Hawaiian Koa has been treasured for hundreds of years by the Hawaiians. They have used it for anything from outrigger canoes, paddles, boxes, furniture, to recently Ukuleles. It is an excellent tone wood which produces a rich, warm sound. Koa is renowned for its iridescent shimmer and luscious color which ranges from tan to warm gold with brown and black accents.
A dense tropical hardwood, Koa blends midrange focus with extra top-end brightness and chime. The more a Koa ukulele is played and opens up the more its midrange overtones add warmth and sweetness to its voice.
Adding a Solid Spruce face to this range, you get an exceptional combination of traditional island sounds with a modern, bright attack.
