The best instrument you will ever own!
This is my first uke, I've had it for a year now and I still can't put it down. I didn't get a chance to get mine from the ukulele site since they were sold out when I was looking. I found mine on ebay in an "opened box" for $250. I didn't get the HMS set-up I would have liked to get but I paid less. So I can't comment on the set-up but... coming from playing guitar I never knew what I was missing till I got this uke. The wood and inlays are not only beautiful and eye-catching they also allow the uke to have a very nice dynamic range from soft finger picking to hard and fast strumming. I really like layering of the wood you can see in the angled cut of the slotted head stock, very nice touch. If you want a to learn uke and look/sound good while doing it this is the uke for you. I like and play this more than I do my guitars now. It's so comfortable and easy to sit and the couch and pick away quietly while everything in the house is going on.

Would buy again in a heartbeat.
Hands down the quality, tone and playability exceeded ukuleles I compared it to that we're 3 or more times the cost of the Kala.

Good uke, but not holding up to time
This is a great sounding and looking ukulele, however mine is not holding up. I've had it about 4 years and the bridge is lifting, the saddle moves in the bridge slot and one of the tuner peg heads is loose and rattles. It still sounds good, but I imagine I only have a couple years before I need to put some serious money into it or buy something else. I have an similarly aged mahogany PONO that has had no issues. I also prefer the thicker neck and resulting weight distribution of the PONO.

Good Looks, Great Vibes
It looks awesome, seriously not a single cosmetic flaw and the wood grain is just great. Loved the tone, definitely better at making softer music sound great compared to my last uke!

Sounds and looks amazing.
This ukulele sounds rich and full, and also has a great dynamic range. You can play from sweet and quiet tones to loud, barking sounds.
It looks beautiful. The acacia wood is a combination of brown and dark-gold color that creates amazing looking patterns, The Grover tuners are very high quality and holds the tone very well. The intonation is spot on.
Amazing instrument overall, especially for the price. And with the HMS's set-up. This ukulele truly feels like a high-end professional instrument.

very mellow tone
i bought my Kala ASAC TE used in the UK. It's the same model but has the Shadow pickup and preamp factory fitted and costs around £80 more. Mine also came witha TGI ABS hard case. All for under £250 and the cases cost over £50 so very pleased with the price. A couple of members of my Uke club already had this model so I knew they were good. Mine is beautifully made and flawlessly finished. The only negative is that the strap button/jack socket is 1/4 inch off centre. The person who fitted it must have had his eyes closed! I also own 2 fairly new made in Mexico Martins a S1 and C1K. Both weigh considerably less than the Kala and are louder with more treble. However the Kala is mellow and sweet where the Martins are a little brash. I love my Martins and have nothing but praise for them even though they're not USA made. But of course neither is the Kala its Chinese. There is this idea that USA made ukes are the best. Well the Chinese have been making instruments for centuries so if you buy a Chinese uke at this price you can expect it to be just as well made as a USA uke costing much more
Due to wage costs. My Kala is beautifully set up now and a pleasure to play. The slot head looks amazing with the way it's veneered and routed to show the different coloured woods. The tuners are Grovers. As good as any. My Martins have Grovers too. The neck is beautifully finished and the frets perfect as far as I can tell. No sharp edges or high spots. It plays in tune as far up the neck as I ever venture. Ok it's not loud but it is just so so sweetly voiced that you forgive that. Plus I can always plug mine in if I want loud! Try before you buy as with anything. I'm very pleased with mine.
