Details

The Kala butterfly models feature arched backs which give them a very potent, punchy sound with warm overtones.

Take a listen as Kalei gives a "raw" sound sample of this concert.

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!

Options

When you buy this ukulele you can get a UkeCrazy gig bag or canvas covered hard case at an additional discount.  (Not required but suggested.) The UkeCrazy gig bag and canvas covered hard case can be seen in our cases category under the accessories tab at the top of this page. Other cases can also be chosen there. 

Setup Options

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

Put a note in the special instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything. 

Strap Buttons can be installed by going HERE

There are a few more options at the bottom,  but none are required. If you just buy the instrument you can still create a package from the cases and accessories on the site.

Aloha!
