UKE Republic was the first to premier the Ohana CK-35-8 Solid Mahogany Taro Patch Concert Ukulele at the Tampa Bay Ukulele Getaway 2016. It was met with much applause and interest. Daniel Ward takes it out for a spin (below).
Ohana Taro Patch Eight String Concert CK-35-8
Its here! First to Uke Republic, Ohana brings us another classic- Taropatch! These haven't seen production for some time.
Made popular in the early part of the 20th century, this eight string concert is tuned in unison C, so gg CC EE AA. Scale is concert.
The tone is ethereal with its chorus like tones driven by an all solid mahogany body. Gorgeous notes pour out with either finger style or strumming.
We love the featured slot head with classical styled geared machines. The satin finish is smooth and compliments this rich toned solid mahogany instrument.
