Kala Koa Series Tenor, a great Ukulele

26.01.2016
Kala Koa Series Tenor ukulele is an amazing Ukulele at the price point. Mid-High range Kala ukuleles are always at a top quality. This ukulele is perfect for someone looking to upgrade or take the Ukulele seriously. It doesn't have a built in pickup, but Ukuleles with pickups at this price point don't have nice electronics, so I will simply mic it up at performances. I am very happy with this Ukulele and would recommend to any potential buyer, it's a very pretty ukulele.

Pros:
- Rich warm sound with Koa top back and sides
- Great feeling Mahogany neck with 20 Nickel silver frets, and a finished Rosewood fret board
- Gold Grover open gear tuners are very stable and great for reaching a better tuning.
- Graphtech Nubone saddle and nut are great.
- Daddario strings with metal C sound great.

Cons:
- Doesn't come with case
- Natural Gloss finish perhaps a little thick taking some treble from the sound.

Beautiful looking and well sounding Uke at a fair price

Q.S., 07.09.2018
For every player starting out with an entry level Uke or looking to add a reasonably priced tenor to their collection I can certainly recommend the Kala Koa Gloss.

Pros:
- Really stunning looks
- Use of koa bring it into the traditional category and gives it a less mainstream acoustic guitar look like spruce or mahogany Ukes.
- Good sound, plenty of projection. A full sounding tenor that keeps a good balance between a typical Uke sound and a more volumous/guitar-like sound.
- High quality strings
- Great addition if you already have a concert or soprano and want to achieve a different sound for different genres.

Cons:
- Build quality is good, but you will see some small imperfections at ¤270 it is fine at is full listing price of $400 I would find it more annoying, but nothing to worry about.
- Does not come with a small gig bag.
- Gloss on the neck makes it slide a bit less good
