This Hawaiian made tenor will knock your socks off with a big warm sound and a golden figured body. The Kanile'a K-1 has become one of the top choices for a Hawaiian koa tenor, and for good reason. It has a wide tonal range with a lot of body. It sounds full without losing clarity. Great sustain and resonance! Plus, Kanile'a has gorgeous koa as you can see on this upgraded deluxe koa model, and they show it off with a perfect UV gloss finish.

This is a new version of the K-1 TD though, the K-1 TDE. The E stands for ebony as it has ebony wood for the bridge instead of rosewood like the normal 1 series from Kanile'a. This also makes the new E models avaiable for international shipping given the new restrictions on rosewood. It also has Kailua beach sand for the logo and fretboard maker inlays.

For many of our customers this model has been just what they wanted. A pro level tenor uke that with lively sounds and gorgeous looks! A lifetime instrument from Hawaii. The brand new K1-TE from the Kanile'a Ukulele Company is all those things and would make an excellent choice for your next ukulele. Corey gives us a raw sound sample of the same model from a few weeks ago.

This uke is a lot of fun and incredibly gorgeous. Don't hesitate to add it to your collection. We guarantee you will love it!

Canvas case, humidifier & shipping included!

Setup Options

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

Custom Options

Want a pickup? We can install the Mi-Si with \rechargeable preamp or the new L.R. Baggs 5.0!

Extra Options

The Herco HE360 is the included humidifier. You can upgrade to the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+). This is a must if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or are in a cold area, especially if you heat the air in your home. For more info see our Ukulele Care link at the bottom of the site.

If you want a different set of strings you can buy them at the strings section and just note that you want us to change them in the Special Instructions.

No extra charge for Low G just write, "Low G" under Special Instructions.
