Joe and Kristen Souza run this humidity controlled and technology advanced workshop in Kaneohe with a team of talented craftsmen. They recently acquired a forest on the Big Island that they are planting Koa trees on and utilizing fallen trees with excellent wood. And that is one aspect that Kanile’a really has an advantage. They have amazing, and I mean amazing koa all the time! It’s ridiculous. How can you not be drawn toward such beautiful koa, and finished to perfection. They’re rich in tone, look gorgeous, and are reasonable for what you get. You can view available models at our website HERE. This is a look at a few of the models. We have had hundreds of different Kanile’a models and they always introduce more. So check this out for a fun overview, but regularly check the website because we try to grab from them weekly.
Kanile’a is one of the popular local builders on the island. In fact we sell more Kanile’a in store and on line than any other high end ukulele brand. That’s because they look beautiful, sound great, and while they aren’t cheap by any means, they’re quite the value all across the line.
