From the very popular all solid mahogany series from Kala come this tenor cutaway with pickup. Great solid Mahogany tone with the classic Martin tone and look. This model comes ready to plug in for live or recording use. Corey samples the SMHT-E for us here (not plugged in)
This is pretty much a Martin tenor that was so well loved and used by Lyle Ritz and a bunch of the first jazz ukulele players. Martin stopped making this model many years ago, but the Kala SMH series really takes off from that classic ukulele but with a tie bridge like a Kamaka Tenor. Voiced to be articulate and still full, this tenor ukulele will give you everything you need. If you just have a starter ukulele step up to an all solid wood one like this and you will truly hear a big difference! Couple that with the setup work we put into it and you will love the Sound and the Feel!!
We are not a marketing focused company. We spend much more time behind a bench making ukes like this one play and feel great. We set up each instrument to ensure you get the absolute best for your money! This includes Saddle and Nut heights, Fret work (usually planing or "dressing"), intonation checks, and a thorough inspection for cosmetic flaw. This is crucial for this middle price range where you can really get close to a high end tenor feel from our work. And always, we are dedicated to giving you honest and expert service and advice!
We always include a humidifier with solid wood instruments. This is not an option, and we do not charge for it.
