Phwooooaaaaarrrrr! This one is truly gorgeous. The koa is beautiful with beautiful figuring. It sounds absolutely superb as well – very crystal clear with really amazing note definition. It’s the sound of Hawaii.

We’re incredibly proud to stock Kanile’a ukuleles – handmade on the island of Oahu, Hawaii using all solid koa. The clever bracing system makes them incredibly light and gives them great projection. They are immaculately made. You can really see and feel the quality and the 1.5 inch nut together with beautifully finished fretwork make them a joy to play. These models feature an ebony fretboard and bridge and even include sand from an Hawaiian beach which they cleverly use as fret markers.

AMAZING!!!!!

Includes a free pod case.

    I traveled over two hours to view then purchase this ukulele! I had done my research and listened to many reviews and in many ways knew what to expect. Initially, it proved to be wonderful to play, great fretboard and spot on intonation, but if I’m honest a little disappointing in terms of punch. I’m not a fan of Aquila strings, so I persevered knowing that a string change would hopefully give me the sound I am looking for? Matt was very patient and helpful, allowing me plenty of time to swap between my own ukes and others to fully appreciate the Kanile’a. In the end, the overall quality and playability sold it to me! Matt immediately changed the strings to Fremont black fluorocarbons and a wound low G ….boy, what a transformation, a massive jump in volume and unbelievable clarity and note separation….it’s sensational!! If this ukulele does get better when it “ opens up” as everyone says Kanile’a ‘s do, it’s going to be impossible to put down. Thank goodness my wife also owns one!
    Definitely recommended for anyone wanting a true professional instrument.
    Special thanks to a Matt, he made us extremely welcome and gave me all the advice I needed. The shop is a joy to visit and in such a wonderful setting, I’m sure my wife and myself will be calling again in the future.
