Details

Kanile'a perfected the Super Tenor... 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; 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 with a larger body and wider lower bout width. They usually retain the 17'' Tenor neck but the body more resembles a Baritone and 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 Islanders 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.
