Kohala Deluxe Solid Top Baritone Ukulele

Size Me Up
Sizing Information

Soprano -Soprano is the smallest of the four ukulele body sizes and is the traditional ukulele size.  The Honu Soprano is perfect for kids learning ukulele or for adults who prefer the brighter tone of a traditional ukulele.

Concert -Concert ukuleles are currently the most popular ukulele body size worldwide.  Bigger than a soprano but smaller than a tenor, a concert uke is the perfect middle ground for most players.  This size is suitable for all ages, though small children may be better suited to a soprano.

Tenor -Tenor ukuleles are exploding in popularity thanks to the full, deep sound produced by their larger body size.  Bigger than the concert, the tenor is great for teenagers and adults that are looking for the most volume from their ukulele and extra space for their fingers on the fretboard.

Baritone -As the name suggests, a baritone ukulele is the largest and deepest sounding of all of the ukulele sizes.  Usually tuned like the highest four strings of a guitar (DGBE), rather than the GCEA tuning found on most ukes, a baritone is great if you have a background in guitar because you won't have to learn any new chord shapes.  They are also very fun if you are a ukulele player looking to experiment with a different tone.

Model - Kohala

Kohala Series

The Kohala has all of the aesthetic upgrades of the Mano, including solid top, maple binding, gold tuners, and dual strap pins, but it’s built with acacia wood instead of mahogany. Acacia is revered for its beautiful, full tone and we’ve added abalone-style trim around the body.

    Boy.. Whew!!.. Done a lot!! Of reseaching, comparing, noodling.
    This deluxe baritone is grrr8 !
    And yes. I did spend som time on the frets and lightly rounding the fretboard edges and an over all sanding away the sharp edges-everywhere with 1000 grit. Hey iam a guitar nut hobbiest! I play around making my instrument right for me as everyone should who love their instrument.
    Nut was correctly cut. And though Iam tempted to, loosen the strings and remove the bridge saddle and a couple light passes on the bottom side with 1000 grit or so should
    quickly lower the action. Proceed. with care.
    A beautiful instrument with this solid acacia.. Love this tone and find transfering the cord and scales of a 6 string.. Highest 4..a big boon with immediate enjoyment.
    Gold color of the tuners and strap buttons are my only gripe.. that tone of gold, it looks plastic.
    Yep. I would look into Honolua for a future purchase.

    Gorgeous!

    I am in love with the look, the feel, and the sound of this instrument! The acacia wood is stunning, the maple binding with the abalone.... it's a work of art! This is my first baritone ukulele. I had been looking at them for months and months, undecided, until I found this model and HAD to have it. I am so glad i ordered it. The tone is deep and rich. Gorgeous!

    I also ordered an electric tenor (for 50% off) from the acacia Koaloha line with a minor defect that is equally lovely. I'm so happy.

    Baritone Kohala

    UKULELE PROS

    My kohala baritone arrived yesterday. In spite of spending 10 days in the postal system it had held its tuning right out of the box. The acacia wood is beautiful and the grain is perfectly matched. The only negative is that a small area on one side has a rough finish, but generally the build is good. The sound is deep and rich, with good volume and sustain. The fret board is easy play - no buzzing strings and bar cords much easier than my old instrument. The classy gig bag is a bonus. Well worth the reasonable price.

    Baryton Kohala

    Great ukulele for this price. Very very nice Acacia wood grain, nicely built, very good and easy to use machines. Great sustain! Love the engraved brand name on the head, this is very classy, such an expensive detail look. i like the light color of the mahogany neck, great contrast with the color of acacia.
    Very good service from Dave, easy to get answers from him and I like the quick and included delivery in the price.

    Lovely gift from Santa

    This is a beautiful baritone ukulele and the sound is wonderful. The acacia wood has lovely grain and colour. It feels comfortable to hold and the strap pins are a great addition. I'm enjoying it immensely! It was ordered with a stand a few days before the free stand was offered but it was honored by refunding the cost of the stand. Your customer service was excellent and much appreciated!
