August 4, 2010
PG's Brett Petrusek is On Location in Nashville, TN, for the 2010 Summer NAMM Show where he visits the Kala Ukulele booth. In this segment, we check out three of their newest instruments--the Solid Body U-Bass, Hawaiian Koa Soprano, and the Solid Acacia Concert.

The Hawaiian Koa Soprano is made with Hand-Selected Hawaiian Koa harvested on the Big Island of Hawaii. Fitted with Maple binding on the top and back, these instruments beg to be played. High quality chrome die-cast tuners will keep your instrument in tune. As with most of our ukulele, active EQ options are available.

The Solid Acacia (Mimosa or Shower Tree) Concert are made from tropical trees that are cousins of the Hawaiian Koa tree. They have gorgeous striped patterns of light and dark brown and have a deep colorful tone that match their visual beauty. These solid wood ukes come sized in Soprano, Concert and custom Tenor with a slotted-headstock. They are trimmed with rosewood edge binding and classic herringbone purfling. Custom position markers accent the fretboard. The Soprano has classic friction style tuners. The Concert comes with chrome die-cast tuners with black buttons and the Tenor has vintage geared chrome tuners. The ukes come with a rosewood fingerboard and bridge and an ebony nut and saddle.
