Thread: The NEW KoAlohas

  1. #1

    Default The NEW KoAlohas

    What do yall think about the changes to the KoAlohas? The Koa collection now has a wider bout and its joined at the 14th instead of 15th fret. Do you think this will substantively change the sound or tone of the KoAlohas? Anyone tempted to replace their current KoAloha ukes? Im asking this for a friend...

    here's a link to one of the new KTM's

    And here's the YouTube video set to start at 35:34 where they start to discuss and sample the KTM

    It really does sound beautiful. I'm going to need to compare it to my KTM to see if I hear a difference.

    Played back to back I prefer the tone of the new design. Very sweet and harp-like. I want one! I like the KoAloha more than the $3650 I'Iwi they demonstrated (it was a bit bright for my taste).

    Wow, that really does sound beautiful (and of course, it's being played by a great player). I would love to have me one of those....

    For all of you KoAloha owners that are now going to rid yourself of those old crummy tenors to buy a new one, I nominate myself to become the world’s first KoAloha rescue home for all of those unwanted instruments...

    Is there any word from KoAloha where they explain the differences?

    Does anyone know why Koalohas are not being played by the pros? All I see are kamakas and kanileas.

    Funny, but I was just thinking that. Owners will be dumping their old-fashioned KoAlohas for the new, improved models. I'll stick with what I have.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!
