In a world overflowing with 'ME TOO' Cookie Cutter ukuleles
the Ohana  SK-28 is a breath of fresh air... the tone, the feel, the look, really are a world away from generic mass produced blandness.

The Rope binding looks fantastic.  Rope binding is difficult to do and it adds to build time and expense but its worth it.

And the Centre Rope binding "Racing Stripe" is set into the length of the neck, the Ohana Logo moves to the back of the headstock, Visual Beauty trumps self promotion.

And at $425 AUD somewhat of a bargain as my Package Includes Hardcase, Setup, Tuner, Shipping within Australia

Since it Launched overseas the SK-28 has been a hot seller for Ohana.  Now available in Australia, keeping up with demand has been the hard part.

Every ukulele is checked for quality of finish, Tuned, Play Tested and Setup for best playability. 

YES Setup ... It Makes ALL the Difference."

The SK-28 Soprano is another homage to a vintage instrument, inspired by  the instruments introduced to Hawaii by the likes of legendary luthiers Manuel Nunes and Augusto Dias.

The 'Figure 8' or 'Peanut' body shape is a true classic, it is the closest representation of the Portuguese instruments brought to the Hawaiian islands.

Dias and Manuel Nunes the earliest ukulele makers and crafted ukuleles for more than 40 years and are legend amongst ukulele  enthusiasts.

History tells that Samuel Kamaka and Nunes own son, Leonardo, were apprentices and continued making quality ukuleles. In 1998, the Ukulele Hall of Fame inducted Manuel Nunes into their honorees.

'Louis Wu of Ohana Music has come up with a fantastic homage to the 'original' ukulele, made  in the traditional style.'

"If you are serious about your ukulele playing and uke collecting then a 'Peanut' body style soprano is a must have for you." 

This soprano has such a pleasing warm tone and easy playability that you soon realise that the old master Luthiers really were onto something good.
