Came across the following corporate statement on an online retailers website .

Wow... that's 120,000 ukuleles per year and 72,000 guitars... from one company! I wonder if they are all sold under the Enya name.
 
I remember when their English-language brand name was Kaka
Yes, they really should have done a bit more research there 😆
 
Some of their solid wood versions of their instruments are very nice but pretty expensive.

By far their largest market is China.
 
Do you know (or anyone) what the deal is with ukulele and the letter K? I feel like there are a high number of brands that begin with K, and I’m not sure if you see the same thing with a different letter in other instruments.
Not sure if this is an accurate observation or not. Hawaii has popularized the instrument and, of course, there are the 3 (or 4) Ks. But Kamaka is from the family name and KoAloha is a combination of koa and aloha. Not sure how Kanile'a derived their company name, but there are only twelve letters (7 consonants) in the Hawaiian language so maybe chance plays a role here. Ko'olau may be from the Ko'olau mountains on Oahu. But there are a ton of Hawaiian ukulele companies that do not start with a K. Of course, you have Kala but so many others again do not start with "K".

I didn’t know that about koaloha, interesting!

Kanile'a which is located in Kaneohe means Joyful Sound .
 
Not sure I understand your reply / question , but I'm guessing it's Enya . :)
" ... is the number one solid ukulele brand in the world."

Obviously a typo .

Anyway , I posted about Enya not to SPAM , but am curious what the forum thinks about their " solid-wood" line .
By the way , Twisted Wood who sell the All Acacia , KOA Ukulele , says they are not associated with Enya in anyway .

Example of U.S. Custom records from a site that sells this type of info :
