Looking for a Koaloha or Kanilea tenor ukulele, if it's a kanilea I'm looking for something better than a K1.

Post some pics of what you've got.

I don't know where you are located at but this Koaloha Tenor listing is on Craigslist in San Diego. I also still have a Kanilea K1-T.

I'm over in Florida but I might shoot that guy a message and see what's up anyways. I got a Kanilea soprano in and am kind of dissapointed in that it's pretty quiet. Don't get me wrong it sounds great, just not very loud. I'd like to get a Koaloha just to see what the difference between the brands is.

Does it have Aquilas?

I'm really not sure what the strings are, they aren't aquila's though. Looks like they could be Martins. Think new strings would do the trick?

Most definitely. Everybody has there own preference on strings, but I know for a fact that aquilas would sound good on your Kanilea because that is what I have on mine. They sound great. Besides, it couldn't hurt. A six dollar investment for a $600.00 instrument = a no brainer.

i think you should just give in and get the koaloha! they sound amazing.. and they are loud.. but still hold a great tone! i just got a little pick up for mine and the thing goes nutz!

Yeah I'm leaning towards the Koaloha really just to have some variety. I've got a Kanilea and a Kamaka, why not a Koaloha in the mix?
