Kala KA-15S-H2 Soprano Ukulele
Features a mahogany body and rosewood fretboard that helps generate its unique soprano
Whether playing in an ensemble or strumming solo, the Kala KA-15S-H2 Soprano Ukulele lets you win the hearts of your audiences. This ukulele features a mahogany body that delivers a warm tone with nice articulation of the midrange. The mahogany neck is paired with a rosewood fretboard to add additional warmth in the tone, making it sound full. Additionally, rosewood improves clarity by absorbing any stray overtones in its oily surface. Graph Tech’s evolutionary NuBonenut is incorporated in the design to makes the tone clear at the lower end and give more stability. Four geared tuners in the headstock can be used for tuning the ukulele strings.
Body and Neck
Quality tonewoods and plys are used in the construction of the KA-15S-H2 ukulele. The construction process follows the traditional norms of Kala to ensure the unique sound, which is the signature of the brand. The Kala ukulele has mahogany as the primary tonewood for the body and neck. It determines the fundamental warm tone of the ukulele. The sound also has a touch of grind and brittle. The mahogany neck lets the vibrations travel to the body while retaining their natural warmth. In addition, the neck is ergonomically shaped which provides comfort during long practise sessions or gigs.
Rosewood Fretboard and Bridge
The fretboard is a deciding factor for the tone of the ukulele. The Kala ukulele has a rosewood fretboard that enhances the midrange and ensures a clear low end. Rosewood also ensures the warmth in the tone is maintained at the higher frequencies. The oily surface of rosewood is preferred by a number of musicians around the globe. The rosewood bridge passes the string vibrations to the top of the ukulele while maintaining the warm tone.
NuBone Nut and Aquila Ukulele Strings
The unique warm yet clear voice of the Kala ukulele is down to the Aquila ukulele strings. They are made from special Nylgut material that is composed from both nylon and gut. These strings offer easy playability and a pleasant response when strummed. The ukulele features an innovative nut design by Graph Tech. It is made from a highly resonant TUSQ material that has a high tolerance level while working under pressure. The NuBone nut helps the ukulele retain the full rounded tone for a long time.
Laser Etched Design on Ergonomically Shaped Body
The Kala ukulele features laser etched artwork on the top. The artwork showcases Miami islands on the left and a Hawaiian islands artwork on the right. This ukulele has a curved body shape that allows you to play comfortably. The satin finish adds a touch of elegance to the ukulele.
