Starting back in 2004, Leolani has grown in the rich traditions of its homegrown predecessors. Taking cues from Hawaii’s rich culture, Leolani strives to bring the “Aloha Spirit” to those looking for a quality, yet affordable ukulele.
Through many years of trial and error, we believe that we have perfected the art of making affordable ukuleles without compromising the quality of the look and sound of the ukulele. These two elements are key when deciding to purchase a ukulele.
From the warm and bright treble, to the deep and rich bass, these two facets played together comprise the “Leolani Tone”
Mahogany Wood – Mahogany has a generally straight grain and is usually free of voids and pockets. It has a reddish-brown colour, which darkens over time, and displays a reddish sheen when polished. It is also very durable being used for the neckpieces in most ukuleles. It is also used to make the bodies of the ukulele as well due to its warm tone, with clear bass and treble.
Most of the Mahogany being used today is from Eastern Africa due to its dryer climate: make it a harder and more robust wood, making it more responsive to the player. Because of its low overtone, it has a bright and lively sound. Also extreme curl can be found with this wood, similar to that of Curly Koa.
