Kohala ukuleles are the budget range of ukes from Lanikai. They're very cheap ukuleles (you can usually pick them up for less than $30). For that price, you can't expect too much. I've read some people saying that their Kohala ukuleles have problems. Them most regular complaint is that the intonation is off.
