I got this ukulele for christmas and I can say that i LOVE it!
It looks really beautiful and it "feels good" to hold, It sounds beautiful and the strings that comes with it are really good so you don't have to change them, you can just take it out of the box and play right away after you tune it with the built in tuner! I don't know what more to write about it but I will say that is's a really good ukulele with a beautiful tone. I recomend you to buy this ukulele and have fun with it!

Great sound, great value
I bought this to replace my "novelty" Uke I had hanging in my TiKi bar. I wanted something that was playable down the whole neck and could be plugged into my recording gear. Even though this is on the low end of the Uke price scale it sounds amazing. Plugged in or acoustic I play this almost daily. I did swap in a low G because I like that sound. I was in Oahu in October and stopped by the store in Haleiwa. Cory was there and played Cannon for us. Sorry I forgot the other dudes name but props to his playing as well! I definitely recommend a case, you will take your Uke more places without worrying about damaging it. Too bad I couldn't get that solid Pono for the marked price...I saw it but knew it was wrong. I would never do wrong by you guys and I'm glad It was me and not someone who would push the issue.

I got this Ukulele in February and I find it so hard to leave it alone and the on board tuner is amazing I am never out of tune the feel of the wood the sound that it produces is unbelievable especially for the price and I will definitely buy another one, thanks Hawaii Music Supply Rock on!!!!

Great uke for a a starter.
For the price this uke is an absolute steal, I have owned one in both full body and cutaway designs for 3 years now and neither have failed me. The kala value is excellent as usual and both ukes have been through their fair share of abuse on the road, in fact it is my go to travel uke. Sound is decent, but what can you expect from a uke at this price point.

Excellent !
I purchased this Uke for my daughter (so that she would not play my Martin Tenor). I selected the 'electric' feature because she does play at parties and gatherings. The quality and workmanship (and SET UP) are excellent ! The on board tuner is a real bonus when playing live! Playability and tone are excellent - to compare it to a C.F. Martin Tenor may be unfair - but it holds up well ! I find myself playing this Kala quite often ! Everyone who has played it is quite impressed by amazing sound that comes out of this Uke !

Great purchase
I bought this for my brother. I could not believe the value for the price point. The setup was dead on and it plays wonderfully. The Aquila strings sound great and plays easily. I highly recommend this product for someone wanting to try "plugging in" for the first time!
