Kala Acacia KA-ASAC-C Concert Ukulele

I think Kala have got a lot of things right with their acacia range of ukes. They're obviously going after a more serious ukulele player but they're keeping it affordable by using Acacia wood (a close relation of koa and much cheaper) and manufacturing it in China.

Definitely worth checking these out if you're in the market for a quality uke but don't have a massive budget.

    Very much like mine. Tone is heading towards the richness you get with a high end solid Koa uke, and the headstock on the tenor is to die for.

    One or two build issues though which show it’s far eastern factory heritage, but they are minor and overall – highly recommended.

    Nice clean crisp sound but lacks in volume. Looks and feels great.

Got something to say?
