The Kala KA-P Mahogany Pineapple Soprano Ukulele is best suited for causal strummers and music students who want to explore the vast depths of the musical ocean.

The Aquila Super Nylgut strings ensure bright and clear sound.
Kala has always chosen premium quality tonewoods for the construction of its instruments. Its ‘no-nonsense’ policy in terms of quality reflects in the KA-P ukulele. The meticulous construction process follows the traditional norms of Kala to ensure the brand’s signature sound. The Kala ukulele has a mahogany body that provides a fundamental warm tone with plenty of grind and brittle. When you strum the strings, the vibrations in the neck receive additional warmth. The shape of the neck is ergonomically designed so that you can move your hand swiftly between the frets.
Rosewood is selected for the fretboard to help enhance sustain. The rosewood tonewood improves the midrange and provides clarity to the low end. It also cleans stray overtones from ruining the overall sound quality. The oily surface of rosewood is another factor that appeals to musicians around the globe. This ukulele has a rosewood bridge that maintains the warmth in the tone and makes the sound full and round.
