    Hi everyone. I’ve been playing my Mainland ukes mahogany tenor cutaway w/slot head for a few years now and I really like it but it lacks something in the tone and volume. Hard to explain but I want a really special sounding Koa tenor and I’ve already decided it must have these particular...

    Latest Instrumental - Sea of Love

    Just arranged a few instrumentals last night after I put the kids to bed. It helped that I already kinda knew the chords but I wanted to find the melody notes within the chords... it was challenging but fun :) http://youtu.be/a09RsIx2vlw

    New KoAloha Soprano

    Well I'm back from Maui and I am stoked to be the owner of a brand new super sweet uku! While I was there I went to several stores and played about 20 different sopranos, all made in Hawaii by about 5 or 6 different makers (most seemed to start with K) anyway, they were all pretty much amazing...
