Kala Tenor Mahogany Gloss- KA-TG

This is a sharp lookin' tenor that plays great! (after we set it up). This Kala Mahogany tenor in a beautiful gloss finish is certainly one of the best deals you can find. It takes a jump in quality from the popular KA-T by adding a smooth gloss finish, purflings and a rosette. The price is only a small step up to what many consider a much more attractive ukulele.

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!

Have a real Uke will start a revolution...
I started to play my roommate's toy ukulele for fun a few weeks ago, and decided to buy my own after I learned a few songs. I just unpacked my order, and it is absolutely beautiful, fantastic sound and the set up is absolutely the best. I already have a wish list for an upgrade. HMS will be where I'd go first.
I now dream of playing it all the time.
I think I am going to bring it to work... and start a uke revolution.

It's all in the set up
This is a moderately low priced ukulele but you wouldn't know it when you played. The neck is a nice thickness, the frets were comfortably dressed and the action was superb. I thought the sound was very pleasant not brassy but clear and balanced. I bought this as a gift for my son who just started playing a few months back. He was thrilled and inspired to play. The setup on this Ukulele was phenomenal. The action was perfect. I purchased a $200 Ukulele from a different online music store and after a couple of months had to take it to my local luthier because the action was very bad. $50 bucks later it's now pleasant to play but still doesn't compare to the less expensive ukulele set up by HMS. Thanks to Andrew, Zach, Aaron and whoever did the work on this Ukulele. I'l never buy a ukulele anywhere else. ps The buffed finished on this glossy Kala Ukulele was gorgeous.

My New Uke
What did I do? I NEVER should have bought this uke! Now, I want to quit my job, sell the house and live in a van under the bridge just so that I can spend the whole day playing this thing! Beautiful sound and construction. Easy action means easy playing for a novice like me.
Seriously though...this is one of the best beginner tenors out there. The set-up these guys do is flawless. Packaging, transit and everything else was above and beyond. When I'm ready for an upgrade, it'll be HMS without hesitation.

Awesome
When I opened the packaged box I was surprised at the quality look of this ukulele. It exceeded my expectations.

This is my first uke that I've bought for myself. I used to play my cousin's Kamaka tenor years ago but I couldn't justify spending that much for something I wasn't sure I'd pursue.

Grabbing this uke has changed that. It only fed my longing for a more expensive/quality uke. Thank you HMS for catering to us beginners.

Shipping time was a bit slow, but it was worth the wait. I will definitely be ordering from HMS again. Probably a Pono next time.

Go to Uke
It was my second uke after a Lanikai LU21 soprano. Back then, I'm still experimenting with uke size, and it seems I'm most comfortable with tenor.

I like it very much. I got mine locally in Malaysia. Sounds loud and crisp, and certainly great uke.

Just My opinion
I own two Uke's myself a Fender and a Lanakai, to be perfectly honest I have played many uke's at the local stores and they were not impressive, I honestly believe that the set up makes all the difference in the world.
Having said that to my ears the Kala TG has a certain ring and tone to it that appeals to me not overly bright but certainly not flat either.
A beautiful finish and quality set up make it a very good buy for your money.
Trust me for under 200 dollars get a ukulele that has been properly set up , it makes a world of difference. Dennis

Bang for the buck!
Purchased this model recently from my local music store because I wanted a tenor for low G tuning. For being an inexpensive laminate, it has an outstanding tone! (Only odd thing is, mine has a smaller soundhole than the one pictured here; soundhole diameter is exactly as wide as the fretboard at that point...wonder why?) And the string spacing at the bridge is as wide as my KoAloha tenor, which makes it great for fingerstyle playing.
Money well spent!

A great instrument with an amazing price
Bought my uke @ the Ukelele Site store in North Shore (Haleiwa, Oahu). This is first uke and can honestly say I thought they had mispriced the instrument. Beautiful looking wood with high gloss finish with fantastic tone quality. I am also a drummer and guitarist. I wanted a uke from the first time I saw Troy Fernandez play. During my rewarding visit to the North Shore store, I looked at many more expensive ukes but actually liked the look, feel, and sound of my Kala KA-TG model. It plays so easy and am profoundly impressed with the joy it brings out every time I tune up and play !

Excellent Uke!
This is a fantastic Uke for someone who is getting into the tenor ukulele. It's very well made, the finish looks fantastic, the body is strong yet light. I couldn't be happier with my purchase! This Uke always stays in tune for me and the strings that come with it give the Uke a great tone and some volume too. A great uke, money well spent.
