KoAloha Royal Pikakes – The Unboxing!

by Marialejandra Araujo

What are the Royal Pikakes?

The KoAloha Royal Pikakes are exactly the same as normal Pikake KoAloha ukulele models, but but they have upgraded satin Koa wood, satin Ebony Headplate, reverse Ko’Aloha 5 point crown at bottom of ebony fretboard, and upgraded KoAloha geared tuners.

Why is that important? There are 2 major reasons.

The first is that the Koa wood chosen for the Royal Pikake ukes is a nicer wood grain. Imperfections in the koa wood can be hidden or bluffed out of a high gloss uke. Since the satin pikake finish does not let you hide the imperfections the wood has to be cleaner and have a nicer look.

The second thing is that the satin finish allows the ukulele sing. It it believed that the high gloss finish, although it looks great, it can stifle the sound of the wood. The satin finish of the Royal Pikakes allow the wood to breathe and thus creates a purer and more magical tone.

CUSTOM SETUP – Each KoAloha comes with a factory setup BUT I strongly recommend adding a setup especially if you want the easiest playability, have arthritis, or are particular about your setups and want a low action (how close the strings are to the fretboard) please click the “ADD Custom Setup” on this page.

* REQUIRED FOR WARRANTY – I cannot stress how important a humidifier is and I HIGHLY encourage you to get one. No matter where you live humidifiers not only protect your investment but also help the warranty process go smoother because you have taken the steps to ensure the safety and protection of your ukulele. If you ever have to file a claim with Kanilea the first question they will ask if you have a humidifier.

* Either the Oasis OH-18 (OH-32 for extra dry areas) or the Boveda Humidifier are recommended and available here at Click “ADD Humidifier

*A PICKUP (several brands available) – click ADD Pickup . Normal install times are 2-3 weeks. If you want your instrument sooner please use the RUSH pickup option.
