I bought a Kala pineapple uke to take with me to Iraq in 2009. That poor little uke took quite a beating, and still has the aquila strings(low G tuning) I put on it before I left the states. When I got back, I recommended Kalas to a local music store, and much to my suprise, they listened.

I got to strum the KA-CEM, and they even put a low G string on it for me. I couldn't resist, I had to buy it. Now it sits next to my bed and I play it a bit before I go to sleep.

I did buy a strap and poly foam case for it. I highly recommend ditching the high G re-entrant string for a low G, it gives the Uke a deeper, richer, sound when strumming chords, and a larger range when you want to do melodies.

About the poly foam case, I had my pineapple uke in one and made the mistake of putting it in my duffle bag for the trip to iraq. When I pulled it out of the bag, the case was badly warped, I just KNEW the uke was broken. Much to my amazement, the uke was in perfect shape. I highly recommend the poly foam cases.

I am a BIG fan of KALA and couldn't wait to (literally) get my hands on this Concert Ukulele. I was a little nervous buying an instrument on-line and having not strummed it in person but I took the chance anyway. I am so glad I did! This is one of the best Uke's I own and it sounds and feels and plays GREAT! Super Fantastic! The packaging was great and it took hardly any time to get my front door. I would strongly suggest this ukulele to any musician, professional or just starting out. This is one of those uke's you could own for life and it would still sound and play great over the years!

I bought my KA-CEM several months ago and I am still really happy with it. It plays easily and fits my hands better than a soprano, (much less the cheap souvenir uke I started with.) I love the warm look of the mahogany and the nice rich sound I get. Amazon has it for $10 less than my local guitar store. A really good buy. A very satisfying instrument. Aloha!

It is a beautiful ukulele with the stripes in the natural wood grain. However there was a small amount of buzzing due to a loose saddle. I was able to fix the buzzing by anchoring the saddle in the bridge a little tighter.

As per instructions on the shipping label, I contacted Kala Brand directly when I saw several irregularities on the KA-CEM I received last week. Unlike the photos on Kala's website and the seller's website, my uke has a painted black stripe down the center of the back; I could see it was paint and not a strip of joint binding because it's not straight-edge true (but very slightly wavering) and because tiny bits of paint seepage flashing are visible upon very close inspection of the edges of the stripe. Also, the top end of the stripe was slightly off-center when compared with the bottom of the neck heel. In addition, there's a nearly 2-inch-long mark (it looks like a misplaced pencil scribing line) visible on the sound board next/parallel to the right edge of the fretboard.

Indicating that the stripe was not applied to hide any back joint blemish, a Kala rep told me that all KA-CEMs currently have the black stripe down the back (which was applied in the latest production run for some unspecified reason). But he agreed that the scribing-like mark on the sound board was an issue. He said the photos I sent to Kala would be used "for reference in pin-pointing cosmetic flaws with our factories."

I'm still deciding whether to use my 30-day return privileges with the seller. The flip-side is the uke otherwise looks nice, plays well, and sounds good. (The black strips around the outer edges of the uke's top and bottom appear to be real binding strips, not paint.)

UPDATE (10/13): I should have returned this when I had the chance; instead, I've retired it to its box and only play the far superior Oscar Schmidt I subsequently bought (the OU6). By comparison, the Kala sounds thin and plinky.
