Beautiful, resonant sound with just the right amount of brightness
After spending an hour or two in the ukulele store strumming on different ukes, I kept coming back to the Kala KA-SMHC because of its rich, resonant sound, mixed with some of the brightness I really like in a ukulele. Beautiful sound, nice-looking and light weight instrument. Easy to play, and the Nylgut strings feel good to the fingers. All in all, I'm thoroughly satisfied with this sweet little uke.

Great value
I purchased this uke with the misi accoustic trio installed. I have had it for a few months, and I love it. The sound is consistent when I am plugged in and when I am not. The setup of the instrument was perfect. No buzz and all frets are smooth. The price with hard case and pickup installation was less than my Martin soprano. The tone and quality is equal to that instrument.

Starter uke for my daughter in grade school
My daughter's elementary school teaches ukulele to all the kids (she started around 7 yrs old in 2011). The recommended uke from the teacher is a Kala KA-C, setup with Low-G. I wanted to get her something with HMS's well regarded setup. As luck would have it, the KA-C was in short supply that year in the fall so I moved up to the solid wood model. There is just a tiny bit more ornamentation on the KA-SMHC which my daughter appreciates as it sets her uke apart, but not *too much* apart from the other kids.

The uke is very resonant and ringing despite being a concert size and is well suited for her size (but as an adult male I have no trouble playing it as well). The intonation is spot on and with HMS's setup, there is no buzz anywhere on the fret board. The frets are all nicely finished with no burrs or rough spots. Tuning is accurate and easy, but lacks the precision feel of a high-end K-brand uke (but that's no surprise considering that this is a fifth of the price). My daughter is in her second year of using this uke and it is still perfect.

Great starter concert uke!
This was my first ukulele and while I did not know what size would work for me I did have a guitar background and knew that a solid uke would be of higher quality than a laminate wood build. This uke sounds great for the price and grew my love for the instrument. I bought a kamaka hf-3 within a couple of years. I still love my Kala and bring it with me on my travels.

Good entry to solid
Good entry to the solid wood, plays good, sounds bright. Little on the boring side if if want a really unique look, keep looking.
