Kala has established their brand as the best selling ukulele company on the planet for a reason. Extremely good quality relative to price, attention to detail, quality tone, and a wide product offering has set them apart from all other brands.
The KA-S Mahogany Soprano ukulele from Kala combines pleasant highs with warm lows, creating an overall richness in sound. Using a satin finished mahogany body, back, and sides, with a white binding accent on the top and back, the KA-S is our favorite soprano sized uke. They are small, easy to transport, and wonderful to play. We find that the quality of die-cast tuners are both easy to use and will stay in tune for longer periods of time. One caveat here is that when first purchased, all nylon string instruments take a lot of time initially to stretch out the strings for them to hold tune. This is true with all Kala models that use high-quality Aquila strings. While the Aquila strings sound wonderful, they do take a while to break in. Take your time tuning and stretching your strings initially and you will be richly rewarded in quality of tone.
Something very unique is happening in the ukulele world. Suddenly, you are hearing them everywhere. Whether it be Train, Eddie Vedder, Zooey Deschanel, Dent May, or a host of other artists using them in recent recordings, the uke has made a comeback and taken the music industry by storm. You hear them in recordings, commercials, late night t.v., and they are super hip when it comes to reality television shows like Idol, especially during the auditions. Get on board and begin your musical journey with this wonderfully fun and easy to play musical instrument. You’ll love it. We do!
