"My Ohana Tenor has been my touring buddy from coast-to-coast. It's playability, tone and feel are everything I look for in a ukulele -- both plugged in and acoustic. Not to mention the Flamed Koa is absolutely stunning! Whether you're out on the road playing to thousands of people, or simply strumming by a bonfire -- you can't go wrong with an Ohana."
