone the first time I heard it in person. Whether it’s nearly 2.5x the cost better is subjective territory. That said, it’s not as forgiving an instrument as my standard KTM is when it comes to hiding my mistakes.

Appreciate the comments, here are some more pics of the KCM for sale.

Oh my! Stunning. You can't go wrong with KoAloha. My preferred K brand. The tone is loud and resonant. And this one is gorgeous. I am on a ukulele diet, and poised to downsize my stash so I can resist temptation. But if you're the sort who can't resist, this is one ukulele worth getting.

Do you have a sound sample?

I updated the google drive with one I just recorded on my phone so I’m certain the quality that came through. The strings are a newer set of KoAloha stock strings in High G.

But for a much better demonstration, check out this video from HMS. This was from one of the first batches after koaloha updated their models in 2016. https://vimeo.com/161597436
