    I LOVE Worth strings. Browns on a loud uke to mellow it out and Clears on a quiet uke to help it project.

    I have the new sugar strings on a Koaloha concert and I have another with Worth Clears....

    I have a buddy who worked there.

    He said, "How the ukuleles would sound was never a part of the discussion."

    They probably get them from Guangdong, like everyone else.

    I think the important part, with all the tension, is the little tab that goes on the inside of the hole.
    Making that inside tab wider would protect the soundhole from damage during a strong pull on...

    I LOVE the spruce top Opios! I think they might be even louder (projection) than the original Koa ukes made in Hawaii. Pops was on that video the other day saying how much he likes Englemann...

    I bought the concert version lately and I can’t put it down. The K brands sit while I play this Ohana. It’s solid wood and sounds really nice.

    They are both spectacular. I was told both have 12 coats of gloss, but Koaloha takes more off during the finish process, which makes them lighter and Kanilea more glossy. Koalohas seem louder to...

    I bought a previously owned ukulele that had stickers for the fret markers. I thought that they were real inlay for about a year. Then they started to fade. But they still look really good.

    The original tuners are made by Schaller (with Koaloha logos) and are very high-end.

    Hey Jerryc41, 39 ukes is just getting started. ;)

    I feel that all Koalohas are wonderful. The Pineapple Sunday and Sceptre are amazing.

    But I sold my Pineapple Sunday and kept the Sceptre.

    These are really nice. I have the concert. The neck has a smooth and fast finish.

    They have a single piece neck/body, so they feel very solid and well done.
