Poi Pounder

$ 1,599.00

Inspired by the traditional Hawaiian pestle used to pound taro root into poi paste, the Poi Pounder Series is made from the finest Hawaiian Koa. The Koa features the fullest and widest curling of any model we offer, hand-selected by our passionate luthiers. The binding and inlay are made from African Padauk, while the rosette is a Padauk / Koa swirl. The striking Poi Pounder-shaped end graft highlights the beautiful, reserved padauk trim. The Poi Pounder Series is available in a tenor model with a high-gloss finish.

Made to Order

Each Poi Pounder ukulele is made to order by our luthiers here at the Kala Shop in Petaluma, CA. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for our master builders to create, test, and deliver your ukulele.

International Orders

Please bear with us—due to new International Export Regulations regarding all species of Rosewood there will be an undetermined postponement of orders containing Kala Elites, California U-Basses, and USA Banjo Ukulele shipping outside the United States. We hope to have this resolved as soon as possible.
