        Best ukulele that I've ever owned or played!

        From the moment I pulled it out of the box, I could tell that is a well crafted uke. Every piece of wood is a good songwood and you can definitely hear the difference from knock off brands. However, order some different strings for this instrument when you buy it, the ones that it comes with are not the best in the world. A good set of martins will make this ukulele flawless.
        It has strings, a neck, and a soundhole. What more could you want?
        Amazing sound quality. Unlike the cheaper counterparts, it keeps in tune all the way down the neck. The instrument has an amazing timbre that you will love from the first time you strum it.
        Worth way more than I payed for it. Amazing value.

        baritone is NOT tenor uke-different

        The baritone uke takes different strings from Tenor. Need to make a note of this.

          Comments about Kohala KP-B Kanikapila Baritone Ukulele:

          This is my first ever uke so I did not know what to expect. This is a baritone uke, meaning this is the biggest of all the ukes. I had to google the tuning for this. I used the DGBE tuning to get the best sound. The sound for GCEA is just too low. Anyway, I bought this for my daughter but I ended up using it a lot. It is great for practice since the frets are smaller. It came with average strings and it will sound much better if you invest on better strings. I got this on Stupid Deal so I got my money's worth. Plus it came with a gig bag and a nice little tuner. Hope this helps.

              I play most anything with strings. I've avoided Ukes because they're pretty basic, and my wife hates the sound. But... I went ahead and bought this on a whim intending to only play it when the wife wasn't around. But wow... what fun... there's a whole genre of music I never even considered, but what a joy to experience - AND PLAY! You have to learn "Over the Rainbow/Wonderful World" in the style of Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. OK... so I'm late to the game, and everyone knows this tune, but I didn't. Morale of the story... if you're a good musician, buy a uke... it will open up a bit more music than you expect.

              A baby classical guitar

                    Comments about Kohala KP-B Kanikapila Baritone Ukulele:

                    They do a very good job making a basic instrument here. The only flaws I found were a tiny bit of glue on the body and one of the highest frets was bent a little.

                    Setup was pretty easy, there was a shim under the bridge that I pulled out and that lowered the action. Nut was actually very well done on mine.

                    Sound is nicely resonant, maybe a little dark. It really sounds as much like a classical guitar as a ukulele. For me, I got this instead of a classical guitar to work on fingerpicking and it has worked great for that.

                    The "package" this thing comes in is very cheap. The gig bag is more like a dust cover, I haven't got the tuner to work properly, and the book is a total joke. The book is so bad, literally a poorly done Islander patois that explains almost nothing except that the uke is about island style. A decent chord sheet would have been more useful. In fact, the book makes me question the seriousness of the entire brand!

                    If you get it on a Stupid Deal like I did, five stars. Regular price, four stars

                            Nice uke for the price. I bought it out of curiosity never playing a uke before. I chose the baritone for tone and similarity to guitar layout. I use it to write songs and found it quite a bit of fun for playing my guitar tunes on. Recently brought it with me on an out of town business trip to mess around with in motel. Even funner now that I installed a piezo pickup and lowered the action.

                                  Bought this for my 13 yo daughter.
                                  Out of the box: it looks and feels great. It was easy to tune, however I did not use the tuner that came with it, I used my own. I expected a little better sound quality, however it still sounds good.I plan on buying new tuning lugs and new strings soon to see if that will make a difference in sound. It came with a cloth/ zippered case which will not protect it from falls but would keep it clean while not in use.
