Life is too short to play a crappy instrument;
Happy Strumming is where it’s at. 

"Ohana Ukuleles, Made To Be Played" is the company slogan... and they are not messing about.

Ohana ukuleles are some of the most inexpensive solid wood ukuleles around, and the TK-35G-5 is all solid mahogany, not just the top, but the back and sides too.  A deep gloss finish and fine details adorn this solid mahogany tenor ukulele with outstanding tone and playability.

Ahhh,   every ukulele player's conundrum... High-G or Low-G!?
With Ohana's unique 5-String model, featuring both G's, all the guess work has been taken out!

Personally I think it sounds amazing...Very loud and boy that low and High G string combo is fantastic, Jangle from the Octave G Strings but you still have single course of C E and A strings for picking and runs etc...

Very happy to have added this model to the range of Ohana ukuleles available in Australia.

Well having the g strings doubled up (similar to a 12 string guitar), with the high G and low G an octave apart adds a much fuller bodied rhythm tone, gives it a beautiful and interesting sound but still a ukulele sound..

The Ohana TK-35G-5 has a big sound with a bit of jangle. It’s actually a very loud instrument.
The other strings are normal single and so the cea strings do not sound different to the normal 4 string ukulele.

The uke is a tenor, and is made from solid mahogany, imparting a more full tone but still a bright attack to notes… very rock.

Being a Solid Wood ukulele it will sound even better as it opens up over the years. As the wood dries out it becomes stiffer and lighter and become even better at transferring string energy to the sound waves we hear.

The headstock on the 5 string is visibly longer than an ordinary ukulele's headstock to accommodate the extra 5th string tuning key.

This is a top of the line instrument with its beautiful gloss finish that makes it look as good as it sounds.

Like with all Ohana instruments the workmanship is superb. Ohana ukuleles may be made in China but they all travel to you via Ohana Head office in the USA where they go through a detailed premium adjustment, ready to play.

TK-70KE Ohana Tenor Ukulele with FREE Hardcase and FREE Setup

TK-70KE Ohana Tenor Ukulele
TK-70KE Ohana Tenor Ukulele
The TK-70KE Tenor Size Ukulele comes from Ohana Ukuleles Limited Edition Range of Premium ukuleles.
RRP is $650 In Australia.
FREE quality hardcase and FREE setup included.

Call 0434 306 920 or email 

Featuring a combination of Solid Spruce wood top with mildly flamed Koa wood back and sides results in a bright tone with the Koa offering that big sustain and full sound.
TK-70KE Ohana Tenor Ukulele
The faux tortoise shell binding creates a a really upmarket look too separating the classy Spruce Top and the golden honey toned Koa Wood sides.

The quality Belcat Preamp of the Pick-up is fitted perfectly into the side of the ukulele.

The gloss finish is very good too, it will offer a strong long-lasting protection of the woods and it is applied smooth as glass.

Gold tuning Machines with small black buttons suit the look of the headstock.  Also the small head buttons are so much easier to use, a thoughtful touch.

TK-70KE Ohana Tenor UkuleleThe TK-70KE is an Electric Acoustic ukulele and features pick-up with a 3 band eq with on-board pre-amp, output is strong and clear, with plenty of range in tones available from the Treble and Bass sliders, from Dark Smooth Jazz to Bright Country or Funk tones can be had.

Keeping with the quality focus of Ohana the Ukulele is fitted with a bone nut and saddle.  Bone is not very easy to work with at all, shaping and cutting bone is difficult precision work , and time consuming.  Fitting plastic parts would have been much easier and quicker BUT when "ultimate tone" is the goal, then fitting quality components  is essential, no mater how much longer they take to shape.

The gloss finished applied is smooth and blemish free.  To achieve a fine glass like gloss finish takes time and lots of it, with many coats of spray and hand sanding between coats required to get a finish this smooth.

Aquila Thundergut UBass Strings, Second hand. Off to ebay Auction.

I removed these Aquila Thundergut UBass strings from a UBass for a customer who wanted the Silver Rumblers as part of my included Setup.

I initially, but mistakenly, fitted the Thunderguts, but had to remove them when I discovered my error in the order requirements. 

The customer brought back his UBass and I made the string changeover. They have been sitting in my string drawer ever since.

So off to EBAY AUCTION they go so someone can get some pleasure/use out of them. 

CLICK TO GO TO ebay AUCTION Aquila Thundergut UBASS Strings

So here you have a set of  'used'  Aquila Thunderguts that need a good home.

Aquila Thundergut U-BASS Strings
Aquila strings of Italy introduced this new set, which is made with a proprietary plastic compound; a dense elastic-plastic blend. The result is a string with density, stability, and the ability to resonate at very low frequencies.

(Fits all 4 String U-BASSES)

  • Dominant strings are probably the most popular strings in the world. 
  • They are the default choice for many violinists, including in various combinations with other strings. 

The DOMINANT string is a highly flexible, multi-strand synthetic core string for tonal warmth and feel of gut and is impervious to changes in humidity, allowing for stable intonation and long life.

The sound is soft, clear and rich in overtones.

DOMINANT strings, widely recognized as “the reference standard”, are legendary for distinctive tone and playability.
