This is the Elite Series 1 Gloss soprano made in Petaluma, California. The sound is full and warm with that punchy vintage styled voicing, but a little more clarity and sustain when compared to most vintage sopranos. The feel is great with the wider 1.5" nut width giving a little more room for chording which makes it a great soprano for adults sized hands.
This solid Hawaiian koa is shown off beautifully but their gloss finish, the same UV finish that other companies like Kanile'a or Taylor Guitars uses. It's a smooth glassy perfect finish. Kala keeps the neck satin for smooth sliding and comfort which we really like.

This ukulele is considerably more expensive than any of Kala's imports but it's still a great value because of its musical quality and the craftsmanship put into it.
