Koa is the wood of choice for traditional ukulele craftsmen. The crisp tone produced is the prize at the end of the tunnel for many players. This is why we created the NK series with its highly figured natural solid koa top and koa back and sides. However since traditions are made to be broken we also developed the SM series. The difficulties experienced when working with spalted mango were more than worth the tone that was created. ?
