    Solid Cedar Top - Ziricote Sides & Back - Padauk Binding - Slothead - Gloss Finish

    This is a new tenor that 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" or "broken in" quality you can get from a high quality solid western red cedar top.

     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.

    This tenor has a really attractive slotted headstock with a ziricote faceplate and maple inlayed logo. Some people think slotted headstocks sound better. I don't think it affects the tone but I do think it looks nice, especially with this these beautiful woods. Speaking of which, padauk, a bold looking wood with its deep earthy red color, frames off the body and fretboard and is also tied in with the rosette.

    This design and wood choices on this tenor contrast and compliment 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. No charge just tell us under 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.

    I like!
    Just received my Kala ZTP-CTG (exclusive) ukulele. I was initially looking to get the Kala KA-ATP-CTG as a uke to keep at work. I was looking for one and saw this ukulele site exclusive.

    I have to say it is beautiful and the gloss finish is gorgeous! The uke is much lighter weight than what I had expected. It is much lighter weight than my Pono MTSH and about the same weight as my HF-3. The Ziricote has a very nice pattern and looks great. I was a little concerned that the Paduuk Binding and Rosette was going to be too red but it is more of a reddish/ brown. The contrast of the bindings with the Ziricote sides/back and Cedar top is perfect. Im also a sucker for slot head ukes. I think the faceplate is Ziricote.

    As far as the sound. It projects very well and pretty loud. My other ukes are solid wood ukes but this sounds pretty good for what it is. I have only had it for a couple hours so I expect it to settle in some after some play time. I will probably change out the strings because I am not a fan of the Aquila sound. Not sure if I could comment on the cedar top yet.

    Thanks Andrew and the HMS/Ukulele team for this great uke!
