This is a new offering from Kala's USA factory in Petaluma. It's a mahogany tenor with a clear, sustaining warm sound and a striking new finish. This is what's been called the "doghair" finish.  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 and precise build from these California ukulele makers.

Pics AND video show 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 lacquer finish done in a unique process. It's basically finished in the same way as there regular gloss but with a black sealer coat and white pore filler. The result is quite a unique and handsome instrument looking instrument. The sound, the feel, and the look make this tenor one of our favorites.

A few years ago 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.
