Kala KA-STG Solid Spruce Top Tenor Gloss
- Product Review (submitted on July 15, 2015):
- I've been a drummer for a very long time and understand that, when it comes to instruments, you get what you pay for. I got a cheap ukulele for free about a month before I ordered my Kala spruce top tenor. It was terrible - again you get what you pay for. I am extremely happy with my Kala. It is a beautiful instrument in appearance as well as sound. I ordered a hard case with it and recommend everyone investing in anything but a cheap instrument do the same. Having a good sounding instrument is a boon to practicing. I rarely miss a day's practice and once I begin, I'm able to focus and spend some serious quality time playing because the sound is so enjoyable. So far, I'm having difficulty getting volume out of the uke while just strumming with my fingers, but if I use a pick the volume picks up significantly. If I do any finger picking the volume drops back down. At this I think it's probably my technique that is lacking rather than there being some shortcoming in the instrument. In summary, it is a beautiful instrument and I can recommend it wholeheartedly. One more thought, consider having it delivered to the local FedEx office rather than your home address - you have to personally sign for the package, so unless you are absolutely sure that you will be at home when the truck shows up you will have to go to their office anyway - and then your uke will have spent the day travelling around in the back of a hot truck.
