Mr Mai M-M80 all solid koa concert ukulele. We've included a FREE hard shell case into the price. Koa is THE most sought after ‘Tone-Wood’ for the Ukulele. That legendary Hawaiian sound owes so much to this beautiful timber, and that’s partly because the Koa tree is Indigenous to the Hawaiin Islands themselves!
The sound produced, is almost ‘creamy’ in its mellow tone, and all the world’s ukulele masters own and play Koa ukes - and that includes World #1 Jake Shimabukuro, who is (you guessed it), Hawaiian born! The M-M80 from Mr. Mai offers ALL of that legendary mellow tone, plus it boasts some wonderfully ‘classy’ design features, such as its single-slotted headstock, Koa Wood tuning pegs!, and bevelled body. The overall shape is still traditional though, because it’s the natural beauty of the Koa wood itself, which takes centre stage.
Fretboard and bridge are made of ebony, and the build quality, and glossy finish are truly superb. But, seeing as you’re here shopping for a Koa ukulele - what will surely surprise you most is the price! Check out the video below for yourself, for an overview of how it looks and sounds, and please let us know what you think! (It's one of Ukulele Bobby's favourites).
