    The Invisible Man

    Hey George, why not be honest and ask him why he doesn’t talk to you. Maybe there is a block that could be removed with honesy and a little heartfelt compassion. He is a good guy and you are a good guy and you just have to find the right key to open him up. It’s worth a try for the happiness of...

    Kanile'a Tru Bracing vs. Tru R Bracing ?

    Honestly I can’t say anything good about either bracing system. Have owned two Kanilea tenors and the only thing I can say is they don’t project the sound out of the body of the uke. I think it is because the braces do not lay completely on the top. They only touch in a few places. Which means...

    Why does a soprano have less frets?

    I love my Anuenue Soprano Koa Bird. I play Classical music on it and need the extra frets above the 12th fret. every note has a beautiful bell like quality.

    Kanile'a New Models Unveiling Saturday, January 14, 2023

    I have never been happy with the Kanilea sound. strange braces. I think I will stick with a uke what has more traditional braces. Kanilea ukes are to pricey for what you get. I like my Kamaka,KoAloha,and Anuenue ukuleles so much better.

    Dead Spots

    You might try tuning a half step down and see if that changes the dead spots. My ukes seem to sound better to me at G# instead of A. Going a whole step down from standard tuning also sounds better on some ukes.

    Tenor Ukuleles - When, How & Why?

    as a musician and uke player I believe it may be best to have at least one uke of each size. A soprano,concert,tenor and baritone. depending on the music or the piece you are playing one uke may be better for the job. A lot of the classical and renaissance and lute music have stretches that can...

    Strings Kanilea String Discussion - Best Sound

    I have a Kanilea Diamond Tenor and have been through all the different string brands. I can’t find any strings that sound good on it. I have left the Worth CT set on the uke. No string set seems to bring out the sound. The uke seems to hold most of the sound inside and doesn’t project it out of...

    At what age did you get your first uke?

    i Got my first uke at age 5. It was a plastic uke with the Arthur Godfrey chord attachment. that didn’t last long because I took it off of the uke and threw it in the toy box. Then learned on my own. loved that uke and used to sit on the steps of my apartment building and serenade everyone...

    What happened to all of the wood hard cases?

    I only use a Gig Bag for temporary transport to a Gig. To me that is what they are designed for. At home it goes in a good hard shell is questionable why a uke maker would sell an expensive uke with a gig bag instead of a case.

    Kanile’a 2022 Platinum

    In The 1970s while working at a music store I heard about a Spanish guitar shop that went through a bad time. I won’t say which one. The son took over after his father died and he cared more for hand made Italian leather shoes, custom suits and expensive cars. The guitars at time became...
