What’s interesting is that even though Paul runs the KoAloha shop and the regular line of ukes they offer, his custom builds sound quite a bit different from standard production. He doesn’t use the “unibrace” construction, but instead builds with sort of a T bar bracing. I am not going to get in depth on the bracing but it is just to say that they are built different and you can hear it. While this still has the body and resonance of a standard KoAloha tenor, the black label has a darker tonality, a warm focus and a wonderful balance of rich sustain.

Aloha friends. A hui ho!
