Beautiful wood and impeccable build quality from the luthiers at Kala! Sound is special making this a really special Uke.
No volume control?
This is my second Kala Uke. I love Korina tonewood so I went all-in on this lovely instrument. My acoustic tenor sounds rich compared to this, but I expected that because of the thin body. What I didn’t expect was the lack of a volume control. Any acoustic electric guitar I have at least has a volume control, and a tone control is a plus. This could get sketchy onstage with feedback. I still love it, but I’m hoping for a retrofit.

We appreciate the purchase and feedback, John!
Part of what make the Revelator special is its incredibly slim design (with astounding acoustic output) and very simple EQ. While we understand the desire, and we researched the feasibility - adding a volume pot (or any other control) would alter the unique acoustic structure of the instrument and it may affect the sound or construction - so we had to forgo the option.
We hope you understand and continue to enjoy the instrument. Perhaps a volume pedal might be a solution for your rig?
