Kala's Top-of-the-line Tenor Ukulele

The Kala Elite 3KOA Tenor Ukuleles are some of the finest ukuleles in production. 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 tenor uke, you'll enjoy a full sound with plenty of top-end clarity. And the tenor size is showing up more and more in modern pop music for how well it sits in a mix and works for solo accompaniment. The Kala Elite 3KOA Tenor ukulele puts high-end appointments in the hands of today's players.

The tenor ukulele

These are the instruments that are both associated with the Hawaiian islands and becoming more and more popular in pop culture. The tenor, which is currently the most popular size, is what most solo ukulele performers choose for their main instrument. The uke's bigger construction adds more bass and punch to the tone, which is great for an unaccompanied sound. You'll find that the Kala Elite 3KOA tenor uke gives you impressive volume because of its larger size. And the longer scale length also widens the fret spacing for a more comfortable playing experience.

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 Tenor Ukulele Features:
  • Easy-playing tenor ukulele with premium tonewoods
  • Bigger voice and size are making the tenor the most popular of ukulele sizes
  • 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 tenor will instantly transport you to the islands.

I bought the tenor ukulele because I've been sick and have trouble carrying my guitar. I didn't expect to love it so much. The sound is rich and full. Thanks so much Kala!
