The concert, which is the most popular size, is what most people think of when talking about ukuleles. These are the instruments that are both associated with the Hawaiian islands and becoming more and more popular in pop culture. Music Experience knows that finding a great ukulele is important to you, and we're confident that the Kala KA-CWB-BK Concert Ukulele can do the job.
Kala is all about ukulele. In fact, ukes are all they make, and they make them exceedingly well. Kala is in no small part responsible for the strong resurgence of interest in ukuleles that we've seen since the mid 1990s. They design and manufacture over 120 different models made from a variety of woods, including lacewood, koa, mango, and many more, each imparting its own sonic signature and aesthetic beauty to these popular and iconic instruments.
The Waterman is remarkably versatile and designed as an homage to 1950s Maccaferri ukulele. Initially designed to accompany any outdoor adventure, The Waterman is appropriate for the classroom as well—durable and easy to clean! Available in a soprano model—matte black and sea foam green also available in a concert model.
