Regular Price: $849.00

Availability: Out of stock



This is a new offering from Kala's USA factory in Petaluma. It's a modest, classic look, and a mid rich voice and projection above what you normally get from a concert.  It has the more modern 15.5" concert scale and this one has the thinner 1 3/8" nut width like the classic Martin and many others are. Normally Kala Elites are 1.5" at the nut. This neck is also more slender or slim than their regular one. These aspects give this model a classic look and feel.This new offering from Kala's custom shop is simple, but clean, with precision craftsmanship, and a wonderful tone.

Pics AND video shows the one available now to you (if it says "In Stock"). 

Our sound samples are recorded for true reference and have no alteration or enhancement. Use quality playback for the most accurate listening.

This is a semi gloss finish with a very smooth feel and transparent look. Kala used the dark filler for a cool look sort of like a reverse "doghair" 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 and Music Nomad Humilele Humidifier included.

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.

Custom Options

We can install the MiSi with its rechargeable preamp or the new L.R. Baggs 5.0 ukulele pickup. Also you can add strap buttons by going to the strap button installation listing from the Accessories tab at the header menu after adding this to your cart.

Extra Options

The Herco HE360 is the included humidifier. You can upgrade to the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+). This is a must if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or if you heat the air most of the day and night. For more info see our Ukulele Care link at the bottom of the site.

If you want a different set of strings you can buy them at the strings section and just note that you want us to change them in the Special Instructions.

No extra charge for Low G.
