Product Review (submitted on August 3, 2017):
This is such a special ukulele, I felt the need to let others know about it. Thanks to Andrew who listened to what I wanted from a ukulele, he recommended this one. I am enjoying it tremendously. The look is beautiful in its simple, understated elegance. The lovely sound hole compliments the soft beauty of the spruce and acacia woods. It is a piece of art that I never tire of looking at. It is very comfortable to play and the sound is warm yet clear, articulate with excellent projection. It constantly beckons to be played. I can't even imagine, if it sounds this good now, how it will sound when it is more seasoned. The quality of this instrument is exceptional for it's price. Andrew and the entire HMS team are friendly, knowledgable and easy to work with. It arrived perfectly set up. So, if you are looking for a professional quality tenor ukulele that is great value, I highly recommend the Koaloha Opio Spruce and Acacia tenor ukulele. I would not buy a ukulele from anyone other than HMS. The experience has been so positive for me that I purchased a second ukulele from them.
