Koa Series used Acacia Taiwan as a top, back and side wood.
Acacia Taiwan - It is a hard dense wood with a beautiful unique wood grain. Acacia Taiwan brings with it a clear crisp high and a lavish full mid-range sound similar to that of mahogany. It is also a wood that sounds progressively distinguished as it ages and delivers a deeper resonating tone. The look and sound of Koa make people adore this exquisite wood.
At aNueNue when we use Acacia Taiwan for our ukulele (Top/Back/Sides), we place the exotic looking koa veneers at each side and for the center we use Poplar wood to ensure that the whole construction is light weight, stable and climate adaptable.
Our philosophy is, "Less is More." We focus on: Design, Simplicity and Elegance.
