Uke comparison

Paul Maynard — Feb 27, 2015 03:36PM HST

I bought a Pono RTSH5 from you guys a couple of tears ago and I really like the cedar/rosewood sound (Andrew, you recommended it ahead of the maple/spruce equivalent) I feel I'm ready to step up to a handmade uke but it occurred to me recently that the Pono is all solid wood, seeing the build process in the Java factory is so high class I got to wondering, what will the differences be? Will there be really discernible differences? So my question is, can you tell me what you gain in terms of sound and playability when you move up to a handmade (probably Hawaiian and probably ko'olau or koaloha) ukulele.

Each ukulele has it's own tone and you might get a bigger sound from another uke, maybe not, but you will get a different sound.. I think the differences will be discernible but am not sure they will be closer to what you want.
