This is the Elite Series 1 Koa 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.

This solid Hawaiian koa is very clean satin lacquer finish, it's smooth and comfortable with a nice woody look.

Pics and video show the one and only available now to you (if it says "In Stock"). 

Our sound samples are recorded for true reference and have no alteration or enhancement. Use quality playback for the most accurate listening.

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.

We recently did a factory tour video at Kala in Petaluma. Check it out and get to know the people making these ukes.

Custom Kala Elite gig case and Music Nomad Humilele Humidifier included.

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.

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 FedEX 2 day shipping. Two days is the time in transit.
