I watched a bunch of videos on baritone ukuleles from many different brands. There is one video in particular that a gentleman reviewed 18 tenor/baritone ukuleles. The KA-BG was one of, if not, the best sounding of them all. I decided, based on that video, to purchase one. I love it!! The tone is great, it has a deep guitar like sound. I truly enjoy playing my KA-BG. I highly recommend this instrument to anyone. Tons of fun!!!
