Solid Cedar Top - Ziricote Sides & Back - Padauk Binding - Slothead - Gloss Finish - Cutaway Body - Pickup w/Onboard Tuner & EQ

This is a new tenor that we had Kala make exclusively for us. We have been serious fans of the solid cedar top models in Kala's line. We asked them to combine that with the striking beauty of their Ziricote line. This exotic hardwood is a three-piece laminate, but carries all the look of a super high-end custom instrument and the sound of this tenor is absolutely fantastic! The volume is exceptional and it has that "open" quality you can get with a high quality solid western red cedar top.

This model also has a cutaway body for easy access to the highest frets and an active pickup system. The pickup has an onboard volume and EQ as well as a tuner which is very convenient. The battery compartment is also conveniently located on the side of the instrument. It's amazing what you get with this tenor for the price!

Take a listen to a dry sound sample from Kalei and then we'll go over some of the other features of this new exclusive Kala tenor.

Other features include a slotted headstock which boldly displays a zircote faceplate and wood logo, and Padauk binding on the top, back, and fingerboard.   This design and wood choices on this tenor contrast and complement each other for a truly beautiful instrument. You would be hard-pressed to find a better ukulele at this price, and with our setup and quality control you can't go wrong.

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. Just let us know in the special instructions.

Please add the hard case in the options if you do not have one ready to use to protect it. It does include the Herco humidifier, however, if you live in a cold or dry climate please upgrade to the oasis humidifier.

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.

Custom Options

You can add strap buttons by going to the strap button installation listing from the Accessories tab at the header menu after adding this to your cart.

The Herco HE360 is the included humidifier. You can upgrade to the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+). This is a must if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or if you heat the air most of the day and night. For more info see our Ukulele Care link at the bottom of the site.

If you want a different set of strings you can buy them at the strings section and just note that you want us to change them in the Special Instructions.

Beautiful ukulele at a decent price
Beautiful uke! The ziricote is gorgeous. Sounds great with the solid cedar top. Mine gets occasional buzzing, but it could just be my beginner playing skills.

Wicked cool ukulele
I have "a few" ukuleles at my home. UAS is in residence here! I didn't have an electric uke and fell in lust with the acacia version of this instrument when a member of the ukulele group I play with, brought one in one day. I loved everything about his ukulele except for the acacia back and sides. Don't get me wrong here, they were beautiful, just not my taste. I wanted one...badly, acacia be damned!! I just didn't want to be a "copy cat' with my uke. He and I play in two different groups and this ukulele fits right in with both. Our other group is a veterans' rock band kind of thing. We're a bunch of senior veterans who always wanted to be rockers, and so (at least in our minds) we are. There are a couple of songs that elude me when I pick up my guitar. Now, I have that wicked little Kala that I can plug in and fill the musical gap. At first I was a wee bit disappointed that the ziricote had no blonde streaks in it. But the more I looked at it, I fell in love with the deep, rich brown color. It goes perfectly with the cedar. It came to me set up perfectly (as always), and ready to play right out of the box. I lead the songs with the ukulele group and this cool uke helps me be heard. I cant say enough good about this ukulele. Okay. Enough. I'm pau.

Excellent instrument
This is a really nice ukulele. It feels solid, and sounds crisp and clean. The binding in the pictures look red, but in person, it is a warm reddish brown color. It looks quite nice, and goes really well with the rosewood back and sides.
This ukulele is worth the money I spent on it. I will say though that I was only willing to get a Kala from HMS because of there set up process. Imported instruments, even though better than they used to be, are not always consistent. Kala is no exception to this rule. Mine plays like a top notch ukulele with the included set up. I am very pleased.

Beautiful Ukulele
Love this Uke! The fit and finish is superb. The pictures do not do it justice, The tone, sound and intonation are exceptional. My compliments to KALA and The Ukulele Site for an excellent product and great value!
