KBSP Series – Koa Bevel Slotted Premium


Introduced in January 2015, the KBSP (Koa Bevel Slotted Premium) showcases the scoop bevel. Originally seen only on guitars, master luthier Joe Souza was the first to design the scoop bevel for the `ukulele. This design feature allows the player easier access to the higher frets without sacrificing the body volume of the instrument. In fact, Kanile`a builds a deeper body for its beveled instruments to make up for that lost volume. The result? Rich tones and resonance of a full-bodied instrument with the fingering playability of a cutaway. Add to this Premium Curly Koa, the Kanile`a Crown Slotted headstock for additional string tension and the smooth UV Cured Natural finish and you've got an `ukulele player's dream. Comes in a Canvas Semi-hard shell case. (Pictured: KBSP Tenor)

Each instrument we build, with the exception of an eight string, may be equipped with a “G” fourth course (196Hz) fixed with a 0.029″ Phosphor Bronze wire-wrapped nylon-core string for no extra charge. The woven “low G-string” is tuned an octave lower, which gives a richer sound and opens a wider picking range.

Note:  These are photos of a previously built `ukulele. Please keep in mind that this is a sample. In the world of wood products the finished instrument may vary from one piece to another and you will not find two pieces the same. These photos give you an idea of what the accessories look like as well as the shape and size. The woods will always vary in grain, curl and color.
