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.

Pics show the one available here to you (if it says "In Stock"). Video shows same model.

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 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.

Simplicity well done
This is an entry level from Kala's recent northern California shop I consider a good value for luthier. Nice tone after a month. Wide fretboard makes easy for my fat fingers. And I find easy switching to narrower spacings on my guitar. Elegant neck gives large hand more room in first position (unlike a cedar Kala ukulele made in China I have). One nit: wish the tuners felt more buttery to touch. Add my praise to folks at Ukulele site. Very generous spirit translates even over long distances!
