Top-notch Soprano Ukulele Adorned with Ebony

The Kala Elite 3KOA Soprano Ukulele is one of the most traditional and finest ukuleles that we offer at Sweetwater. The body is made entirely from beautifully figured solid koa, a wood that's only found on the islands of Hawaii. Because koa imparts a very balanced tonality to the Elite 3KOA Soprano Uke, you'll enjoy a full sound with plenty of top-end clarity. And the soprano size is the most traditional ukulele style, giving you an unmistakable sound, excellent projection, and playing comfort. The Kala Elite 3KOA Soprano Ukulele puts the sounds of the Hawaiian islands in your hands.

The soprano ukulele

The soprano, which is the most traditional 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. You'll find that the Kala Elite 3KOA soprano uke gives you impressive volume for its diminuitive size along with very clear tones. Sweetwater knows that finding a great playing and sounding ukulele is important to you, and we're confident that the Kala Elite 3KOA soprano ukulele can do the job.

Elite 3KOA series

Kala's Elite series boasts a bevy of features that add up to what Kala calls "Our best ukulele yet." The all-solid figured koa used for the body is exceedingly rare and is the true sound of a Hawaiian uke. This 3KOA uke is adorned with dark ebony on its fingerboard, bridge, and even headstock and heel cap. A GraphTech TUSQ nut and real bone string saddle are used for optimal string vibration transfer into the instrument's body. And a modern UV finishing process is used to achieve an extremely thin but protective finish that brings out the gorgeous figure of the uke's koa.

From Kala - the uke company

Kala is all about uke. 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.

Kala Elite 3KOA Soprano Ukulele Features:
  • Easy-playing soprano ukulele with premium tonewoods
  • Beautifully decorated with ebony appointments
  • Solid figured koa body gives you a rich tone
  • Thin and protective UV gloss finish
  • Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard with oval pearl inlays
  • GraphTech TUSQ nut and bone saddle for enhanced tonality
The sound of the Kala Elite 3KOA Soprano will instantly transport you to the islands.
