    Default TkiTki HKT Hawaiian Koa Tenor - REVIEW

    A first for me with this brand and a very special ukulele. Japanese quality control and precision in spades!

    I recently saw the videos from the Southern Ukulele store on these. They looked and sounded great. The mango series was very impressive.

    Really nice to see that there's an alternative to these high-quality Martin style ukes. If I didn't have my Kiwaya soprano (and if I wasn't a complete Kiwaya fan boy) I'd be all over the soprano version of this uke.

    It's quite amazing how clear and crisp the sound of that tenor. Every note is coming through so clearly but there's still a lot of really nice mid-range as well. Seems to me that this brand has quite a unique sound to their ukes. The same goes for their mango series as well from what I've heard of them.

    Outstanding tone and quality. Really made me take a step back in surprise. I had heard they were good, but not THIS nice.

    Wow, I rarely see you this turned on by a review product. This uke is really something. Not a fan of pin bridges.....but....
    If i bought one, I wonder where i could hide it....

    Agreed, bazmaz is definitely into this uke judging from the review! And really, what's not to like? I find it interesting that it's a tenor but can feel like a soprano in some ways.

    The sound reminds me of my Takumi TT-1K. Smaller bodied tenor. Light weight. Bright, punchy but not at all muddy when strummed.

    As you say, very similar to the Kiwaya tenors as well.

    Great review Baz. Thanks.
