Wolf Gang, 20.04.2016
Zunächst ein paar Korrekturen/Ergänzungen der Artikelbeschreibung:
(a) Die Ukulele ist durch die große Kopfplatte länger als angegeben, nämlich 69cm (aufpassen beim Taschen- bzw Kofferkauf)
(b) Aufgezogen sind ab Werk Aquila 19U Saiten (mit einer roten low-G), gestimmt in gG-cC-ee-aa (g4-g3-c5-c4-e4-e4-a4-a4)
(c) wie bei diesem Preis zu erwarten, ist kein massives Koa verbaut, sondern "nur" Laminat (äußere Schicht ist Koa, zu den anderen Schichten habe ich keine Info)

Optik:
Bis auf zwei kleinere Unregelmäßigkeiten an der Innenkante des Schalllochs ist die Hochglanzlackierung makellos; innen wurde ebenfalls bis auf eine kleine Stelle sauber gearbeitet. Insgesamt sieht sie einfach gut aus, je nach Licht wirkt das Koa geradezu dreidimensional. Das Griffbrett wirkt durch die helle Einfassungen schmaler, als es tatsächlich ist (~35mm am Sattel).

Haptik:
Alles glatt und angenehm, ein echter Handschmeichler. Die Saitenlage ist sensationell niedrig (2mm im 12. Bund). Trotz der relativ harten Aquila Saiten angenehm zu spielen - wenn auch der Platz naturgemäß sehr begrenzt ist. 4 Saitenpaare auf 35mm Halsbreite erfordern etwas mehr Präzision beim Greifen als 4 einfache Saiten. Die Mechaniken machen bei mir keine Probleme und halten die Stimmung wie erwartet.

Sound:
Wenn man nur 4-saitige Ukulelen gewohnt ist eine echte Überraschung, durch die zwei zusätzlichen Töne (tiefes G, hohes C) klingt sie voller als nur 2x 4 Saiten und macht einfach Spaß. Obwohl Aquila einen ziemlich "harten" Klang haben, ist der Sound in allen Lagen insgesamt ausgewogen und schön klar (wenn man sauber greift). Fluorocarbonsaiten (bspw. Living Water Strings) sind hier sicherlich eine lohnenswerte Alternative für einen etwas weniger spitzen Sound.
Die Tatsache, dass der Korpus nicht aus Massivholz ist, tut dem Klang keinen Abbruch - ich habe allerdings keinen direkten Vergleich und bin mit dem Klang einfach so schon zufrieden.

Fazit:
Wie bei Kala üblich bekommt man für verhältnismäßig kleines Geld ein sehr ordentliches Instrument. Luft nach oben ist immer, hat aber naturgemäß auch ihren Preis.

Die 8 Mechaniken erfreuen mit einer ungeheuren Individualität.
Und zwar jede einzelne!
Die sind wirklich sehr schlecht und haben alle 8 unterschiedlich Spiel.
Drum gibts bei Features nur 1 Stern.

Sound ist Spitze.
Stimmung hält lange.
Mit der Ukulele spielen ist wunderbar.
