More on YouTube for Kamoa than the last time I looked.


Some stuff on Lanikai. Listen to some demos on Hawaiian Music Supply also:

I have not done a full review on it, but I am perfectly satisfied with my Lanikai ST, that I really have no desire to buy another tenor. I have played everything from Makalas to Koalohas and LoPrinzis. I admire the more expensive ukes' beauty and sound, but not enough to spend the extra bucks on them. Except for a few cosmetics, the Lanikai is the same uke as a Kala ST. The solid spruce tops give them a big but sweet voice, and they are inexpensive for what you get. No issues with the setup, intonation or quality control on any I have tried.

I also had a Kala all laminate tenor before I got the Lanikai ST, and I was never completely satisfied with the sound, just because I prefer the sound of a solid wood top.

Lanikai - well an 8-string - reviewed on my Web site...
