The Kanile'a soprano ukulele is a feast for the eyes and the ears. Kanile'a have improved their short scale instruments immensely with the new TRU-R bracing system. It's lighter and stiffer than before and allows for a fuller and louder sound which sustains for longer.
This one is in excellent condition - 9/10, a real gem of a Soprano ukulele.
Being a super soprano with a concert scale length, this uke has a slightly deeper tone than a standard soprano, but still has the percussive bark when required. The clarity and detail in the sound, when either picked or strummed, is a real treat.
As with all Kanile'a ukes, the build quality is absolutely top class, and the UV cured gloss finish helps the features in the beautiful curly Koa really pop. This finish is not just cosmetic as it helps to harden and stiffen the wood, bringing more crispness and brilliance to the sound.
In the past, Kanile'a have supplied a pod-case with these ukuleles and nowadays send a deluxe gigbag - this Ukulele was from that rare time in the middle when they manufactured their own ABS hard shell case.
