Hi everyone,

I came across this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yF9S8qLewbI and I wanted to find out what ukulele this musician is playing. She's not responding to my message so I was hoping anyone here could help me out :)

If not, any recommendations of a ukulele that sounds like this would be great! Thank you so much.

It's either an early KoAloha or KoAlana concert. They are both made by the same company, the KoAlana being the import mahogany model retailing at half the price as the made in Hawaii koa model.
Link for proof:
KoAlana http://ukulelefriend.com/?portfolio=koalana-concert-ukulele
KoAloha http://ukulelefriend.com/?portfolio=koaloha-concert-ukulele-2
EDIT: Verified it's a KoAloha concert seen in her different video playing the same instrument here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37kn-h2BOlI&feature=plcp

Now a days the KoAlana's are made up to par with the KoAlohas and sound great, get whichever fits your price range realistically and you'll be happy.

You'll also be happy with similar sounding concert brands made from all koa like: Kamaka, Kanilea, Keli'i..etc

I agree. Sounds just like a KoAloha. There's a brief glimpse at part of the headstock which looks like it's from a KoAloha too.
