    Default Ohana Sopranino REVIEW

    Ohana sent me one of their beautiful little sopraninos to review.

    OHANA SK-21 Sopranino

    Thinking of getting one? Check out my review.

    Very informative review as usual Ken.

    I already have a Tangi Sopranino and now I feel I need an Ohana too.

    My wallet really dislikes how you do your reviews.

    Unfortunately I'm currently downloading a boatload of stuff with the hope of finally getting some sort of workable DAW on my Linux box so I'll have to wait to check this out.

    But I bet it'll be great!

    EDIT: Yep, great review. As someone mentioned in the comments, there's a gig bag available for it. Also, try tuning yours up way high. I think it really shines way up there. You can try the Eb you mentioned, but I've got mine cranked all the way up to F.

    Stupid question....does tuning-up change the chord finger patterns?
    So you could tune up from GCEA to what exactly?

    No, as long as you tune up each string by the same amount, the finger patterns remain the same. Just the chord names change.

    A chord of C in G C E A tuning becomes

    a chord of D in A D F# B tuning and

    a chord of Eb in Bb Eb G C tuning.

    Hope that makes some sense.

    All the above tunings can be used for a sopranino.

    Thanks for the clarification Ken, and thank you for the nice review.
    I was on the fence about getting one and your review pushed me over.

    I am sorry about that. I think that for technical reasons they can only ship to EU countries.

    ken, your review was the final nail in the coffin, so to speak... bought the sopranino a week ago as an eventual gift to my nephews but i have yet to stop playing it!

    I love your reviews, thorough and well thought through. That concludes this week's episode of "Words with 'ough' ", kids.

    Man, I wish they would carry that thing in Japan... It looks like the ideal "put in your bicycle basket and go to the park" uke... no disrespect meant btw. I had a decent soprano for that but gave it ("deach-ent soprano", anyone? Oooo...painful ) to a friend in ukulele-deprived Korea. As soon as they start selling here I'm getting one!
