Here’s what went down at this year’s NAMM show at the Anaheim Convention Center!

As per usual, we had many talented artists stop by and jam with some of their favorite Ohana instruments!

New Cynthia Lin Signature Ukulele

This year we introduced the latest addition to the Cynthia Lin Signature Line — the CK-35CG-CL. Like its predecessor, it features Worth brown strings, Cynthia’s signature, and floral inlay design on the fretboard, reminiscent of Cynthia’s floral trademark hair accessory.

This new concert has an all-solid build with a cut-away and a gloss finish that highlights the Mahogany graining.

Check it out in the video below:

New Performance Line:

Ohana debuts the new Performance Line which features a solid Spruce top paired with Rosewood, Mahogany, or Walnut back and sides. These ukuleles sport a classic slotted headstock and earthy color tones that pair well with gorgeous abalone inlay and cream binding. Available in concert, tenor, and baritone scales.



Benny Chong takes the BK-70R for a spin at our booth:



If you missed our earlier announcement, the classic Limited Edition TK-70KE got upgraded for 2019. Featuring Grover geared tuners, abalone inlay, and a Fishman Kula pickup, this tenor uke is a must-have for the serious performer!

Ohana TK-70KE 2019 Version



A truly innovative and unique instrument, this tenor scale maintains classic ukulele tuning while offering a booming voice, compliments of the baritone body. A solid spruce top is bound in cream binding and tightlined black and white purfling. A sweet floral inlay adorns the fretboard for a touch of sparkle. A high gloss finish and slotted headstock with Grover gears finish out the instrument. The new BKT-70G has a warm booming voice sure to charm.

Ohana had the pleasure of working with Grammy Award winning bluegrass artist Marcy Marxer, to create a baritone that fits the needs of bluegrass players and her advanced students. This all-solid Mahogany study in high-gloss features a cutaway for easy access to those upper frets.

More possibilities now available with the new Ohana DIY Pineapple Ukulele Kit! This kit features a concert body that provides more space than previously possible, and a unique die-cut crown shaped headstock.

Ohana has made carrying your ukulele a fashionable option with bright new colors and bag designs! 25mm of poly foam protects your ukulele from damage in transit. Based on feedback from our own traveling artists, a large front pocket at the bottom is perfect for bringing along cables or your notebook, and a small upper pocket is the ideal space for stashing a tuner or cell phone. Quality backpack-style straps allow for comfortable carrying across town or across the globe.
