Special Price £1,799.00 £1,499.17 Regular Price £2,199.00

What an instrument the K-3 Kanile'a tenor ukulele is! It's bold and strident when you want it to be, sweet and melodic when you want it to be, and every step between. Forget the stunning looks for now, the sound is what it is all about.

Joe Souza's dedication to getting the very best sound out of koa is nothing short of legendary. The redesigned TRU-R touch and release bracing system helps every vibration from the strings to move the top for longer, giving each note huge room to sustain. It also means that you can get great amounts of "light and shade" in your playing.

You notice that when fingerpicking just a slight tickle of a string gives you an immediate and satisfying response. Equally, when you strum fiercely each note is perfectly weighted in attack, prominence and sustain, making the chord very clear and unmuddy, even when strung with a low G, or played with vigour up the neck. You have to love Kanile'a and their 38mm nut width too; perfect for us sausage fingered players out there.

This particular cut of Select Koa has drama aplenty with some lovely flaming, and nice contrasting light and dark grains. Stunning up close in the flesh.

It sounds great, it looks great, it plays great. I bet all other tenor ukuleles are jealous!

Please note; Kanile'a have discontinued K-2 and K-3 Ukuleles in 2024 so this could be the last K-3 Ukulele we ever receive.
