Kanile'a K-1 B Baritone Deluxe Hawaiian Koa Ukulele Gloss (25th Anniversary) #27655
Kanile'a make some of the finest ukuleles on the sunny island of Oahu and we have nothing but praise for the K-1 B baritone model. Their instruments have incredible finishes, really second to none, and they possess incredible poise, both physically and sonically. They feel so light in the hand, thanks to very clever bracing and beautifully refined, high quality thin wood being used.
Everything on the bodies is designed to maximise vibrations - the new TRU-R bracing allows the top to ring for longer, the internal binding top the top and back is as minimal as possible without compromising structural integrity, and the wood is very carefully selected for the correct grain properties which allows the soundwaves to be created. And everything is put together by master craftsmen, who love what they do, and this shows.
Kahiau and Joe Souza (Father and Son Luthier pair) have continued to bench test and push the limits, weight distribution of the instruments and thinning out of Tru-R bracing into 2023 making a new Kanile'a noticeably lighter in the hands and with the Baritones we have found a cleaner more piano like bass response on an already world class instrument.
All this attention to detail results in a huge but crystal clear and balanced sound, endless sustain and very pretty and complex harmonics in the sound. You really can do everything on a Kanile'a!
