Extra Options

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360 included humidifier for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your home. For more info refer to the Ukulele Care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed.

A high-quality ukulele with a rich and beautiful sound
I purchased my K1-C gloss about a month ago and have been playing it daily ever since. This is a professional grade ukulele in every aspect. The sound is warm, almost harp-like, with really great resonance and sustain. I know most players today are leaning toward the tenor size, but you can save a couple of dollars by considering a Kanile'a concert instead. The scale is actually a half inch longer than standard concerts at 15.5 inches, which gives you enough room to comfortably play most chords up to about the 9th fret. Kanile'a concerts are every bit as loud as their tenors; I have strummed both side-by-side, and there is no difference in volume, only tone--the tenor has slightly crisper highs and deeper lows. To me, though, the concert sounds more traditional, with better mid-range. One last note, do not hesitate to purchase this or any ukulele from Hawaii Music Supply; Andrew and his entire staff really know their stuff and are ready to answer any questions you may have, and their setups are done right. I couldn't be happier!

A really great sounding and playing ukulele
I received my gloss K-1 C about 3 weeks ago and have been playing it everyday since then. I have to say that this is by far one of the best ukuleles that I have ever played. The sound is very warm, almost harp -like, with near perfect intonation up the neck. The set-up from Hawaii Music Supply was perfect as well; I can strum and pick notes with a heavy attack without any string buzz. I am relatively new to the ukulele, but have been playing guitar for over 30 years. I have owned a number of higher end guitars and basses through the years , so I know how a quality, professional-grade instrument fells like in your hands, and this Kanile'a concert has the same feel and build-quality as any $2000 and up Martin, Taylor, and Gibson acoustic guitar. If you are an intermediate player, you owe it to yourself to at least consider one of the "K" brand, Hawaiian built ukuleles for your next purchase. And I cannot say enough good things about Andrew and the entire crew at HMS. These guys know ukuleles and will do their best to ensure your satisfaction. I will definitely be buying from them again, when I am ready for my next purchase.

Very elegant uke!
This is my 2nd "K" uke, I order this K-1C from HMS and once I received it, I am surprise by it's build quality and design. I think Kanilea produces the most elegant ukulele among 4 K brand. It's tone is not as bright as Koaloha concert. But It gives very sweet and warm tone, I like it very much and keep playing it since I bought it!

Kanile'a for Superb Quality
I have had my Kanile'a concert for a couple of years now. It is a wonderful instrument. So easy to play and with a sound that I think is unique to concert ukes. Kanile'a ukes seem to me to have a very rich, deeper sound that other ukes. They are "classy". The higher notes aren't lost though, it is a rich sound across all strings. The construction is superb. Everything feels right and balanced. It is a joy to play, the action is nice and low and fingering is so easy. The finish is spectacular and the woods they use are breathtaking. The HMS guys will send you the best they have at any one time, trust them!
Everyone I know who owns a Kanile'a loves it. These are top quality instruments. You are paying for construction and skill in making an instrument that can easily last a lifetime.
If you are at intermediate or advanced stage in your uke playing, you owe it to yourself to get an instrument that will respond to your touch exactly. The Kanile'a concert will do that!

Kanile'a Koa concert mellow sound
Our Kanile'a Koa concert is a beautifully made instrument My wife & I share it.
The sound is so mellow. I call it buttery. It is so loud! My wife loves it but I prefer a cleaner brighter fuller sound of my Pono

It is the most exquisitely built uke we own. The workmanship is wonderful.
Did I say it was LOUD!

Everything I was looking for
After months of research and agonising over which way to go I contacted MGM about the K1 C Gloss ukulele. Mike was fantastic, emailing me photos from his phone on the shop floor and staying patient as I asked him endless questions. I'm in Australia and Kanilea's are thin on the ground here - I'd never even seen one - so buying online was a big step. I tracked the parcel from Hawaii to Australia, my excitement growing by the day. And I still get a thrill every time I open the case and hold it. The finish and workmanship are a knockout. The tone is just what I was looking for and although the fretted C string is a bit dull, I think it is opening up over time. I put on some Living Water strings and I just love it. Thanks Kanilea and MGM for this instrument which is just a joy.

Proud owner with a story to tell.
I want to share with you of my really awesome tale of how lucky I am to live in Hawaii. I have a love for ukuleles and the way it makes me free my spirit into playing basis chords and never sounding the same from just the way I strum the strings.Every practice I do to so furfilling that I am finding new ways to learn. There's the Ukulelesite.com that keeps all my questions answered thru the expriences of masters of the trade. I found my Kanilea K-1C Koa Concert Ukulele just this month from CL.Oahu Classified and the sell price was unbelievable. I called the seller who turns out to be a Life Saver/Life Guard/ Jet Skier/Surfer who Lives in Palolo and Works saving life on the North Shore Waimea,Sunset area. Well I did not know this at first and the call was to buy his Kanilea Ukulele. It was a very beautiful made and sounded angelic to the ears. I told him honestly that he is selling to low and to check out other websites to see what a ukulele of this caliber goes for. He did a search on Ukulelesite.com that night. What the Awesome thing is that he called me the next day, came over to Wahiawa on his way to work and sold me this Kanilea K-1C. This is why I enrich my music love for the way people cross my life's path and leave an impression. I find TheUkuleleSite.com is a hidden jewel in Haleiwa that all need to visit. Aloha,Mike A. from Whitmore Village.

kanilea k1
It´s my first and only hawaiian uke and I have to tell that´s it´s worth any penny you´re investing on it. It looks just gorgeous and the sound is brilliant. The intonation is perfect too.
It´s the only concert I have cause I never got used with it. But I have to admit since I got this one my tenor size ukes are not being used. The playability it is just incomparable with any other uke i have.

Ka'u Punahele (My Favorite)
Aloha! I bought one of these Kanile'a Koa Concert 'ukulele, and it is by far my favorite! The body is slightly larger than amother concert I have that is another famous brand, and I think the Kanile'a has better resonance than the other brand. It is extremely well-made. The Kanile'a sounds beautiful and looks beautiful!

Beautiful
I have one of these guys. I think there is no much to comment on Kanile'a: you will spend some money but you'll get a really nice instrument. I have my super concert, since two years, and I really love it, I wouldn't trade it for anything. Full sound, bright, mellow, excellent tone, great tuners, really you do not have to tune it all the time. It's a little expensive, but it is worthy to have a quality instrument. The looks are always gorgeus, each time I let it out of the case I'm stunned.
