At long last, after 2 years of gradual adjustment by NAMM, this year's event was back in its rightful place and time. Our team felt the palpable excitement of doing the show and seeing old and new faces in January, shortly into the new year, and it was refreshing to meet with dealers, distributors, and our loyal Ohana fans again after all this time. Read on for highlights of some of the exciting things that took place at the Ohana booth this year!


Featured at NAMM

Officially launched in April 2023 immediately following NAMM, the Ohana Custom Shop (OCS, for short) Made-in-USA ukuleles quickly became the talk of the town, and this year we are proud to unveil even more unique designs that are truly one-of-a-kind. Here are some of the ones displayed at the show!

You can even build your own custom as many have already done, together with our in-house luthier and design team who will walk you through everything from wood choice to special features. Simply get in touch via phone or email to get started!

Keep your eyes peeled on the OCS website and Instagram page this month for many more new releases on the way!


New at NAMM!

Following a successful debut during NAMM 2023 as prototypes, the Ohana 6 Series and 7 Series have been cemented as new production models in concert and tenor sizes (CK-6 / CK-7 and TK-6 / TK-7, respectively).

With its classic slotted headstock and elegant appearance, wrapped in a clean gloss finish and sporting a contoured bevel edge, the 6 Series delivers high-end specs at a price that won't break the bank.


At a similar price point, the 7 Series combines vibrance and beauty with generous abalone inlay outlining solid acacia wood, underlined by a high gloss finish and featuring a sharp florentine cutaway for showing off your playing skills.

BONUS: For the Limited Edition and rare wood collectors out there, get ready for these new-models-to-come! Sizing up from our existing CK-450QEL Quilted Eucalyptus, CK-450SMP Spalted Maple, and PKC-150SMO Spalted Mango Pineapple models, these tenor size versions were unveiled as prototypes this year.



Artists and their Ohana ukuleles

As always, we were honored to be joined by our family of Ohana Artists and Friends of Ohana who are local to the area. These musicians have each worked tirelessly on their individual musical journeys with the help of their Ohana ukuleles, so do take some time to check their artist profiles in the links above. Thank you to each one who came to contribute a few songs and help demo our ukuleles!
