Kala Mahogany Soprano Ukulele w/binding

The Kala KA-S Ukulele (with binding, as shown here), is a decent starter ukulele for the young and young at heart. It is a decent starter ukulele if you want to learn and don't want to break the piggy bank. This is a standard (soprano) size ukulele with little frills. However, it does not have the toy ukulele look or sound, and the binding around the body adds a bit of class to its appearance. It has geared tuners, not friction pegs. This makes tuning the ukulele a tad easier.

There is also a version without the binding, but for the same price Kala Mahogany Soprano Ukulele with No Binding.

Though the name implies it is made of mahogany, it is actually made of laminate nato, which is referred to as "eastern mahogany" and is often used in inexpensive guitars and ukuleles. However, don't let the make fool you... this baby sounds impressive. I still play with a KA-S every now and then, and I use it as my beater uke. It's not solid wood, and therefore does not have the solid wood sound. But it is still an impressive little instrument. I generally do not like to purchase music instruments online, but I would make an exception with these.

Kala production models tend to already have decent action (not too high or low), though some might complain the action is a bit high. It is easy enough to sand the saddle down to your preference. The nut is glued, but can come off with a bit of effort.

I had a cheap ukulele. I purchased some books to start playing. The cheap one would not tune to the proper notes. I purchased the Kala Mahogany Sorprano Ukulele with hopes it would be better than the one I had. To my surprise the Kala far exceeded my expectations. The quality is outstanding for the price. I tuned it in less than 5 minutes and now I am on my way.Kala Mahogany Soprano Ukulele w/binding

Just got this baby a couple of days ago and haven't stopped playing since. It stays in tune and has a nice rich tone. I tried comparing it to my friend's Lanikai, and Kala overexceeds all aspects of the Lanikai. Rich tone, stays in tune, and overall beautiful. All this for a good price!

I keep seeing comments that this is a fantastic beginner uke. That is rubbish. This is a fantastic ukulele regardless of skill level. What do you want before it is no longer a beginners instrument? It has a rosewood fretboard, nickel frets, geared tuners, great action, great sound, comes with quality strings. So what's left? I understand that it doesn't have a solid wood body but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. There are people like me that don't want to concern themselves with whether or not the humidity in the corner of the bedroom is going to warp the body of our favorite ukulele. I don't have to worry so much about humidity with this ukulele.

I have three ukuleles now. One is an Oscar Schmidt OU3 concert and the other is a mango Fluke. The fluke is much deeper and louder. This Kala ukulele manages to remain delicate and still project it's sound well. It's hard to tell you what I appreciate about this ukulele without bringing emotion into it. But I'm going to try to explain.

If I were knocking around with a friend who had an acoustic guitar then I would grab my Fluke. If I were singing with a group of kids I would grab my Fluke. It's loud, fun, and looks cool.

If I were posing for a picture I would grab my Oscar Schmidt because it looks beautiful. That's mostly what it's good for. Nothing wrong with that. It really is a pretty concert ukulele.

However, if i'm going to sit in the front lawn by myself under the moonlight and pitch a ballad out there this Kala is the ukulele I'm taking. If I'm singing to my wife, this Kala is the ukulele I'm using. Do you know what that means? It means that this ukulele is special.

Had a cheap ukulele but didn't realize how cheap until I received this KA-S with Aquila white strings, not the black ones as described. Great tuners/gears, you can really fine tune this instrument. Glad I bought the Korg TM-40 tuner as well, makes tuning a no brainer. The notes sound great and more similar to ukulele recordings I've listened to.

I went to a local guitar store to get a case and looked at other ukulele's that were more expensive. I can't justify purchasing a ukulele over $100 as the craftsmanship looked (to my novice eyes) on par with the more expensive ones so I am satisfied with this purchase for now...

My son loves his ukelele and, being a musician, was pleased with the quality of it. It's great for a beginner, like he is, but not to "toyish." I found the reviews accurate and helpful on this.

I purchased my ukulele in Honolulu last fall. What a fun intrument to learn and play with quick success. There were other models and makes that were more expensive, but for a little money- it is a great little instrument with rich tones. Holds tune very well, beautiful looking and great sounding. Get one of your own!
