If you're looking to buy your first ukulele and don't want to break the bank or sacrifice quality, the Kala Makala Classic uke is one of the best deals on the market. This quality ukulele offers great tonewoods, solid craftsmanship, and impeccable uke tone — all from a company that has been dedicated to ukes and nothing but ukes for decades. Uke enthusiasts here at Music Experience love the Makala Classic for its affordability, craftsmanship, and stellar tone.
One of the standouts of the Makala Classic is its all-mahogany body. This time-tested tonewood is known for its rich tone as well as its gorgeous appearance. The beautiful, dark red hue of mahogany ages wonderfully in both tone and color. A gorgeous walnut fingerboard complements the mahogany and is richly responsive and instantly playable. Forming chords, finding new voicings, and creating your own style is what this uke is all about.
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 Makala Classic line is simply the best entry-level ukulele on the market. Sound and playability usually suffer when offered at these affordable prices, but not with the Makala. With a fantastic sound and vintage look, the Makala Classic line won’t break the bank.
