Product Review (submitted on October 30, 2019):
I am a novice ukulele enthusiast. The ukulele has become a wonderful way for me to relax and connect to the aloha spirit. I've now owned this ukulele for long enough to give an honest opinion.
You would be hard pressed to find a better value at this price point. The build quality is top notch. The gloss finish makes the ziricote wood grain really candy to the eye. I am a fan of the cedar top. While having a slightly warmer tone than spruce, cedar can projects well with loudness and clarity that we all enjoy. Paduuk binding is a wonderful aesthetic contrast which I feel is pleasing and complementary. Kala and HMS really hit a home run with this uke and topped it off with the slotted head stock! Andrew and his crew set up my uke to play like a dream. I opted for the low G and couldn't be more pleased. Aloha from the sunshine state!
