Sale price$2,495.00 USD



Kanile'a HNS-T Premium Tenor Ukulele Solid Koa Turtles “RUGA” Made In Hawaii

* NOTE - You will receive the Kanile'a in the PHOTOS

These are one of the best selling Kanile'a Tenors that we carry and due to the premium koa wood and the stunning Hawaiian Sea Turtles in abalone they go very quickly.

This Kanile`a pays homage to the beautiful ocean that surrounds our island home of Hawai`i. For those who love Hawai`i, the water and our beautiful blue planet, this instrument is for you. Three playful honu (turtles) are captured in the colors of the sea found in New Zealand pāua (abalone). Watch them swim through the beautiful waves on a curly Koa soundboard.

What is Premium Koa? The Premium Koa wood is a step up from their Deluxe Koa wood and 2 steps up from their Select Koa wood. It offers absolutely stunning wood grains and powerful curves and swirls with beautiful color and flame.

No 2 pieces of Premium Koa wood are the same. Enjoy your individuality.

The K-1 Premium model is an upgraded wood choice that appeals to the player looking for a custom and stunning looking instrument with all the tradition and experience of Kanile`a Resonance, sustain and intonation are the key to making this the most popular Kanile`a sold by Kanile'a Ukuleles.

CUSTOM SETUP - Each Kanilea comes with a factory setup BUT I strongly recommend adding a setup especially if you want the easiest playability, have arthritis, or are particular about your setups and want a low action (how close the strings are to the fretboard) please click the "ADD Custom Setup" on this page.

* REQUIRED FOR WARRANTY - I cannot stress how important a humidifier is and I HIGHLY encourage you to get one. No matter where you live humidifiers not only protect your investment but also help the warranty process go smoother because you have taken the steps to ensure the safety and protection of your ukulele. If you ever have to file a claim with Kanilea the first question they will ask if you have a humidifier.

* Either the Oasis OH-18 (OH-32 for extra dry areas) or the Boveda Humidifier are recommended and available here at Click "ADD Humidifier"

* A PICKUP (several brands available) - Install times vary. If you want your instrument immediately please use the RUSH pickup option.

* NOTE - You will receive the Kanile'a in the PHOTOS
