Bamboo is the most eco-friendly wood choice for a ukulele. Highly renewable, Bamboo regenerates quickly without being replanted. The many-layered, straight grain of the wood gives this collection a natural, earthy look. Bamboo provides a bright tone with great volume, harmonics, projection and sustain. The strength of bamboo makes for an extremely durable and resilient ukulele. Available in soprano, concert, and tenor models.

Solid Bamboo Wow

I bought this Uke from Amazon. So I should probably be spanked. Anyway, I love this Ukulele. The Response and sound are crisp and clear. I would recommend low G number 4 string.

Kala Bamboo

I couldn’t find a bamboo to play but I could listen to a couple of reviews. I also called my friend Jason at Lahaina Music and ask his thoughts. So I bought the bamboo. It looks great has a good sound. I prefer a low G so I changed out the strings to the Aquila red series low G, and it sounds great. I now have 4 Kala Uku s and they are all awesome.

Bamboo tenor -- spectacular!

I bought this uke hoping to encourage the use of materials other than rare tropical woods for instrument construction, but not expecting much in the way of tone. Wow, was I surprised at how very nice this all-bamboo tenor sounds! Strung with Aquila Red strings, it has both depth and sweetness, the equal of my solid-mahogany tenor. Build quality is excellent -- just a minor setup was required to make it very playable. Get one!

Love a Slot Head

Great Uke. You can’t go wrong with Kala brand. I’ve owned over 15 Kala’s over the years and they are always good straight out of the box. I love the slot head on this. I’m somewhat a slot head fan. This uke is very good.

Interesting appearance, nice tone quality

The complete bamboo ukulele has a very interesting appearance. It's as if it "has no clothes". Ha, Ha. It has a fine bright tone. I like the slotted tuners. The delivery of this instrument was very fast. I am pleased to have this uke in my collection of ukuleles. I kind of wish that when a person orders a tenor ukulele, the supplier would include a low G string so the purchaser could make the choice between the standard G string or a low G string. I change this to the low G but had to take from a whole pack of tenor uke strings I had on hand.
