The pictured K-1 T is the one available here!

This is one of our best sellers in our store because of the wonderful sound and the beautiful look. The Kanile'a K-1 T has become one of the top choices for a Hawaiian koa tenor and for good reason. Mainly the full rich tone, but also the beauty and professional craftsmanship this tenor has.

For many of our customers this model has been just what they wanted. Same model "raw" sound sample.

Kanile'a have a slight;y wider nut width. Many ukes are 1 3/8" at the nut but Kanile'a is 1.5". This little bit of extra room is just right for many customer. It's a subtle difference but can allow you to play cleaner and make chords that might be harder on a more slim fingerboard width. 

This tenor has the very protective Kanile'a UV gloss finish, the ultimate glassy look and top notch protection for the wood. 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 K1-T from the Kanile'a Ukulele Company is all those things and would make an excellent choice for your next ukulele. 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

We can install the MiSi with its rechargeable preamp,  or the new L.R. Baggs 5.0 ukulele pickup.

Extra Options

The Humistat Model 1 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/winter area, especially if you heat the air most of the day and night. 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.

Absolutely perfect ukulele
This ukulele is absolutely hands down one of the best ukuleles I've ever played. It is an absolute pleasure to play. The sound resonates so well. The wood gorgeous. The craftsmanship is flawless. I own Pono's and a Kala limited edition, they are fine ukes, but I don't think they will get much play anymore. Yes, the price is steep. Play it soft and it sounds sweet, loud and the instrument sings. Its beauty is very subtle. The little details like the abalone fret markers on the side just make it feel very special. The setup by HMS was wonderful. The action feels so great. Once you play a ukulele professionally set up, you will never play another off the shelf again. Can't recommend this enough.
