Lohanu Soprano Ukulele Bundle Kit (Discontinued)
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.

- Extras: Gig Bag, Picks, Strap, Tuner
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.
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.
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.
