The KoAloha Ukulele

Roy Sakuma wanted to combine the best elements of the various full-size ukuleles he’d played over the years while at the same time going beyond the instrument’s familiar sound.
The result? The KoAloha Ukulele.
Sakuma combined forces with friend, musician and craftsman Alvin Okami, who had already made a miniature ukulele that was fully playable. Together, they created the new, full-size KoAloha Ukulele.

Among the elements Sakuma and Okami have designed into the KoAloha are clarity of tone and acoustic volume, ease of playing and quality of appearance and detail. “It’s very clean when you hit the strings,” explains Sakuma. “There’s a very balanced sound, so you don’t hear one string dominating everything else.”

The KoAloha Ukulele is hand-crafted of native Hawaiian koa wood. Okami’s tremendous technical skills together with Sakuma’s 35 years of experience with the ukulele inspire their quest for excellence.
