This Kala 8 string tenor ukulele with Pick Up creates an absolutely brilliant instrument. Tenor Ukuleles are a little bigger, but they project a much smoother sound than concert ukuleles. The greater size makes more flexibility to be extended across the neck and the breadth of the frets. This body type is the chosen alternative for ukulele artists simply because those wanting rich sound and easier access to the upper fret register. For kids, beginners or pros, tenor ukes are still a perfect choice.
The “High Tide” Sequence is the premier line of Ukuleles. High-Tide ukuleles are constructed from rare tropical hardwoods and sound holes surrounded by an abalone ring. This gorgeous ukulele features a fixed neck and all the mahogany construction, resulting in a perfect, deep tone. The Kala KA-8E is the electro-acoustic older brother of Kala KA-8. This 8 string electro-acoustic ukulele is a very good value for money. The build quality is fantastic, and the tone is as you would want from an 8-string-full, and rounded, but with no mud in the mid-range.
The Gloss Mahogany line features a high-gloss finish to enhance the simple elegance of the Mahogany woodgrain. The gloss adds a smoothness and sturdiness to the uke and a cream binding ties it all together.
