Kala quality, price / performance is right

Wolf Gang, 20.04.2016
First a few corrections / additions to the article description:
(A) The ukulele is longer than indicated by the large head plate, namely 69cm (be careful when buying bags or luggage)
(B) are drawn from the factory Aquila 19U strings (with a red low-G) tuned in gG-cC-ee-aa (g4-g3-c5-c4-e4-e4-a4-a4)
(C) as expected at this price, no massive Koa is used, but "only" laminate (outer layer is Koa, to the other layers I have no info)

Optics:
Apart from two minor irregularities on the inner edge of the sound hole, the high-gloss finish is immaculate; Inside was also worked clean except for a small place. Overall, it just looks good, depending on the light, the Koa looks almost three-dimensional. The fingerboard is narrower than the actual one (~ 35mm at the saddle).

Haptics:
Everything is smooth and pleasant, a real flatter. The strings are sensationally low (2mm in the 12th fret). Despite the relatively hard Aquila strings pleasant to play - although the course is of course very limited. 4 string pairs on 35mm neck width require slightly more precision when gripping than 4 simple strings. The mechanics do not make any problems with me and keep the mood as expected.

Sound:
If you are only accustomed to 4-string ukuleles is a real surprise, with the two additional notes (low G, high C) it sounds fuller than just 2x 4 strings and just fun. Although Aquila has a rather "hard" sound, the sound is balanced in all positions and beautifully clear (if one grips cleanly). Fluorocarbonsites (eg living water strings) are certainly a worthwhile alternative for a slightly less pointed sound.
The fact that the body is not made of solid wood does not break the sound - but I do not have a direct comparison and I am so satisfied with the sound.

Conclusion:
As usual with Kala you get for a relatively small money a very neat instrument. Air to the top is always, but naturally also has its price.

Meschaniken = dirt from hell

27.10.2015
The 8 mechanics enjoy a tremendous individuality.
And every single one!
Those are really very bad and have all 8 different game.
Therefore, for features only 1 star.

Sound is top.
Mood keeps long.
Playing with the ukulele is wonderful.
