Kamaka Concert Ukuleles are more popular than the "original" ukulele, the soprano. For many players the concert ukulele offers the best of both the soprano and its big tenor brother. Compared to a soprano, the scale on the concert is a bit longer, which means the frets are a little further apart, making chord positions easier since your fingers have more room on the fretboard. The bigger body gives more bass response than a soprano as well. But unlike the tenor, the concert size still retains that charming trebly “bubbling” tone that made the ukulele so popular in the first place.
Like all new Kamaka instruments, the HF-2 is impeccably crafted. The top, back and sides are nicely figured Hawaiian koa and they have a thin satin-sheen finish. This shows the koa grain and color to advantage and is yet another example of how the Kamaka crew keeps raising the bar and making their ukuleles even better. Includes a Kamaka hardshell case.
