Kanilea K-2- Premium Koa / Ebony Gloss Tenor Ukulele!
Instrument pictured is "the one" available here!

This Koa tenor is 100% Hawaiian Made here on the island of Oahu. It has incredible spalted curly koa from Maui and is appointed with ebony and Kanilua beach sand inlays.

Take a listen as Kalei gives a "raw" sound sample of this model.

Kanile'a is loved for many reasons. Often, guitar players choose them because of the rich tones. Those that "jam" with friends love the volume and mid frequencies that really "cut  through". The bedroom player looking for more serious instrument to inspire them. Finger pickers wanting deep bass notes with a low G string. And, many fall in love with Kanile'a even before playing it! The woods and finish are consistently gorgeous!

The Koa is on this particular premium is awesome! It's a premium koa model because it has astounding grain and figure, exactly how many prefer. On top of that it is one of the best sounding tenors we have ever had. If it says in stock, then don't hesitate to add this Hawaiian beauty to your collection.

Includes the canvas covered hard case and humidifier.

The worlds finest Koa Wood
Herco HE-360 Humidifier - Free

This ukulele comes with a canvas-covered case.

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 house. 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 hardcase for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed.

Really Happy
This unique, beautiful piece of craftsmanship is also extraordinary in its ability to produce the perfect sounds to make music with. Needless to say, I'm really happy with it. I'm also very pleased with the customer service at HMS. Aaron, Zach, and Joel did a great job in answering my questions as well as doing a super set-up on my ukulele which is more important than most realize. Add to all this a free high quality hard case as well as free shipping and I consider this a super deal. Yep, I'll be doing business with HMS again soon.
Review by Doc Ro / (Posted on 1/11/2014)
What can I say? I have an exceptionally beautiful piece of artwork that also produces some of the most beautiful sounds I've ever heard. The staff at
HMS were friendly, helpful, and took all my many questions in stride. There was never a sense of pushiness or the feeling of buy now or lose out for later. Many thanks to Arron, 'the Uke Brute', who was very knowledgable about all things ukulele. Also for his fantastic instructional and review videos that can be found on YouTube. Joel who did a top notch job on the setup of the ukulele which is much more important than most people realize. Zach who made the shipping process so much easier and fast (three days from Hawaii to the Netherlands). Corey's videos where he plays a sample of almost every ukulele they have in stock which helped me a lot in making my final decision. Sorry Corey, but you've earned a nickname too... 'Wild Man Fujimoto!' Seriously though, your playing is amazingly good and many pieces you play are quite beautiful and show great talent. Both you and Aaron are my new uke heros. Andrew and Jennifer, your business model of excellent customer service will have me coming back soon to buy another ukulele, a high end soprano long neck. One other thing... If you figure in the free shipping costs for a higher end ukulele, plus a free high quality case, low prices for their ukuleles in comparison to other ukulele stores, the expert setup, and the super fast time it took the Ukulele I ordered to arrive at my home... Well, buying from HMS is simply a no brainer. Again many thanks to Team HMS for the exceptional experience in getting my dream ukulele. Also, a big thanks to Kanile'a's team for their superb craftsmanship and commitment to making some of the best ukuleles in the world. Such skill is no small task.
Best Regards,
