The Royal Pikake is a special series by KoAloha. It features the ebony headstock plate, crown cut fretboard, and the buttery smooth Pikake finish!
The Satin Pikake finish allows the ukulele to really ring and resonate. It is a unique finish that still accents the beautiful wood grain! But it does not dampen the hard punchy attack that is classic to the Koa!
Mango is a very unique tone-wood! It has a warm, smooth, velvety tone. In other brands they can be muted and bright when overly-glossed or over-built. But KoAloha treats Mango the way Mango is supposed to be treated. It is made light and with the proper amount of finishing, so in my opinion the best mangos to be found the ukulele world over are KoAloha Mangos. The light build means the ukulele has a lot of volume and resonance. The tone is warm and rich and full. And it has the nice smooth tone of a mango without sacrificing the volume! You are going to love it! The Pikake finish also means this ukulele will be a little more bold and have a lot of volume and more attack than the gloss counterpart.
This KoAloha is priced a little higher because it includes the KoAloha Branded Hard Case, and an upgraded Oasis Humidifier to keep your new ukulele safe. So there is no need to order a hard case or a proper humidifier. You will be covered for just a little extra money. And, as always, my setup is completely FREE! And it is always advanced! Your ukulele deserves my individual attention and it will get just that!
The uke you see in the picture is the uke you get. No surprises. So the beautiful quilted Koa that you see on this model is the combination you will be getting. I take individual pictures of every ukulele I sell because I think it is important for you to have as close to a local buying experience as possible.
