This is a new offering from Kala's USA factory in Petaluma. It's a mahogany baritone with a clean simple look and big, awesome tone.
The baritone is tuned D-G-B-E like the high 4 strings on a guitar and it has an extra deep, warm tone. This one is a slightly shorter 19" scale baritone and the projection is fantastic. The fretboard is roomy and comfortable and this comes as a package with the deluxe wood case and Nomad humidifier.

This is a lacquer satin finish with a very smooth feel and transparent look. Kala used the dark filler for a cool look. Sort of like a reverse "dog-hair" 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, Nomad Humilele Humidifier, and of course our final setup included.
