The pictured K-1 T5 Natural is "the one!"

This Hawaiian made 5 string tenor will knock your socks off with a big warm sound and a golden figured body. It is the same as the standard K-1 Tenor model but with a low and high G string so you get best of both worlds. 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 uses some of the best koa you will see, and they show it off with a perfect Natural satin UV cured finish.

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. This K1-T 5 string from the Kanile'a Ukulele Company is all those things and would make an excellent choice for your next ukulele. Kanile'a hardcase, humidifier & shipping included! Video shows same model.

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!

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 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/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.

5 string magic
My first Kanile'a..and it's so unique..the sound of the low and high G is so melodic.So well constructed it's made my other Tenors redundant.. highly recommend HMS in every way.. my 5th purchase from them.
