This is a new tenor from Kala and it sounds and looks absolutely amazing! You would be hard pressed to find a better ukulele at this price, and with our setup and quality control you can't go wrong. This could very well may be just what you were looking for. 

We set up each instrument to ensure you get the absolute best for your money! This includes Saddle and Nut heights, Fret work and intonation checks, and a thorough inspection for cosmetic flaw. And always, we are dedicated to giving you honest and expert service and advice!

We always include a humidifier with solid wood instruments. This is not an option, and we do not charge for it. However, if you live in a cold or dry climat please upgrade to the oasis humidifier.

This one is great with a Low G also, so if you would like, we would be glad to set up it up that way for you. No charge just tell us under special instructions.

Beautiful looks and sound!
This ukulele is a great choice! This was my second ukulele and I was looking for an upgrade at a decent price. The sound is very full and beautiful. I'm in love with the slotted headstock and the wood on the body is even more beautiful in person than in the photos. I did not receive a humidifier with the ukulele as promised, but emailed Hawaii Music Supply and they sent an Oasis humidifier (the upgrade) right over at no charge! Great customer service, great ukulele, great price!

Absolutely lovely, and a joy to play.
This is a fantastic instrument. The lines, coloring and wood grain all look better in person. I was concerned about the gloss finish, as I tend to prefer matte, but it just works with the acacia and paduuk wood tones. The slot-head gives it a visual distinctiveness, and the tuners are smooth and effective. Setup by the Ukulele Site team was superb, and included an upgrade to Worth Brown strings. The result of dedicated setup and this string choice has been an immediately-playable instrument that sounded broken in right out of the box, and has continued to improve over three months of heavy daily play. One note is that this Uke likes to be humidified--sound deteriorates rapidly if case humidity level falls below ~50%. I use the Oasis guitar (tan colored) humidifier, as the Uke (blue) version did not provide enough h2o. This is my second Uke, a step-up from the Luna Great Wave Pineapple Soprano (which is also great for its price point), and I couldn't be happier, with it. Thanks to the fine folks at HMS for making it happen. Cheers!

Have not put it down since I got it

Lovely to look at, delightful to play.
This has become one of my favorite ukuleles. I picked it up on the mainland at a designated guitar/ukulele shop that does its own set-ups, But those sorts of shops are few and far between outside of Hawaii, so I'd recommend buying this through HMS. I also have a Kala spruce top (a concert set up by HMS) and the contrast between these two tonewoods is striking. The cedar is much warmer, which is not to say muffled. Notes ring out clearly, but the sound is more delicate. Intonation is good. As others have noted, the looks of this uke are striking-the binding and the circle around the sound hole draw together the autumnal colors. The gloss is gorgeous. All in all, the cedar top gloss tenor is first rate.

STUNNING sound and look!!
I decided on this model as my first tenor specifically for the looks and how it sounded on your website . I had it upgraded with Red Aquilas, and the binding and rosette just POP off the uke! The sound from the cedar top projects amazingly and beautifully! I've had a hard time putting it down since it arrived. In my opinion, worth WELL more than the sticker price. Mahalo nui loa!!

looks way better in person than the photo on the website
I love love love my Kala KA-ATP-CT Gloss Tenor Slothead that came from HMS. The sound is perfectly balance for me, the finish is flawless, looks way better in person than the photo on the website, it just feels good to hold. One detail that you can’t see in the picture is the Kala logo is laser cut to reveal the darker wood in the headstock, then filled with the finish. This shows the depth of the logo , not just printed on then glossed over. It’s the small things that make this uke a great deal.
I had a little problem with the strings and the guys took care if it right away, (Not Kala or Aquila’s fault). Prep and shipping was fast, got to California in two days once shipped. I have a low G and it is a nice fit. You can’t go wrong with this one, especially when you factor in the price.

Amazing Sound!
When I was shown this Ukulele, I was told that it had a cedar top and sounded great, so I tried it. I was immediately convinced. I was looking for an economical but great sounding guitar. I have purchased Kala products in the past including the Acoustic and Solid Kala UBasses. I have not been disappointed. This ukulele, however, sounded so great for the price that I had to have it. I note that it is made in China, but the workmanship is flawless. The only thing that I noticed was not the same as the more costly ukuleles was that the tuners are not as smooth. They hold the tune well however, so I would not let that stop me. The Cedar top does resonate beautifully and the Slotted headstock is really cool to look at. I didn't purchase this at HMS, but I definitely would have had I not wanted it "now". The setup that they offer can't be beat. You won't be disappointed! Robert
