With its solid spruce top — a staple of quality acoustic instruments everywhere — and warm, richly figured ebony laminate back and sides, this Kala ukulele is primed to inspire the heart of any longtime acoustic-music maker. The Kala Solid Spruce Top Striped Ebony concert ukulele is comfortable to play and exquisitely rich in tone thanks to its quality tonewoods and Graph Tech NuBone nut and saddle. A host of professional appointments, which include maple body binding and open-gear tuners, gives this uke a put-together look that will cause your fans to perk up and take notice. Players who are seeking a great price on a professional-grade instrument will delight in the Kala Solid Spruce Top Striped Ebony concert ukulele from Sweetwater.
The concert ukulele — one size larger than the original soprano — was introduced in the 1920s as an “enhanced” soprano, sporting a louder, deeper tone with more body and richness. You’ll find — much to your delight — that the Solid Spruce Top Striped Ebony concert uke gives you impressive volume for its diminutive size, along with deliciously warm and clear ukulele tone.
Kala lives and breathes ukuleles — ukes and uke-style instruments are all they make, and they make them exceedingly well. In fact, Kala is in no small part responsible for the strong resurgence of interest in the uke we’ve seen since the mid-1990s. They design and manufacture over 120 different models made from a variety of woods, including lacewood, koa, mango, mahogany, flame/spalted maple, bocote, acacia, and the classic spruce top/rosewood back and sides combo.
