The Kala Elite Ukulele captures the eye with their striking beauty. Kala are using Solid Hawaiian Koa for all of their current offerings. They use a modern UV finishing process that brings out the unique appearance of each instrument with incredible clarity.
The UV finish is sprayed on in thin coats and uses far less material than a typical lacquered instrument. In essence, a UV finish is far less impactful to our environment than other finishes. It also keeps the instrument lightweight while providing a very hard durable finish.
The Kala Elite Ukulele are created to produce the fullest, richest and warmest sound. The tops are built to resonate in sympathy with the entire instrument. The braces are designed to reduce weight while giving the instrument proper strength and stability. The back is slightly arched to focus the sound up and out of the instrument.
The Fluorocarbon strings provide a clear, bell-like sound. Kala use the string-through bridge string tying method. Instead of the string being tied on top of the bridge, the string is knotted at the end. This makes contact with the underside of the bridge thus; transferring the string vibration more effectively to the top. This “vibration transfer” is key to allowing maximum resonance. In essence a Kala Elite Ukulele is created to be like an audio speaker cabinet - projecting sound, tone and musical nuance to the hearer.
The Kala Elite Ukulele are purposefully designed and engineered to feel amazing and play easily. The fret spacing, nut placement, and saddle positioning are all calculated to give the Kala Elite Ukulele the best intonation available on any Ukulele on the planet. This in combination with the Kala 16:1 and 14:1 ratio tuners and Fluorocarbon strings allow these ukes the freedom to play tunes…in tune.
The Honduran mahogany neck has been contoured and tapered to fit in your hand smoothly, comfortably with plenty of access to low and high note.
Every instrument is completely built, set up, and inspected at Kala ensuring you are getting an instrument that has been built to be one of the finest ukulele on the planet in the way that it looks, the way that it is designed and in the way that it sounds when its played.

Comments about Kala 2KOA-SG Elite Soprano Ukulele:
I'm a guitar player, but I love stringed instruments in general. I've had a few nice ukuleles in the past, but had traded them away at some point, in order to buy other gear.
My philosophy in getting a new ukulele was to buy the very best American made instrument I could without unnecessarily breaking the bank. The Kala Koa Elite soprano was just the right fit!
In addition to the fabulous tone (it makes the Martin S1 sound shrill) and quality craftsmanship -- two features stood out: A slightly longer scale length (making it nearly as easy to play as a concert sized uke), and great tuners that not only hold well -- but all allow fine tuning of a note. These tuners are proprietary to Kala.
Yes, ukes in the Kala Elite Series are a little more expensive, but worth every dime.
