So I'm trying to decide between going with either a Ko'olau or Kanilea'a Tenor. I play a good mix of strumming and fingerpicking styles. Since I live in South Florida where there really are no Ukulele stores, I'm stuck with just listening to sound clips on YouTube to make my decision. Currently I play a Solid cedar top Kala set up as low G. From what I can hear and what I've been told the Ko'olau has a more even tone and the Kanile'a is a little heavier on the low and high ends. Compared to what I'm currently playing they both sound amazing although I'm leaning toward the Ko'olau. Just wondering what others who have played both think about these two Ukes.
