Islander by Kanile’a – Solid Mahogany Ukulele!
Model: MSS-4
Serial No. 5104436

Islander by Kanile’a:
The Islander is Kanilea’s intermediate level instrument. Every Islander instrument is designed by Kanile’a and made exclusively for them in China. Every detail, including materials, bracing, assembly adhesives, and the finishing process was designed by Kanile’a. The Islanders have their own unique charm. The solid mahogany models have a rich wonderful voice that is balanced and projects well, nearly as well as their Koa cousins. Some even argue that mahogany is the preferred ukulele wood!
The Islander brand by Kanile’a offers a musician an affordable intermediate level instrument without any compromising.

This Ukulele is from the Islander Solid Mahogany Series. As only a quality solid wood instrument can, it offers rich tone with incredible sustain that combine for a bright yet balanced dynamic sound.  This sound reflects toward the voice of its Hawaiian Koa Kanile’a cousin and is offered at a price that is more affordable.

Solid Mahogany back and sides highlighted with classy Tortoise bindings on the top and the back with an elegant abalone rosette inlay. It makes ones’ visual senses smile. The nut is 1/8” wider when compared to what most other companies offer. This, combined with a silky neck profile, allows fingering difficult chords and extended playtime a breeze.
The pin style bridge, as found on all the Kanile’a Ukes, make changing strings a quick and easy process. It is costlier to make but surely the better design.

Humifaction & String changing:
All solid wood ukes require a watchful eye on the humidity level. Forty to fifty percent is the ideal amount of humidity for a ukulele. We don’t let any solid wood instruments out the door without a few words on care. When stowing away your solid wood ukulele, place it in an environment where you can control the humidity. We include at no cost a D’Addario case or instrument humidifier, depending if you purchased a case or not.

If you own a Kanile`a or an Islander ukulele, string changing is easier but somewhat different from the standard ukulele. In this video, Master Luthier and Kanile`a co-owner Joe Souza gives us step-by-step instructions on how to master this technique.

To protect and help you enjoy your new Islander instrument we include at no additional charge the following D’Addario products:
- Instrument or case Humidifier for Ukulele.
- Spare Nyltech Soprano string set, EJ88S. Designed in     Cooperation with Aquila.
- Eclipse Tuner
