Kanile'a K1 8-String Tenor ~ Hawaiian Koa ~ Gloss Finish

Pics show available instrument.  A Hawaiian 8-string tenor. Beautiful sounds unlike any other instrument!

One of the great things about this tenor is the strumming feel. You will find it easier than ever to make percussive rhythms and to get a smooth sound out of your strumming. A 8-string of this caliber is a treat to play!

Check out a dry sound sample from Corey Fujimoto.

The 8-string is different from a normal tenor in that it has a Low-g and High-g, Low-c and high-c with the E and A strings doubled.. The gives a wonderful full tone and a smooth feel to strumming the ukulele. It is still tuned G-C-E-A and is still played just like a regular ukulele, but the extra strings add another dimension of liveliness that will bring joy to your ears.

This is a tenor sized instrument and comes with a tenor hardshell case.

Not many people know just how fun a professionally made a 8-string tenor ukulele can be. Experience it for yourself with this lifelong musical companion!

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.

Extra Options

* One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco included humidifier (HE-360) for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (e.g., parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or an area with winter seasons, especially if you are heating 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 hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

* Put a note in the Special Instructions if you would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything (e.g., “Please setup low G”). 

* Under the Accessories tab you can also customize this instrument by adding strap button(s) or your choice of pickup for plugging in. We recommend either the MiSi or the LR Baggs pickup for this ukulele. 

* After adding this instrument to your cart, you can shop further to create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

* Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your order reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free FedEx 2-day shipping. Two days is the time in transit.
