This is a new offering from Kala's USA factory in Petaluma. It's a modest, classic look, and a mid rich voice with plenty of body and sustaining warm tone. It's the 17" tenor scale, more modern styled 1.5" nut width for a little more space when chording or picking, and a simple, but clean precision craftsmanship from these California ukulele makers.

This is a laquer saitin finish with a very smooth feel and transparant 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.
Last 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.
