Kala -KA-ACP-CTG Gloss Concert Slothead 

Solid Cedar Top - Acacia Side & Back - Paduuk Binding - Gloss Finish

For the first time Kala introduces a concert with a slotted headstock. It is light weight with excellent balance. Aside from being absolutely gorgeous, this is quite possibly the biggest sounding concert Kala has ever made. We love this new model and think you will also. 

We set up each instrument to ensure you get the absolute best for your money! This includes Saddle and Nut heights, Fret work and intonation checks, and a thorough inspection for cosmetic flaw. And always, we are dedicated to giving you honest and expert service and advice!

We always include a humidifier with solid wood instruments. This is not an option, and we do not charge for it. However, if you live in a cold or dry climat please upgrade to the oasis humidifier.

This one is great with a Low G also, so if you would like, we would be glad to set up it up that way for you. No charge just tell us under special instructions.

I love this ukulele
Bought mine in 2016 from The Ukulele Site. Excellent setup. Very mellow, especially since I replaced the Fremont Soloist Low G and Aquilas with La Bella 100s and 100-G low G. The La Bellas are also easier on my fingers, but I know some prefer the brighter sound of Aquilas. A beautiful instrument, nicely crafted, and an excellent value.

Absolutely the best uke for the money
I bought this model used on eBay, so it doesn't benefit from the legendary HMS set up. Even so, this uke has a gorgeously full sound- warm, but with shimmering highs and great low end response with a lowG. Fit & finish is superb, with the high gloss making the lightly figured acacia look a mile deep. Absolutely the best uke for the money, and with an HMS set up you simply can't go wrong!

Great in low G
Have another Kala in this size with a spruce top tuned high G but wanted another tenor in low G for some variety. The cedar top really makes low G
tuning shine. Really nice full sound. Set up was spot on.

Thanks Guys

Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous
Not only does this thing sound fantastic, but it is beautiful. Unusual, but beautiful. A study in tones of orange. Subtle in some ways, outstanding in others.

I know that sounds freakish and odd, but the padauk rosette and binding really tie it together beautifully with the cedar, acacia, rosewood, and mahogany. The cedar top is superb in sound.

I too have the low G, and it works wonderfully with it, highly resonant.

You won't be disappointed, particularly for the amount of the investment.

Right price great looks and sound
Sounds better than ukes at double the cost. It's well made, looks great, sounds great. Intonation on A string was a bit off. Changed the string ( and others at same time ). Intonation completely fixed !. After you get in touch with the instrument you can make it sing. Good work Kala !

Outstanding Across the Board
Warm (read: not bright), loud, and highly resonant (it vibrates when I strum it), this ukulele demonstrates the potential of cedar on acacia. Hawaiian Music Supply chose, setup, and shipped a truly beautiful instrument, both sonically and aesthetically. Great intonation up, down and across the fretboard; they set this one up with a low G and it has now become my go-to uke for playing jazz and bossa nova style tunes. Now I can't wait to get the tenor size!
