While most makers offer laminate wood body in this price range, the Kmise Hawaii Concert Ukulele comes with a solid spruce top.

And while other makers feature basic preamps, the built-in active electronics of this ukulele comes packed with a 3-band EQ and a nifty tuner, which allows for tone shaping and for easy tuning right on the ukulele.

It is also worth mentioning that the nut and saddle are made of bone instead of plastic, which further ups the value.

Finally, its solid top features artwork designs for better overall visual appeal.

  • Top: Solid Spruce
  • Body: Sapele

Pros

Value for money is the main reason why users rate the Kmise Hawaii Concert highly, it looks good on paper with its solid spruce top, and looks good in person thanks to its top wood artwork.
