Absolutely gorgeous ukulele from Kanile’a featuring their amazing tru-r bracing for a lovely open tone. This tenor features a deluxe koa set and it really is attractive. In fact, I’d say everything about this model is classy and well executed. Kanile’a have moved to their new slim slotted headstock on these which keep the neck beautifully light. Even the stealth tuners are light as a feather and smooth to use.
I also love that Kanile’a have moved to a satin neck, which is so comfortable to play up and down, the wide but and nice low action making playing a joy too. To add to that comfort we have a really nice bevelled armrest.
The tone has that classic koa feel but I’ve noticed all the recent tenors we’ve had from Kanile’a also have more warmth to them than before. It makes the tone really delightful.
It comes with a stunning premium Kanile’a case. We have to pay extra for these but it’s worth every penny.
