I spent a solid month researching ukuleles before I ultimately decided on this one. It looks so good with its matte finish and choice of materials. It doesn't feel cheap, but very light and solid and well balanced to boot. I never feel like I'm having to hold it up or adjust its position in my hands. The fret board is comfortable to play on, and I'm so thankful that Kala filed down the edges of the frets, which is something that isn't found in the product description (for any uke, for that matter).
- Keep the box! It's minimal packaging makes for a perfect temporary case while you find the perfect gig bag for your new best friend.
- Get some felt picks. They are the perfect tool for showing off the beautiful tone while keeping the sound consistent. It's also way easier to get an amazing sound than when I tried with my fingers.
If you're considering other models, trust that this is the one you want. In this price range, you won't get the same tonal quality and perfectly executed features that this uke has.
As far as criticisms go, my only gripe is very small—about .2mm small, to be precise. The strings are that much too high at the nut for my liking, which leads to pitch issues with barred cords played on the first two frets. To play a Gb/F#M cord requires way too much pressure to execute well and in tune. It's a simple fix if you have the right tools, but unfortunately I'll have to take it to a luthier to get it right where I want it.
Despite that, I'm beyond thrilled with my purchase. If you have any questions I will be in my room strumming til the sun comes out.
Aquila nylgut strings
Walnut as an exotic wood choice
Excellent tone and sustain
Balanced center of gravity at base of neck
The fret edges are slightly sharp, but this is likely to lessen as it is played
I’ve been playing a soprano uke for years and was so excited to get a Tenor. My budget was $200 and I really trust the Kala name bc I’ve played them at Guitar Center before. But this particular Uke had a bad buzz. It wasn’t from a loose nut, no loose bridge, the action was fine, nothing loose, but there was a very bad buzzz on the C string.
I even re-strung the string, and still! I know a uke master could probably find it, but since amazon is nice about returns, I got my money back.
I blame the seller Everyday Merchant! They buy defective things like this and try to sell them on amazon! I mean they have nothing to lose! I don’t blame Kala.

After reading some reviews, I settled on this beauty, and I’m positive I made the right choice.
The first thing I noticed was the the construction quality. It really is a good looking ukulele, and one that’s built to last.
When I tuned up and started to play, I felt an immediate difference to my other ukes. The action is just about perfect out of the box, and it feels like a real joy to play.
I noticed a huge step up in terms of tone and sustain, and for not that much more money. If you’re considering a ukulele in the £100-ish range, I’d encourage you to consider spending a little more for one of these.
For the price, it’s really difficult to imagine a better purchase.
