    My KoAlana concert is my gateway uke. I liked it so much it led to a couple of KoAlohas. I still have it; wouldn't sell or trade it. It's a nice balanced uke, which after a Luna Tattoo and a Lanikai pineapple lifted my love for ukulele waay higher. I've never had cracking or separation issues in the 6 or 7 years I've had it. It's always cased and I check my humidifiers weekly. It has made it through Kansas City 12% humidity winters and Phoenix 15% humidity summers. Not a fan of the friction tuners, but they are part of the instrument's charm so I stick with them.

    I still have my Koalana soprano, purchased in December of 2012. Absolutely no problems at all, it still looks as good as the day I received it. The label clearly shows it was a Thai made Koalana. It sounds even better nw than when I purchased it.
