Our Hawaiian Koa series began in 1995 with one model, the humble soprano. Alvin handcrafted them one at a time and even made his own labels out of wood. While our ukulele has been through a series of improvements, they still ring with the same signature KoAloha sound. As a tonewood, koa produces a nice harmony of warmth and brightness.
The finger balance of these instruments is a fit for all types of music. From fingerpicking to strumming, from classical to jazz, the Hawaiian Koa series will play and sound great. All of our koa instruments are produced in our factory in Kaka'ako.

Here at Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12 point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
