    Beautiful Sound.
    A few months ago, after browsing YouTube and comparing different ukulele sizes, I decided that I was going to buy a concert. I researched all of the different models and brands in this price range, listened to cuts of people playing them online, and ultimately ended up walking into the Ukulele Site store with a list of about 10 ukes.

    This one was by far my favorite. It sounded fantastic, and even though it was much oranger than I would have typically liked, there ended up being no contest. It's still playing wonderfully and I always get compliments from other players who pick it up. :) Would definitely recommend.

    Great value!
    This was my first "proper" ukulele. I purchased it after finding HMS on the internet after a disappointing experience with a ukulele I bought from a big retailer.

    I don't know how much of the quality comes from Kala and how much can be attributed to the set-up, but I do know it plays like butter and sounds really nice. It was a great starter ukulele for this beginner and still the most playable ukulele I own.

    I was surprised
    I bought this uke as a valentines gift for my girlfriend. It was her first uke and I knew that having a decent uke makes a world of difference in fostering excitement about playing. It was actually available at a local store (and I even had it in my hands, moments away from buying it) but I decided to wait and order it from HMS instead. They do fantastic work on these ukes and it's worth waiting the week or so for them to have it sent to you.

    When it arrived I checked it out for her and I was really surprised. It's a beautiful instrument and I felt like the sound was on par with my first kala (solid top golden acacia, also a great uke).

    Do I recommend this ukulele? It's true that it's a laminate, but if you're looking for a really nice uke without breaking the bank then this is a great choice.

    One of the best laminates you can find
    I've had this model for over a year now and still love it. I tried a bunch of different laminates in stores before buying and this one sounded much better than the others.
    A few months into playing it I noticed the intonation was a bit off as I went up the neck (I bought it at a local store that doesn't do HMS type setups). A minor adjustment to the nut fixed that and it's pretty spot on now.
    Great volume, sustain and tone. It would be hard to find a better uke for the price.

    One of the best laminates you can find
    I've had mine for over a year now and still love it. I played a bunch of laminates in different stores before buying and this one sounded better than all of them.
    After a few months of playing I noticed the intonation was a bit off when I went higher up on the neck (I bought it from a local store that doesn't do HMS type setups). A small adjustment at the nut fixed that and it's pretty spot on now. Good projection, sustain, tone. Perfect uke to learn on. It would be hard to find a better one for the price.

    Beautiful instrument, great value
    This instrument sounds good and looks great too. A close inspection may reveal some less than perfect details, but only because its nice enough to inspire a search for perfection. It's not a handmade instrument with every detail perfected, but it is quite stunning, especially for the price. The matte finish feels nice to the touch, and the setup by ukulele site minimizes any buzzing issues-- I had to try pretty hard to hear any. Very pleased with this and glad that I got it here!

    quality feel and mellow tone
    I got this Kala Concert size exotic mahogany model about 4 months ago as an upgrade from a soprano Lanakai. I has a much more solid feel and the craftmanship is of a beautiful quality. The exotic mahogany offers a beautiful wood grain and has a nice mellow tone. It came with Aquila strings ans stays in tune very well.

    Great Uke to Start With!
    I got this as my first ukulele. I did some research and wanted to get something a little nicer than the most basic models, but something cheap enough that I wouldn't feel like I wasted money if I didn't stick with it. I love it, plays great for the price. It looks good too. There's some buzzing, but nothing awful, and mine doesn't have any cosmetic issues. I have Aquila strings on mine and the sound is fairly loud and punchy (not very mellow or warm if that's what you're looking for). If you're looking for a durable, reasonably priced uke to start out with, I highly recommend it.
