Excellent Performance Ukulele

Comments about Kala KA-EBY-TE Ebony Tenor Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

I do a lot of small solo coffehouse/winery gigs and mostly play acoustic guitars - I wanted to add some variety to the set and incorporate some ukulele songs and was looking for a decent acoustic/electric model. This thing fits the bill perfectly. First, it looks sharp - it's obviously not a toy. Second, it sounds really nice and full just playing acoustically - much more so than the cheap uke I had learned to play on. The difference in sound quality between this and my old uke is significant. I play through a small PA just to balance the sound, and the onboard pickup and controls work perfectly. I don't use the bass/treble adjustments too much - I typically keep them level and use the PA to manipulate the sound, but I do use the volume control. I just plug directly into the line input on the PA and add a tiny bit of reverb and it's concert ready. I LOVE the fact that there's an onboard tuner, and when it's engaged it mutes the output. This is a great feature for performance, as I can avoid having to run it through any other pedals just to control the tuning.

It stays in tune reasonably well - much better than my old uke - but I still find myself having to tweak it every few songs. That's been my experience with most ukes, so I'm not going to knock it too much. I also tend to strum pretty hard, so that contributes.

Another minor gripe is the location of the input jack - it's on the bottom right (at the "5 o'clock position" if that makes sense). I don't wear a strap and just set this thing in my lap when I play, so a straight instrument cable is kind of at an awkward angle. My solution was to use an angled cable, so it's more or less flush with the instrument.

I also wish this came with a gig bag or custom case - and I would have paid more for something that specifically fit this instrument.

You could pay more for a better uke, but I think this maximizes value and is totally suitable for a semi-pro performer.
