Islander by Kanile'a - Mahogany Tenor Ukulele!
The MT-4 has such a big warm tone while still retaining the bright qualities that are uniquely ukulele. This one also comes with a cool Honu design etched into the soundboard.
This one really get towards that Kanile'a tone but with its own voice. We're impressed with the volume and body of sound this model gives at such an affordable price and it's been the perfect fit for many of our customers.
The Islander has a 1.5" nut width allowing a little more space when compared to the 1 3/8" most companies do. That aspect makes it popular for those with larger hands or just players that want more space for chording.
Corey gives a raw sound sample.
If you are looking for an affordable, high-quality sound in a tenor ukulele, this Islander MT-4 may be just right!
"The Islander Mahogany Series Ukulele offers a very bright yet balanced traditional Hawaiian tone that is so synonymous to this wonderful instrument. Our time-honored approach allows these instruments have a very clean, authentic ukulele look to them."
What is our "setup"? We don't make these ukuleles. We make them better! This includes saddle and nut heights, fretwork (planing/ recrowning/ polishing), intonation checks, and a thorough inspection for major cosmetic flaws. You can usually find some kind of sign of human construction with these, so if you're super picky about that, this might not be your perfect uke. But we first weed out any obvious cosmetic or structural issues, then the setup work we include for free dials in the feel and tone and that's where this value will be hard to beat. The current special is about as good as it gets.
