KoAloha Slimline Tenor with LR Baggs 5.0 Ukulele Pickup System ~ Deluxe Hardcase and Humidifier Included -

This is the NEW 2018 model with abalone logo inlay and an improved gloss finish. KoAloha has never looked so good! The tone? That same awesome KoAloha tenor sound people have been loving for many years. Check it out!

If it shows "In Stock", then the ukulele pictured AND in the video is now available!

Another amazingly successful design from the genius builders at KoAloha! It has a thinner body width but has tons of volume and body to the sound. Beyond having wonderful resonant qualities, this Hawaiian koa tenor uke is extra easy to play, and setup with a world class active ukulele pickup system!

This body is about half of the normal body width. However, you would never be able to tell from the sound. This model sounds just like the regular KoAloha tenor, but with just a touch more punch. The thinner body makes it extra comfortable to hold and play, and the LR Baggs 5.0 active pickup system is the latest, greatest amplification system to come to the ukulele world. This would make an excellent instrument for anyone looking for a high quality Hawaiian-made tenor that sounds great and is ready to plugin for recording or live use.

So the big question is....How does it compare in acoustic tone with the regular full body tenor KoAloha? We did a side-by-side recording of the two for you. Check it out! Note: This video was done a few years ago with different mics from our current setup, but the comparison within in the video will still show an equal comparison.

If you had yours eyes open for a good Hawaiian-made instrument, this one sounds great, feels great, and as you can see is a beautiful instrument!

We are selling this model with a hardcase and humidifier included!

Options

 

This is ukulele comes with the deluxe wooden Ko'olau CE slim tenor case which fits perfectly.

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+). This is suggested if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or if you are heat the air most of the day and night. For more info see our Ukulele Care link at the bottom of the site.

This ukulele comes from the factory with a plain fluorocarbon low G string set. If you prefer a certain string set that the ukulele does not come with, then buy the strings you want from strings section of the site, and let us know under Special Instructions that you want those on the uke. If you simply want your instrument to be a high g instead of a low, there is no extra charge. You can specifiy in Special instructions below.I f you are not sure, then check out this video blog: Comparing Hi G with Low G

Setup Options

 

Current Turnaround Time: Amount of time before shipping-
Full Setup: 6-10 Days
Full Setup RUSH: 2-4 days
Basic QC Only: 2-4 days

Basic Quality Control - $0.00 (Always Free)

BASIC QUALITY CONTROL covers inspecting the instrument for any major defects that would have been missed by the factory and any faults in construction that could potentially damage or limit the functionality of the instrument over time. Any defective instruments are rejected and replaced.  We make sure that each Ukulele meets the basic standard for a brand new instrument and will be ready to play once you receive it. A final cleanup is also included after inspection before packing and shipment.

Full Setup - $40.00 for Ukuleles Under $399 / Free for Ukuleles $399+ 


Includes:


-Overall QC evaluation: To find defects in construction as well as to get an overall view of the instrument and note the areas that need extra attention and adjustment during the setup.

-Saddle Adjustment: The height of the saddle is lowered to reduce the distance between the strings and the fretboard, making it easier to play than the factory setup, especially higher up the fretboard.

-Nut Slot Adjustment: The depth, width, and angle of the nut slots are adjusted to create a more comfortable playing experience especially on the lower frets.

-Fret Dressing: After adjusting the nut and saddle heights, high spots in the fretboard or uneven frets will potentially cause fret buzz, dead spots, or other unwanted problems. The frets are filed to create a more consistent level across the fretboard. We then crown the frets to return their rounded curvature back to the top of each fret creating a clear contact point for each string. We then smooth and polish the frets and condition the fingerboard to bring them back to new condition.

-Final Cleanup: We always do a final overall cleanup of the instrument to make sure it is in new condition and ready to play before it is prepared for shipment.

Rush Setup & Delivery - Additional $50.00
The RUSH SETUP AND DELIVERY service is for customers who would still like to receive everything included in the full setup but on a shorter time frame. One of our setup technicians will work overtime outside of normal business hours to complete the setup within 2-3 days of the order being placed and immediately hand it over to the shipping department for packing and shipment. The $50.00 rush charge is in addition to the cost of the full setup. 

Additional services (see individual product listings to add these services to your order)
