Mahalo was founded in 1999, interestingly enough in Nagoya, Japan. The vision for the company was to design proper ukuleles at an affordable price point. Musical instruments rather than toys. Since then Mahalo have gone on to become one of the biggest ukulele brands in the world and have done so by staying true to their vision of playable yet affordable instruments.
The Java series feature nato bodies which provide a unique tone to these ukuleles. This model has a natural satin finish which looks classy and feels great. The Java series feature Graph Tech NuBone XB bridge saddles for projection and come fitted with Aquila Super Nylgut strings for a full, balanced sound.
The soprano is the classic ukulele shape, it's also the smallest of the main sizes. Anyone can play a soprano but it's especially suited to smaller players such as children. They also have that classic, bright, ringing tone that you know and love.
