It makes me happy.
I have a Kanilea KT-1 Tenor Premium that I had for a year and the sounds and Tone makes me Happy. I have a wide selection of Ukuleles I collect and every day I play them all. Some more than others and This Kanilea is always on my ukulele stand easy to reach. Just picking simple melodies softly then heavy strumming to songs makes me happy I have a Top of the Line Ukulele. If you like to play Music....Then get the best you can afford because it will make you happy.It will be worth years of enjoyment Believe me...

I searched and researched for the longest time. When this became available I jumped on it and have just been thrilled. I've tried a variety of string sets and there are some immense differences just as you'd expect. I really like the Worth Browns but generally play by myself and softly. This instrument sound wonderful whether strumming or picking and sure is a looker! This has brought me great delight and I look forward to years more. The Hawaii Music Supply folks couldn't have been more helpful and their assistance has been most appreciated.
Having several music stores in town with a fair selection of ukuleles I found that the breath of the selection/service/knowledge at Hawaii Music Supply and it's fabulous comparisons made me want to purchase there
Great Uke at a competitive price!

Beautiful Instrument!
I have the deluxe version of this ukulele, which I believe has slightly higher grade Koa wood! (I didn't actually get it from Hawaiian Music Supply - if I had, it would have been set up better!) This is a beautifully crafted instrument, gorgeous woods throughout and a keeper if you are of the 'needs to be highly decorated' fraternity! Its visual delight is in the sheer quality of the materials and their construction!
Mine had a really high action when it arrived and needed a new saddle because of the way in which they are designed to fit into Kanilea bridges - but a telephone call ensured a replacement was dispatched from Hawaii straight away, free of charge! As I said, I didn't get it from this store - if I had, I think it would have been properly set up before it was sent out.
But they are superb instruments, great clear sound for finger picking and a lovely warm tone for strumming along to songs! Light to hold but strongly built and mine has the gloss finish which is extremely resilient to brushes from fingernails even during the most exuberant sessions! Mine is a year old, is played every day and doesn't have a mark anywhere in the lacquer!
Buy one - you will love it and the sound gets better as you play it!

Simply a great instrument
It's hard to be critical of great-sounding instrument that also happens to be gorgeous...

I bought this model after trying it out at a couple different stores, as well as the same model without the gloss finish. It's got a nice warm sound, which then got even more playful and punchier when I changed to a set of d'addarrio strings. The profile is a tiny bit wider and shallower than my other uke, which is still taking a little getting used to. The action is also high enough that it's easy for me to buzz on barred chords if I'm not fretting them tightly enough.

I wanted a pickup too, and got the one installed by Kanilea itself (as recommended). It's nice and loud, picking up everything -- though does not include volume/tone controls, since they didn't cut into the wood on the side of the uke to install it... just only little hole at the bottom.

A Fantastic Instrument
After playing for a few years and playing many ukuleles, I decided to purchase my dream ukulele. I tried many including Kamaka, and Koaloha. This Kanile'a was the best sounding and looking of the Hawaiian made koa ukes I tried.
The gloss finish is amazing and really brings out the look of the koa.
Playability is excellent with spot on intonation and a fabulous feeling fretboard.
However, it was the sound that sold me. This uke sounds as good as any ukulele I have ever heard.
