Description

Details

This is a new 8 string tenor from Kala and it sounds amazing! It has an octave-doubled G and C string, and unison E and A strings. It's played the same as a 4 string but gives a full sweet chiming sound like two ukes playing together. With the solid cedar top you get a huge lush tone with body and warmth and we think you are going to love it! Beautiful tones and gorgeous looks with the acacia sides and back, padauk bindings, and glassy finish. Corey gives us a raw sound sample. 

"Cedar continues to be a popular tonewood due to its rich harmonics and lush tone, making it great for fingerstyle picking. The Acacia back and sides add a midrange focus with clarity and warmth. Padauk rosette and binding and a slotted headstock add a classy touch. The tremendous sound and projection of these ukes make them great for performing."

We set up each instrument to ensure you get the absolute best for your money! This includes saddle and nut heights, fretwork and intonation checks, and a thorough inspection for cosmetic flaws. 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. However, if you live in a cold or dry climate please upgrade to the oasis humidifier.

Options

When you buy this ukulele you can get a gig bag or canvas covered hard case at an additional discount.  (Not required but suggested.) The gig bag and canvas covered hard case can be seen in our cases category under the accessories tab at the top of this page. Other cases can also be chosen there. 

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

We can install the MiSi with its rechargeable preamp or the new L.R. Baggs 5.0 ukulele pickup. Also 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.

Extra Options

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.

No extra charge for Low G.

Aloha!
