Kamoa Ukulele Shop, Kapaa, Kauai

New addition to the Troy family. A Koaloha soprano ukulele. Mary Fran bought it for me at Kamoa Ukuleles in Kapaa, Kauai on Monday. So maybe this should be Ukulele Monday. It was our last day on Kauai and I wasn’t able to post until now.

Here it is: The body is koa, The neck and head are rosewood. the fretboard is ebony. The inlays are pua abalone. She sounds as good as she looks.

Koaloha koa uke

I had it in the back of my mind that I wanted a Kamaka. Kamoa had only one Kamaka. This one just sounded better.

Look at the beautiful grain of the koa body.

Now I need to name her. Any suggestions?

  1. She needs a Hawaiian name. The only Hawaiians I know have English names, so I’m no help. That is a lovely instrument.
