Kanile'a Islander MST-4 Solid Mahogany Tenor Ukulele. Developed by the world renowned high-end ukulele brand, Kanile'a, the Islander range showcases a series of more affordable, Hawaiian designed instruments. Available in a selection of the classic ukulele tonewoods, Islander ukuleles are a real pleasure to play, with a sound quality that benefits from the more advanced Kanile'a designs.
The Solid mahogany series takes inspiration from Kanile'a's finest Hawaiian built instruments, brought exclusively to the Islander range for players looking for a super resonant, all solid instrument with warmth, character, and the signature Kanile'a feel and sound.
Kanile'a Islander MST-4 Solid Mahogany Tenor Ukulele is a perfect all solid wood option in gorgeously honey toned mahogany wood, with a traditional mainland sound full of character and richness. A perfect all round player and upgrade from a laminate instrument with the Kanile'a's quality stamp of approval makes this all solid mahogany ukulele highly attractive for players looking for a classic sound. Mahogany is warm and rich, with a focus on the mids, resulting in a sound with both bite and mellow sustain, perfect for more more rootsy styles, folk, bluegrass and blues.
Tastefully presented in a super sleek satin finish, the Islander MST-4 Ukulele design is attractively complimented with stylish traditional oval shaped tuning buttons, faux tortoiseshell binding with abalone rosette, and Kanile'a's signature contoured walnut bridge with robust ABS black bridge pins.
To accommodate a range of contemporary playing styles, and for enhanced comfort across the fretboard, Islander Ukuleles feature a wider than usual fretboard. The 38mm nut width is a request common for people with larger hands, making trickier chord shapes much easier to play, a feature that can benefit both experienced and beginner players finding their way on the instrument. Additionally, wider string spacing at the bridge is ideal for developing good fingerstyle playing, allowing for more relaxed fingerpicking and melody playing.
A remarkable achievement by a high end brand, Kanile'a have given their magic touch to the Islander range, retaining many of their signature design features to create a highly desirable ukulele. For next level players looking for an all solid wood stunner with a hint of Hawaii, the Kanile'a Islander MST-4 Solid Mahogany Tenor Ukulele comes highly recommended!
