Description

Details

The baritone ukulele is played like any other ukulele. But it doesn't sound like the other's. The deep resonance and sustain are a treat to the ears. Especially with a high quality instrument. This solid spruce top baritone from Kala has a wonderful sound with quality construction and still won't break the bank. We have carried this model for years and the tone has never been more clear and projecting than it is now with its new gloss finish.

Spruce gives more volume and clarity and you can really hear that on this model. The great thing about a solid wood top is that it gets better sounding with time and play. Within even the first year you will have a noticeable gain in warmth and volume. 

The baritone has been gaining popularity because you can get the richer tones of a guitar in a comfortable compact size. Any ukulele or guitar player will automatically be right at home. 

The baritone ukulele is the same tuning as the high four strings on a guitar. A 4th lower than a regular ukulele, but the shapes are all the same. The main reason you would want a baritone ukulele is because it sounds so dang good. It is significantly smaller than a guitar but still gives you a similar depth and color. The standard G C E A just doesn't do this. Both G C E A and D G B E are the same intervals but with a different key and tension. The same shapes inspire different composition. It is fun to have both a regular ukulele and a baritone ukulele. Both are equally -- and uniquely -- ukulele. :)

We always include a humidifier with solid-wood instruments, including solid top ones like this. Upgrade if you are in a cold or dry climate.

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.

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

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Humistat Model 1 included humidifier for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your house. For more info refer to the ukulele care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

Put a note in the Special Instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything. 

After adding this instrument to your cart, you can still create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

Under the Accessories tab you can also customize this instrument by adding strap button(s) or your choice of pickup for plugging in. 

Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your cart reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free UPS 2 day shipping. Two days is the time in transit, your instrument will first go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money.

Nice & Bright
This ukulele is one of my favorites to play. It has a brighter tone than any of the mahoganies or other solid bodies. The spruce really gives it a unique sound. The look and style is also classy and kind of dressed up with the light wood. It's a steal in terms of quality and affordability. And this dealer makes them sing! I will only buy online from them. Superior product tweaking, customer care and service.
