Aloha Twin

About the Aloha Twin

The Aloha Twin is an internal double-sensor pickup specially designed for the ukulele. It is based on the same technology as our award-winning Pure Pickup.

Installation Notes

The Aloha Twin can be installed two ways:

  1. With the supplied double-sided adhesive tape in front of the bridge plate (or bridge, if no bridge plate is present) on the inside sound board.
  2. With superglue on a flat bridge plate (or directly under the bridge, if no bridge plate is present). Please note that the bridge plate must be completely flat – it will not work if the bridge plate is radiused, which means it is curved up, e.g. Mele Ukuleles.

Either way, this pickup system has a strong output signal and works nicely even without a preamp. Please keep in mind when playing without a preamp, the result depends somewhat on the quality and type of the amplification equipment. For more tone control, the external Pure Preamp would be a great choice with its clean musical EQ and small size.

Sound Samples

We recorded this piece with a Pono mahogany tenor ukulele, using an Aloha Twin that was superglued under the bridge plate. It highlights the clarity the Aloha Twin can achieve for fingerpicked tunes. It's played through the Pure Preamp with no further signal processing.


This sound sample demonstrates the Aloha Twin's performance when strumming. The same instrument and recording technique was used as above.
