Details

The Kanile'a Islander AT-4s are made in China and are perfect intermediate level instruments. They are made to the same exacting standards as the expensive Hawaiian koa models, these Islanders have a unique charm all of their own.

The acacia wood gives a very good frequency response, lovely full bass combined with a very balanced treble. Certainly a cut above other tenor ukuleles at the same price!

One of the most attractive things about this model is the slightly wider than normal fretboard. At 1.5 inches or 38mm at the nut, getting your fingers into the right shapes an absolute doddle. Combine that width with a very slinky neck profile and you have a very easy to play instrument.

Pictures show an average example, not the actual instrument.
