Nice instrument that seems solid

Fabrix, 14.05.2017
Well, it's Kala so it's generally well done and solid, and I needed a nice instrument that can hold up during many trips (hence the search for the solid wood table, with the rest in laminate) ... But the details that are pretty do not always justify the price a little too high (and sillets are synthetic, it's really a shame ...). The cedar table has a nice resonance and a very present sound, rather clear but also sweet to the ear, which suits me since I do a lot of fingerpicking and I like a good definition of sound when strumming agreements too; but I will probably hack bone carnations or even ivory to increase the support and embellish the sound: I already did that on a Kala electro concert (CGE) and it worked really well, the effort is well worth it the candle ! The instrument is nice, no more, it really reminds a classical guitar and is quite "elegant" in its appearance. I really like the red padouk which redraws all the contours, and as I put a serious ground in the series Red d'Aquila, the eye is there ...;) But hey, to see for the intonation in time: for now the instrument is still finding a balance after only a few days of play, and it will probably be necessary to give a few lime strokes at the nut to better adjust the treble neck .. The handle, precisely, slides well, and the action is rather low so it's easy to play but I personally would like it to be just a bit further, to have a little more projection of the sound but also to not risk bzzzzzzz (the setup is still at the limit). The case is well, well done and seems to be super well protect his baby because it is rigid, but I would say it will still treat with some respect at the zipper ... The outer bag can contain an ipad, which is great, but not A4 scores, and the little drawer inside is quite spacious (I put the strap and the tuner). In short, it's a pretty well balanced instrument and with its case as a bonus it can make a nice gift to pass in the category "intermediary", but small adjustments of violin (it is unfortunate that Thomann does not offer ) will really make a difference.

Instrument

Wolfgang9320, 14.07.2015
I play guitar and afterwards there the desire to possess new instruments slowly, I thought I try it times with a ukulele. The result was that after a week I already had the second :-( Ok, here, however, there is the fixed intent only to buy one each of the different sizes and as a concert I chose this Kala.
So far there was no evaluation, but you can find on some Ukulele sides reviews and videos, which had me then sufficiently convinced. In short: the Uke convinces both optically, with a few minor smears from the processing and the sound is as desired bright and loud. Does not sound fundamentally different from my mahogany-soprano, which is perhaps not so positive for me, but if someone intends to buy only one Uke and because of the playability would rather have a concert, but like the soprano sound, Then he / she can strike my mind without hesitation here, even if the wooden comb might not be as common as mahogany.

If I make new strings on it, I'll look because of the strings, which could be _etwas_ flatter. But after the safe from instrument to instrument is different, is for a review I think not relevant. The painting is well executed but not outstanding. The sound hole could be polished (or at all) polished and also painted. You may already see, then you look for the hair in the soup. What I would like to write is that the Grover mechanics are very fine adjustable, all go evenly and I also after hours of continuous playing does not have to resign. I would buy it again at any time and recommend it to a friend.
