Israel Kamakawiwo'le Ukulele?

Hey for the song over the rainbow by IZ, would i have to use a Martin Ukuleles or could i use a Lanikai LU-11 Soprano? If i could, would it make a difference?

    It's not the brand difference so much as the difference in voicings between a soprano and a tenor uke. Still, with a little luck you might be able to pull it off. To some extent the brand of uke will be a factor since the Lanikai is a budget brand while Martin (as well as Kamaka and Koaloha) are professional brands. There is some difference in toal quality.
