Just What I Wanted, 100% satisfied
I'm a beginner and have been playing a ukulele about 2 months now. I ordered this uke (with a low G string) last week and it arrived today. It came by Fedex and was very well packaged and in perfect condition. I let it adjust to my home's temperature and humidity for about an hour and then tuned it and started playing. It has a very rich and full sound with a long sustain. My other uke is a tenor (by another company) with a high G string. The low G tuning of this Kala gives a very different sound to the songs I play, which is just what I was hoping for. The body of the Kala is about 10mm deeper than my other uke, which probably explains the impressive sound and sustain. I'm very pleased with the quality of the workmanship of the Kala, its action, and playability. I played it for several hours and didn't want to stop because I was enjoying it so much. This is a great sounding uke at a very reasonable price. I'm also glad I bought it directly from Kala because of the great assistance I got from the rep I talked to on the phone before the purchase and the pre-shipping inspection Kala gave the uke.
P.S. I also bought a case which looks very rugged and should protect the uke quite well when I travel with it. Thanks Kala!
