Kumu Koa Slimline Concert w/ Pickup & FX (TUX Finish 2987)

Pictures show the exact instrument available here. 

This is a new model koa concert in from Kumu, a line from our friends at Leolani. We've carried their ukes in the store for over a decade now in the store, and they keep getting better and better! So we are now offering them here on the website for all of you to experience these excellent instruments with our specialty service, the Gold Standard in Ukulele Setup. This concert has a slimmer body which makes it easy to reach around. And even with the slender body, it has a sweet tone we think you'll love. 

Features include high-quality Hawaiian laminate koa over mahogany, real abalone, and fitted with a bone nut and saddle. The "TUX" finish is a smooth semi-gloss natural look and feel that shows off the beauty of the wood. But, there's an added bonus with this uke, a new breakthrough in fun.

The pickup system is a new collaboration from Leolani and Double. It's an under saddle active pickup system that sounds great for amplifying or recording, but it's much more than that. It gives you really beautiful effects; reverb, chorus, and delay and they are adjustable and tasteful. You can use them plugged in OR NOT plugged in! Even without plugging in, playing with the effects is great! It ranges from fun to inspiring and we think you're gonna love it!

Kalei goes over this new instrument along with the electronics and options. 

This pickup allows the player to have complete control over the sound and audio effects of their ukulele, even when unplugged from the amp. 4 control dials: volume, reverb, chorus, and delay. A built-in rechargeable lithium battery gives about 10 hours of playtime. To recharge, plug in the included quarter-inch cable to a USB charger. 2 hours time for a full charge. There will eventually be a time to replace the lithium battery. With regular plugged in playing that can be expected in 3-5 years.

We have built up a loyal clientele for our Gold Standard in Ukulele Setup. We ensure you get the absolute best for your money! This includes saddle and nut heights, fretwork, intonation checks, and many more things to make these instruments play, sound, and look as great as possible. For this middle price range; it means you can really get close to a high-end concert feel from our work. And always, we are dedicated to giving you honest and expert service and advice!

    Setup Options

    Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide, at no extra cost, on all ukuleles we ship out. However, this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We now offer "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options, along with current turnaround times for each, at the link- HERE.

    When you buy this ukulele you can get a gig bag or canvas covered hard case or Oahu Black Wood Case at an additional discount.  (Not required but suggested.) The UkeCrazy gig bag and canvas covered hard case can be seen in our cases category under the accessories tab at the top of this page. Other cases can also be chosen there. 

    One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Humistat, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc..), or areas with winter seasons, especially if you are heating the air in your house. For more info refer to the ukulele care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, you need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

    Put a note in the special instructions, if you have any preferences that our setup or shipping department should be aware of. 

    After adding this instrument to your cart, create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

    Under the accessories tab customize this instrument by add a strap button.

    Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your cart reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free Fedex 2 day shipping. 2 days is the time in transit.

    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)
    Re-stringing: We will replace the factory installed stock string set with a new set of your choosing. Select the “replace stock strings” option when adding your desired string set to the shopping cart.

    Strap Button Installation: 1-2 buttons are installed to allow the use of a strap. Color options available. 

    Pickup installation: for players who would like the option to play or record with amplification.

    Friction Tuner Upgrade (friction tuners only): We offer upgrade options for select instruments with friction tuners to be retrofitted with new geared tuners for better precision and comfort when tuning.

    Left-handed Setup: Left-handed setups are also available upon request. Occasionally an additional charge may be added for compensated saddles on select models.
