This is a great little Ohana soprano, the SK-22Z, with solid spruce top and laminate zebrawood back and sides. The spruce top gives it punch and some fantastic volume, while the zebrawood is undeniably striking to look at. Add to the fact the geared tuners are effective, the neck and rosewood fingerboard are smooth and free playing, and the set up is good - and you have a great all rounder at a price that is appealing too.

The Ohana SK-22Z soprano ukulele has a bone nut and saddle which help the strings to ring out, and open geared tuners. It is strung with Aquila strings and has a very smooth satin finish. With solid spruce and Aquila strings, you'd expect this to be a very bright sounding uke, but interestingly the tone is a lot more full than you'd expect. It rings out really well, is very well balanced and has a vintage sounding tone. Although it flies in the face of what you'd anticipate with Aquila strings and spruce tonewood - it actually sounds a little like a Martin. Quite an interesting choice, giving the option for those who like spruce volume and looks, but are concerned about an over-bright sound.

There are a lot of things going for this Ohana SK-22Z, it really is the full deal at its price point. Solid wood, spectacular back and sides, nice set-up with a low action and a punchy, loud, vintage tone. Very impressive!
