This is a new offering from Kala's USA factory in Petaluma. It's a modest, classic look, and a mid rich voice and projection above what you normally get from a concert. It has the more modern 15.5" concert scale and this one has the thinner 1 3/8" nut width like the classic Martin and many others are. Normally Kala Elites are 1.5" at the nut. This neck is also more slender or slim than their regular one. These aspects give this model a classic look and feel.This new offering from Kala's custom shop is simple, but clean, with precision craftsmanship, and a wonderful tone.

This is a laquer saitin finish with a very smooth feel and transparant look. Kala used the dark filler for a cool look sort of like a reverse "doghair" pore-fill finish that Collings offers. The result is quite a handsome instrument in it's own unassuming, non-flashy way. The sound, the feel, and the look make this tenor an excellent choice in this price range.
Earlier this year we did a factory tour video at Kala in Petaluma. Check it out and get to know the people making these ukes.
Custom Kala Elite Hardshell case and Music Nomad Humilele Humidifier included.
