Kanile'a have consistently made some of the best sounding instruments to leave the shores of Hawaii, but with the new TRU-R bracing system, they are now sounding better than ever. This soprano rings with such impressive sustain and clarity, which is almost entirely down to the clever new bracing, which is super light and super stiff. It is still arranged in a "touch and release" pattern which touches only where the wood needs support, so more of the wood can ring for longer and there is less unnecessary wood to soak up the vibrations of the strings.

And the inlay on the top is so exquisitely done, adding that sprinkle of magic to an already amazing instrument!
