Kohala Deluxe Solid Top Baritone Acoustic Electric Ukulele

Size Me Up
Sizing Information

Soprano -Soprano is the smallest of the four ukulele body sizes and is the traditional ukulele size.  The Honu Soprano is perfect for kids learning ukulele or for adults who prefer the brighter tone of a traditional ukulele.

Concert -Concert ukuleles are currently the most popular ukulele body size worldwide.  Bigger than a soprano but smaller than a tenor, a concert uke is the perfect middle ground for most players.  This size is suitable for all ages, though small children may be better suited to a soprano.

Tenor -Tenor ukuleles are exploding in popularity thanks to the full, deep sound produced by their larger body size.  Bigger than the concert, the tenor is great for teenagers and adults that are looking for the most volume from their ukulele and extra space for their fingers on the fretboard.

Baritone -As the name suggests, a baritone ukulele is the largest and deepest sounding of all of the ukulele sizes.  Usually tuned like the highest four strings of a guitar (DGBE), rather than the GCEA tuning found on most ukes, a baritone is great if you have a background in guitar because you won't have to learn any new chord shapes.  They are also very fun if you are a ukulele player looking to experiment with a different tone.

Acacia has long been one of the most popular tonewoods used on higher end ukuleles and it's easy to see why.  Visually striking and tonally rich, each piece of acacia has its own characteristics, making each instrument built with it unique.  For our Kohala Deluxe series, we have paired the all acacia body with abalone style purfling and rosette and flame maple binding.  As with all Honolua Ukuleles, it includes premium features designed to produce the best tone possible at an affordable price, including solid acacia top for greater volume and better tone, bone nut and saddle for better clarity and sustain, open back machine heads for tuning precision and eco-friendly wood selections.

Model - Kohala

Kohala Series

The Kohala has all of the aesthetic upgrades of the Mano, including solid top, maple binding, gold tuners, and dual strap pins, but it’s built with acacia wood instead of mahogany. Acacia is revered for its beautiful, full tone and we’ve added abalone-style trim around the body.

    My Baritone uke

    So pleased with the performance aspects of this instrument. The design features make it comfortable to play. The silky smooth neck and mellow voice are exactly what I was hoping for.
    The quality of fine detail and finishing are somewhat disappointing. Some examples are uneven abalone, binding on back does not align with the back centre line at the neck heel And saw marks not sanded smooth on the back. However that said I love playing this uke and would not consider giving it back. Great value so far.

    showstopper

    I had the pleasure of testing out this baritone for a month now. I have since performed Live using the pick-up and recorded with a mic as well. Both give a deep clean sound that is hard to get in smaller instruments.

    Dave was incredibly helpful in making sure I got the ukulele I was looking for. I am glad I reached out first before making the purchase. The tune does not hold yet after some playing (i’ve been playing daily to condition it), but the built-in tuner has you covered if you dont tune by ear.

    Overall, it’s a showstopper and I’ve already introduced many people to the baritone ever since I brought it home!

    My first uke!

    This is the first uke i've ever owned and I've gotta say, i'm amazed! This thing is awesome, and priced way lower than any of guitar i've owned! It's super user-friendly since it's a baritone, and I already know how to play it being a long time guitarist! 10/10 for quality and bang for the buck! Definitely will recommend to everyone thinking of ordering a ukulele, regardless of type! Thanks again, fellas!

    Fantastic instrument

    Bought this for my hubby for his birthday. He absolutely loves it. Super pleased with the purchase and the customer service has been some of the best I've ever had. Fantastic experience all around. Will for sure be buying from them again soon.
