Description

Details

Kanile'a make some of the finest ukuleles on the sunny island of Oahu. Their instruments have incredible finishes, really second to none, and they possess incredible poise, both physically and sonically. They feel so light in the hand, thanks to very clever bracing and beautifully refined, high quality thin wood being used.

Everything on the bodies is designed to maximise vibrations - the new TRU-R bracing allows the top to ring for longer, the internal binding top the top and back is as minimal as possible without compromising structural integrity, and the wood is very carefully selected for the correct grain properties which allows the soundwaves to be created. And everything is put together by master craftsmen, who love what they do, and this shows.

All this attention to detail results in a huge but crystal clear and balanced sound, endless sustain and very pretty and complex harmonics in the sound. You really can do everything on a Kanile'a!

This model, the K-1 BE Export Spec, is essentially a K-1 Baritone made of solid Koa, but with Ebony fretboard and bridge instead of rosewood. Apart from being a more expensive and harder wood which helps the instrument vibrate more loudly and for longer, it avoids complications with the CITES restrictions on Rosewood. 

As of early 2019, all Kanile'a models come with Kanile'a TUR-R bracing. The TRU-R bracing pattern allows even less contact between the braces and top allowing for a truer vibration and a noticeable increase in sustain on all models. Finally, from 2019 - Kanile'a K-1 models will come with an updated Ebony headstock facebplate and white pearl inlays.
