Let’s talk about the Kamoa ukulele Fit and Finish

Kamoa E3-T - Tenor - Brown

The fit and finish of the Kamoa E3-T - Tenor Brown is exceptional to me. It comes with a smooth satin finish that looks very simple but yet attractive.

Another thing that caught my attention is how tidy the inside of this Kamoa ukulele is.

It is very neat on the inside and the bindings and joints are also intact. In general, this ukulele has a solid construction good ukuleles should have.

Kamoa did a very great job on the fit and finish of this model. The translucent finish, also adds to its beauty and I could also see some of the wood grains through the irresistible coloring.

Quality Aquila nylgut strings

The Kamoa E3-T - Tenor Brown comes with a good quality Aquila nylgut strings. These strings are very comfortable for picking or strumming even though new.

Also, the long string length gives it more advantage over smaller sized ukuleles with respect to sound. It has more sustain, projection as well as richness.

Generally Solid Wood Material

The Kamoa E3-T - Tenor Brown is made of solid wood material. It comes with a spruce top, and the back and sides are constructed with solid maple.

The neck is made with solid mahogany wood. The quality of the material contributes to its great sound and intonation.

It has more sustain and volume which can also be attributed to its arched back design and solid wood material.
