    KA-SC- Solid Spruce Top Concert!

    A best seller in the store for many years and now with improved volume and attack!! It's a small step up to this solid top concert from the entry level and it is quite a difference. Also, a solid spruce top will keep improving in warmth and resonance making it a great musical companion for many years. 

    With Kala, as with many makers, the satin and gloss are both a lacquer finish. Satin gets a final coat that makes it a more natural sheen. It needs less coats and often has a cleaner attack and "woodier" tone.

    Kala has over 100 models, so we add to the online store what we think you will truly love the most. This is a fantastic concert ukulele! And after our setup it's a value you can't beat!

    A key factor to this great value that we attest to is our custom setup that we give every ukulele that leaves our shop.

     

    Fitted with a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, these ukes project a rich warm sound. Traditional white/black binding accent the high gloss finish and chrome die-cast tuners will keep your instrument in tune. Active EQ options available.

    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.

    When you buy this ukulele you can get a UkeCrazy gig bag or canvas covered hard case at an additional discount. (Not required but suggested.) The UkeCrazy gig bag and canvas-covered hardcase can be seen in our cases category under the Accessories tab at the top of this page. Other cases can also be chosen there. 

    One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area.(parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc..) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you are heating the air in your house. For more info refer to the ukulele care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

    Put a note in the special instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything. 

    After adding this instrument to your cart, you can still create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

    Under the accessories tab you can also customize this instrument by adding strap button(s) or your choice of pickup for plugging in. 

    Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your cart reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free UPS 2 day shipping. 2 days is the time in transit, your instrument will first go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money.

    Great Uke, Great setup, great service
    After playing a laminated mahogany concert for a year I wanted to move up. I did a lot of research on the Internet and kept coming back to HMS, because of their reputation for service and excellent setups. I ordered my KALA KA-SCG from HMS in January of this year. Andrew, Joel, and Aaron were very helpful. I described the way I play in an e-mail to Joel and when the KALA arrived the setup was right on. I wasn't prepared for how bright and loud the KA-SCG would be. It's the spruce top and the Aquila Super Nylgut strings. I swapped out the Aquilas for less bright strings and the more I play this little jewel, the more I love it. The action is terrific, the sustain is great and it has no intonation problems. Did I mention the neck is super fast. The finish is beautiful โ€“ the urethane looks like it's 1/4โ€ deep. This is a great Uke. It has made me a better player. Thanks HMS. When I'm ready for that Pono I'll be back.

    Great ukulele
    So I did a lot of research before I bought a ukulele. I already had a 30$ saprano and I want to upgrade. When it came in I was really happy and it looked and and play amazing. Play it every night and love playing for my friends. These guys know what they are doing so don't worry about ordering online because they will take care of you. So glad I bought this and I'm definitely going to buy from this website more.

    Sweet Little UKULELE
    I have tried for years to get my daughter to play an instrument. Bought her a really nice Baby T a few years back. She has even plucked at a cheap little ukulele. NOTHING has sparked the fever. Until now . The feel , playability and sound of this ukulele is nothing short of fine. I can't say enough about the quality and the smoothness of play. Great setup, no buzz, intonation is dead on. I was told by my daughter just three days before that she had no interest at all in learning to play. That so change when she strummed the little gem. There was this change in her eyes and face like awwwww. Saw her today and she is complaining about her fingers being sore. Great deal, great sound, and so smooth. Buy one you can't go wrong.

    An excellent first uke
    This was the first uke I bought. It loved it as soon as I held it. It was so easy to play, and was set up just right. Plus it sounded good when I sat in front whikle somone who really knew how to play played it.

    No regrets on this one for a first uke!

    Warm, sweet, bright tone
    Kala's solid spruce top concert is a step-above the entry level ukulele, great for the serious beginner, even better for the intermediate musician. As noted by another reviewer, the neck is on the narrow side, making it easier for me, at least, to play barre chords (my hands are on the small side). The solid spruce top produces a tone warm and bright and with good sustain. Possibly due to the set-up provided by HMS, the intonation is more than acceptable. Another reviewer mentioned seeing glue along the neck joint, mine has no such issues. Mine is smooth as silk, with a light, silky smooth finish. All in all, I could not be more pleased.

    Nice for small hands
    This was my first real uke and I still pick it up though it has become my 7 year old son's. The tone is loud and clear, sustain is decent and the workmanship is very good for the price. The neck is quite narrow so small hands will like it though new players with large hands (like me) may have a hard time as the G and A strings are easy to push right off the edge if you aren't careful. Mine came with Aquila strings which is a great match as it can have quite a bit of volume with this combo. Overall, a great uke for a new player with small hands and limited budget.

    Excellent value for the price
    I still have this ukulele... even if I now have much more expensive models. The spruce is nicely figured the build is great for a production model (even if you can see some glue along the neck joint. The intonation and action is average but good enough for me (I usually wince on cheaper models from Kala, but not on this one). All in all excellent value for the money !

    Superb mid-range beginners ukulele
    This was my first serious ukulele, and it is still serving me well years later! It holds a lovely smooth sound while retaining the classic Hawaiian feel, and had only grown on me with age!

    I would highly recommend this ukulele, and Kala in general for people who are looking to take a step up into real ukuleles after learning on a cheap laminated one.

    Superb mid-range beginners ukulele
    This was my first serious ukulele I bought, and it is still serving me well many years later! I holds a beautiful smooth sound while still keeping the Hawaiian feel.

    This is a perfect ukulele for someone who is wanting to take a step up from the $30 ukuleles, but doesn't want to skimp on sound.
