Meet my new ukulele. It's a koaloha soprano. It was first made in March of this year. Solid koa wood body, mahogany neck, semi-gloss finish, ebony nut and saddle, Schaller spring-loaded tuners, ~7" lower bout, ~13-3/4" scale. It also looks real perty.
And to show off the sound, this week's ukulele recording is an instrumental- I Dreamt I Dwelt In Marble Halls, from the opera The Bohemian Girl. Of course, this recording doesn't really show off the sound, because my current recording set up sucks. But you can see it in person the next time I have a game night.

Next weekend I'll have an original tune for you. For now, I hope you find this auditorily pleasant.
