    That's a great looking KTM-00.

    It's the new 14 frets to the body and lower positioned bridge design?

    I think they changed the position of the uni-brace as well. The uni-brace on my 2004 Crown Bridge tenor is somewhat thick. It is noticeably thinner on my 2017 KTM-00. Did they thin it any more for the Newest KTM-00?

    I'm quite curious about how the newly revised model sounds compared to the previous designs. The recordings I've listened to seem to have a little more balanced sound, especially in the mid range. But that's from video recordings.

    They all retain the trademark Ko'Aloha sound.

    I tried the older model before and it was a bit too boomy and over powering for me. I now own the new model and it feels better balanced both sound and feel wise and I love it. A bit sweeter and warmer, more balanced in the lower tones. Maybe a tiny bit quieter because the lower range isn't as prominent?
    Both are superb instruments, the newer model just fit my style better. And of course this is just my own opinion and others will vary. No offence meant to pre and post 2020 builds.

    Thanks. I revised my post and saw yours come up. Nice evaluation. Do you prefer the 14 fret neck?

    I can't say I notice it much really, don't think it would be a deal breaker. But now I come to look, most of my ukuleles are also 14 frets to the body.
    I do really like the difference the new design seems to have made though.
