Kala KA-S Mahogany Soprano Ukulele
Features a traditional design with exquisite white binding
Add the essence of Hawaiian music to your concerts with the Kala KA-S Mahogany Soprano Ukulele. This instrument features a compact design and is therefore easy to carry. If your vocation involves a lot of travel, the KA-S ukulele serves as an ideal companion. It produces a thin, metallic sound typical of the classical ukuleles. Thanks to the reduced string tension, the KA-S offers immense playing comfort. This instrument is a wise investment for both intermediate and professional musicians alike. The white binding on the top and satin finish enhance the aesthetic appeal of this sweet-sounding instrument. It is equipped with die-cast tuners, which help preserve the tuning despite repeated use.
Top, Body, and Neck
The Kala KA-S Soprano Ukulele is crafted predominantly from mahogany. This tonewood influences the sound produced by the ukulele in different ways, depending on the parts it appears on. The mahogany construction of the top translates into the addition of a great deal of punch to the sound. Therefore, if you are required to play to an audience of country or blues aficionados, you know what to pick. Mahogany offers fast sound transmission and consequently contributes to overtone colouration. The full, forceful midrange delivered by this instrument is sure to keep your patrons listening with rapt attention. Mahogany on the neck helps compress the highs and absorb the string vibrations to deliver crisp tones.
The small fretboard of the Kala KA-S Soprano Ukulele makes this instrument an ideal choice for both novices and established musicians alike. The fretboard is made from Laurel , which guarantees strength and durability. Owing to the porous texture of this tonewood, all the stray overtones are eliminated to deliver sounds rich in fundamentals. All in all, Laurel imparts a great deal of stability to the overall construction.
Saddle and Strings
The nut and saddle of this instrument are constructed from a special patented material called NuBone, created by GraphTech following 20 years of research and development. It offers well-defined highs and lows as well as a full midrange, which translates into excellent projection. This material renders seamless transfer of vibrations to the top of the instrument, thus enhancing its harmonic content. In addition, the compensated saddle helps in the accurate adjustment of the intonation of each string, thus improving playability. Next up, you have the Supernylgut strings from Aquila that not only add to the visual appeal of this instrument but also give you that extra edge over your contemporaries. This material offers a smooth feel and consequently a comfortable playing experience. Supernylgut has been designed to stand strong in high-intensity situations. Another advantage of Supernylgut is its ability to maintain the intonation in the face of humidity variations. In a nutshell, you obtain a deep and focused sound output.
Ease of Use
The Kala KA-S Soprano Ukulele is easy to tune, owing to the short-scale fretboard. The ukulele offers quick access to the frets and is therefore a fitting choice for individuals with small hands. Thus, it is time to fret away to glory with the Kala KA-S Soprano Ukulele.
