These testimonials are from actual clients who where generous enough to share their experience and feelings about their new Kanile'a 'ukulele. We understand how difficult it is to express over the internet how extraordinary our 'ukuleles look and most importantly sound. These testimonial pages are to assist you in understanding the beauty and playability of our instruments.

The workmanship is extraordinary

Dan Griffith shares: “I received my custom Uke today! It exceeds my expectations in ever way!!! It looks fantastic! The workmanship is extraordinary. On my Peterson strobe the intonation at the 12 fret looks to be perfect (not easy to do on a uke, this is a big deal as i play up the neck!!!). The Gilbert tuners are the best I have seen, better than even Wavery! The pickup sounds even across all the strings. Then there is the tone, WOW, Richer and fuller than my Kanile’s concert with had been the best sounding uke I had ever played.

“Oh, I notice the saddle is angled slightly back, nice. I had never seen this before except on my Santa Cruz 00-SKYE Guitar which I absolutely love. It is also Cocobolo, Adirondack spruce, with slotted headstock.

“In my opinion, no one makes a Uke as nice as Kanile’a. You have revolutionized the industry.”
