KoAloha Custom Black Label Solid Koa Tenor Ukulele "Platinum Storm"
If you're looking for the best of the best, look no further, you found it. Not only are the Black Labels the most sought after ukuleles on the planet, they are extremely difficult to get.
Most KoAloha Black Labels are custom built to the exact specifications the customer wants, so it was sure luck that this one became available.
I have waited forever to have a Black Label here at store.ukelikethepros.com and this one did not disappoint.
This one is made of stunning dark quilted premium grade Hawaiian Koa. The more you look at this instrument at different angles and different light, the more amazing the wood grain looks. I only hope that the video and photos do this stunning instrument justice.
The other noticeable thing that jumps out at you is the beautiful silver abalone rosette and around the body. It's almost looks blue in some lights but the silver is a rare bonus and not something I see at all.
The black ebony binding brings the solid koa sides together nicely and the matching quilted wood pattern brings the whole instrument together.
The sound is absolutely spectacular. Due to the quality of the craftsmanship and the wood, the sound is focused, warm, and tight sounding. Every note and tone is perfectly balanced to create a symphony of overtones and resonance.
The KoAloha KTM-00 koa instruments are great instruments but this custom Black Label is like something I have never heard before.
The sound is sweeter than any other ukulele you'll hear.
As you see and hear in the video the sound is balanced not matter if your strumming chords, fingepicking or doing things up the neck. It holds each note with clarity and brilliance.
The Black Labels have a slightly smaller tenor body with a bigger ebony bridge, the Black Label logo on the headstock, and the ultra premium hip-shot geared tuners.
This is a one of a kind instrument that only comes around every so often and right now it can be the star of any ukulele collection.
