The Kala butterfly models feature arched backs which give them a very potent, punchy sound with warm overtones. Other premium features include beautiful maple/rosewood rope binding with spruce binding on back, a mahogany neck , a rosewood fretboard & bridge, a Custom Butterfly headstock inlay, a black GraphTech NuBone nut & saddle, and a set of open-geared tuning machines with black buttons.

Take a listen as Kalei gives a "raw" sound sample of this same model but with pickup. (this one doesn't come w the pickup) Sound sample is acoustic.

Now a staple in the exotic dark wood category, The Butterfly Ukulele features Bocote, a highly figured wood found in Mexico. It highlights broad, sweeping grain patterns of light and dark brown. They feature arched backs which give the ukes a very potent, punchy sound with warm overtones. The body is trimmed with traditional Maple/Rosewood rope binding and custom beveled Spruce binding on the back. A beautiful wood “Butterfly” inlay adorns the headstock top which has been stained a dark brown. All models have high-quality tuners, Graphtech black NUBONE nuts and saddles and are strung with Aquila strings.

We set up each instrument to ensure you get the absolute best for your money! This includes Saddle and Nut heights, Fret work (usually planing or "dressing"), intonation checks, and a thorough inspection for cosmetic flaw. This is crucial for this middle price range where you can really get close to a high end tenor feel from our work. And always, we are dedicated to giving you honest and expert service and advice!
