    The Unkwown by Kalei Gamiao on Koaloha Super Concert

    Did this song recently on my Islander tenor. Wanted to compare it to a Koaloha Super Concert (Concert Body with Tenor neck). I love tenors, but musicguymic give me an amazing deal so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Love the intonation and VOLUME, but I a missing the bell bassy tones of a tenor...

    Me and Shirley T cover and a Hawaiian Sunset on Kanile'a Islander MT-4

    Would you believe I played this perfect all day, then at the moment of truth, with only one take possible, during the sunset, I dropped the camera, rushed and made choke mistakes.

    Kanile'a Tenor Comparison

    Here I am playing three Kanile'a ukuleles. The first is the Islander Solid Mohagany Tenor satin (MST-4), the second is a Kanile'a solid Koa gloss version (K1), and lastly my new Kanile'a Tattoo Tenor satin finish (Tat t). I wanted to see what differences I could hear when I played the same song.
