Thanks Andrew – this is cool!
My two questions are:
Does the amount of gloss/finish on a uke affect the tone?
How does the shape or position of the sound hole affect the sound? Is a sound hole with an image a bad idea?October 8, 2018 at 7:19 pm #18969strizaldoParticipant
What is it about this ukulele that makes it cost $1800?October 8, 2018 at 7:22 pm #18970lisadmhParticipant
What’sthe difference in build between your K1 Premium Soprano and your Islander line, say MSS Islander Solid Mahogany? I love my Islander and I’m sure I’d love a Kanile’a!October 8, 2018 at 7:36 pm #18971carmen-sParticipant
My question is, Does every Ukulele that comes out of Kanile’a has a specific or special set up process?October 8, 2018 at 7:39 pm #18972rickeymikeParticipant
My $50 Mitchell soprano sounds good to me. But this is my first musical instrument ever. How do I know when I am ready to upgrade?
Should my next step be a tenor, concert or stick with a soprano?October 8, 2018 at 7:40 pm #18973edwardParticipant
What is the best kind of bridge pin ? Bone,Plastic,Metal,Ebony. Same question for saddles and nut? Bone,Tusq, Nubone. Thank’sOctober 8, 2018 at 7:46 pm #18974kanae926Participant
Mine is a two part question:
A) How does Kanile’a achieve its volume and long sustain that sets it apart from other ukulele makers?
B) Is it derived from the unique bracing system and if so, how does it make a difference in the sound?
Thanks for the extra chance at such an amazing uke!October 8, 2018 at 8:04 pm #18975crazihippichicMember
Question #1. Is it best to stick to a particular size of ukulele? For example, I found that when I had multiple sizes, I had trouble switching between them. So I now stick with Concert size. I am wondering if that is normal?
Question #2. What is your funniest story, having to do with building ukuleles?

will the wide nut width be easier for finger picking? and is it suitable for small hand?
Why ebony is an upgrade in your website? will it affect the sound quality?

Thanks for the opportunity to participate! My two questions are:
1. Is there a specific reason or advantage why Kanile’a incorporates bridge pin styled bridges in their designs?
2. There has been some talk about restrictions of using popular tonewoods that are becoming depleted, such as rosewood and koa. Are any of these restrictions affecting Kanile’a currently, and what is the plan for the future if these woods become prohibited for use?October 9, 2018 at 2:09 am #18986hafeez3115Member
Hi! I have two questions.
Firstly, what inspired you to start up the brand Kanile’a?
Next, what is your favorite ukulele brand aside from Kanile’a?October 9, 2018 at 3:01 am #18987kayleighbParticipant
This question is two fold.
1. What is it about your TRU bracing system that makes such a difference to the intonation & sustain of the instrument?
2. As a novice what should I be looking for in terms of bracing – how would I spot “bad” bracing?
