Awesome uke at a reasonable price

I've been playing ukulele for over 15 years and have played in various cafes and music festivals, and kala ukes have always been my go to for instrument of choice! Perfect sound, reliable electronics, and aesthetically pleasing! Definitely happy to add another to my collection!

Perfect

Everything is great with this uke. Of course, he is a bit tall, but that's really cool, and you can easily do any chords you want. Moreover, the EQ in the uke is really useful to tune the uke whenever I want. The sound is great. Perfect.

My new Uke KA-EBY-TE

My first uke was a Kala travel uke, which is very good. However, I was looking for electronics and a full-depth body in a tenor. I was a professional guitarist in the past. I got tired of trying to talk fast enough to get my dreadnought onto an airplane. I was on the big island, so I bought my first uke, a Kala KA-GATU-T, a golden acacia travel uke. Of course I've seen plenty of ebony on fingerboards and bridges, but I have never seen it used as a tonewood. Well, the ebony on the KA-EBY-TE looked very pretty, and the price was good, so I took a chance and bought it on line. One thing that none of the reviews or ads said is that the electrics have a built in tuner, which works quite well. The sound is a little deeper than Acacia, and very well balanced. When plugged in, the sound from the electrics is shockingly close to the acoustic sound. It came with only one strap button, at the bottom. I added one on the heel. I prefer to play with a strap, and there is nothing more annoying than a neck strap! Workmanship and fit and finish are both excellent. They say this line is for beginner to intermediate players. Well I'm a pro, and this little axe works for me. In it's price range, I believe there isn't a better uke on the planet. Both of my Kala ukes were made in China, not Hawaii, and not in the USA, and they are the only instruments I've ever played that were made in China that didn't suck, which leads me to believe that the Kala people are very much on top of…
