There are two features of the Lohanu Soprano Ukulele that make it distinctive from the ukes above, it’s made from Sapele and it has a slightly arched back. These two factors give it a noticeably different tone than the ukes featured above.

Sapele is a lot like mahogany. It has a warm tone with a strong mid-range presence, making it a more versatile than the tonewoods like cedar, spruce, or rosewood.

However, Sapele has a slightly brighter presence and a greater presence of overtones.

This is an oversimplification, but think of mahogany as having a “woodier” tone while Sapele has a more piano-like sound.

Key Features

  • Top: Sapele
  • Body: Sapele
  • Neck: Sapele
  • Fretboard: Rosewood
  • Frets: 15
  • Extras: Gig Bag, Picks, Strap, Tuner

Pros
Thanks to its arched back, this ukulele has a more focused tone and improved projection. This mid-range focused tone is appreciated by many users, especially when jamming with other musicians. There are also many who appreciate the extras which include a gig bag, picks, a strap, and a tuner.

Cons
There are a few owner reports of build quality inconsistencies, which may be due to shipping/handling issues. Tuning issues also come up, mostly from musicians who expect more from this Uke.

Overall
With its very high ratings, it's a no brainer for us to recommend this ukulele for those who want a really good soprano ukulele.
