View Full Version : New Uke Day!

My Keli'i soprano (Koa Top, Mahogany back and sides) arrived from Uke Republic. Mike did a super set up. As they say on Mandolin Cafe, "it plays like butter" and the sound is superb. I am not great of describing tone yet, but I know what I like and I really really like the sound coming out of this little ukulele.

I just got done playing it for a couple of hours and am pretty darned excited about the instrument. Here is a link to some photos:

Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to attach photos.

It has a repaired crack on the back which is very hard to see and doesn't detract from the uke at all. There is a prior review in UU which I would agree with 100%. Great ukulele at a great price. Two weeks in and I am having a lot of fun playing the ukulele.

That is a sweet price for a even sweeter uke. You will enjoy playing it for many years.

Nice one!! I'd been wondering when that nice ukulele would sell at that nice price. Congratulations!!!

Glad to know it sounds great, the one Keli'i I've played sounded great as well.

Happy New Uke Day!! I heard Koa and Mahogany create a great uke. Hope to hear a sound sample :D

Nice uke! Congrats. I'll bet it does sound sweet. A marriage between a solid koa top and mahogany sides and back is a sweet one.
