    Default Zebrawood Ohana Soprano demo

    Here is the new Ohana SK-25Z. It is a solid zebrawood soprano. It is getting to be REALLY popular. And it's a bargain.

    Here is what Russ calls a "quick and sloppy" video of me playing it.

    I Am A Pilgrim

    It is a beautiful instrument to look at and to play.

    Ken,

    Are you going to do a review video? Or perhaps you can just give your quick thoughts about the instrument here?

    Pippin is going to do an in-depth review. However, here are a few thoughts.

    When I first took it out of its box about 3 weeks ago I was not that impressed. It looked good, very good. It was well made too. the sound, however, was a bit tight and the sound seemed a bit harsh. Lots of people tried it at the Belgian Festival and I have played it quite a bit in the last couple of days. It now sounds wonderful. The sound has mellowed (maybe its the strings) and it now seems to have a really positive, precise tone with quite a bit of depth.

    It is a proper soprano size and is a really elegant shape. I like it a lot. Some shops in Europe have ordered lots of them.

    Ken-thanks for the information. I have been on the fence for getting one of these and your review is a BIG help!

    My buddy has a zebra wood soprano made by Vineyard. Looks a lot like the Ohana.

    It took Scott's a couple of months before the sound really came into its own. That uke gets a pretty good reception whenever he pulls it out. It would get even better if knew how to play.

    Great vid! Ohana is very lucky to have you as a representative.

    Took the zebrawood soprano for a spin at MGM's booth at NY Uke Fest yesterday. Really sings when it's fingerpicked! And the construction is super-clean.
