Elegance meets simplicity" - Ukulele virtuoso, Kalei Gamiao

The entire Koa Bird Series showcases the natural beauty of Hawaiian Koa without out too much "bling" which draws more attention to the rich caramel hue of the Koa wood.
Tonally, our Koa Models produce a rich balanced sound with clear overtones. A combination of warm mids, deep lows, and crystal clear trebles, allows for more playing versatility no matter the style or genre of music. Perfect for casual strumming and fingerstyle playing. If you are looking for more of a traditional sound that reminds you of a gentle breeze, palm trees swaying, and waves crashing in the background, the Koa Series is sure to bring a little bit of paradise to your home.
Hawaiian Koa is native to Hawaii, and famous for its exquisite appearance. This type of tone-wood is influenced by the age of the tree, the soil and even the level of elevation it grows in. These variances create darker grain patterns adding horizontal and vertical texture; and this color and striping creates the 3D like curly tiger or flame appearance. When played, Koa produce a sweet warm mid-range and thicker luscious highs. With time, Koa will unleash a comprehensively stunning warmer overtone.
aNueNue uses wood that has been naturally air dried and seasoned for 3-5 years before even being put into production. All of our solid wood pieces require time to open up and will develop a much more distinguished, and sophisticated harmonic tonal quality.
