Details

Kanile'a have perfected the super tenor ukulele... Whether it's Hawaiian legend Willie Kay with his famous super tenor 5 string (technically a super, super tenor) or one of the more modern diamond ukuleles that we adore here at SUS; we know one thing is for sure. A super tenor is the perfect option for those that want the biggest possible sound from a GCEA instrument as possible.

What is a super tenor? I'm glad you asked because nearly everyone I meet who tries one has the same question. Kanile'a super tenor's are a tenor ukulele with a larger body and wider lower bout width. They usually retain the 17'' tenor neck but the body more resembles a baritone ukulele.

The overall tone has it's own personality that is thinner and less boomy than a baritone but a bit darker than the average tenor. The A-ST-4 is Kanile'a Islander's first foray into producing an affordable super tenor and it's just great. Whether you are a beginner wanting a larger body uke to sing along with or a seasoned player looking for a new sound without breaking the bank, this is the perfect solution.

Pictures show a good average example. This model is very consistent looking, but if you would like to see photos of actual stock, please drop us a line.

Millar
Millar is our newest Ukulele brand here at SUS. Acacia, Cypress, Spruce and Mahogany ukes made in Taiwan - in our opinion they give the established names like Pono, KoAloha Opio, Eastman & Big Island a real run for their money...
Anaole
Ana'Ole Ukuleles are a bit of an open secret - Hawaiian made, affordable solid wood Ukuleles available in Mango or Koa flavours...
