Sitting proudly at the top of the Makai range, the 24 series is a tribute to the Hawaiian heritage. Featuring all solid Hawaiian Koa body, the traditional tone will melt even the most discerning ukulele critic. Highly regarded as Makai’s best work, this series of ukulele is as good as you can get.
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.
