Limited Run!! Kala KA-ASAC-T6 All Solid Acacia Tenor 6 string
With the all solid acacia series Kala has achieved a refined, yet natural look and sound. Professional construction and tasteful design. Here is an excerpt from one of the blogs that Aaron wrote for our Blog -
"The 6 string ukulele, like the 8 string has doubled strings. In contrast to the 8, however, the 6 string has only the 1st (A) and 3rd(C) strings doubled. The biggest difference between the 8 string and the 6 string is that more often than not, the 6 string has a lower octave A rather than the unison A found on the 8 string. This gives the 6 string a distinctly different voice than both the 8 and 4 string ukuleles. I have found this voicing to lend itself well to jamming with a guitar player due to the difference of the “sweet spot”. The “sweet spot” occurs when contrasting frequencies blend together to create a harmonically rich, but not cluttered sound."
That is the case with this beautiful uke. It has an octave A. Everything is played the same as a regular ukulele, but the octave high on the C gives a sweet chiming super high tone and then you have a octave lower a for a fat leading tone. These are really fun and I suspect they will get much more popular in the next few years as people discover how fun it is and how it works for songwriting or anything. The doubled strings help your strumming hand glide back and forth without snagging a string, as is easy to do on a 4 stringer!
