Unique Tone with Gorgeous Looks!

Prepare to be impressed with Kala's KA-8 eight-string tenor ukulele. This great-sounding uke is part of Kala's Mahogany series, providing you with stunning looks and tone to match. One look at the KA-8's beautiful mahogany top, back, and sides, and you'll know this is one special uke. The G- and C-strings are doubled with octaves, while the E- and A-strings are in unison. This gives you a similar effect as a 12-string guitar, with a richer, more lush sound than a standard four-string uke. Equipped with a set of ultra-stable die-cast tuners and strung with premium Aquila Nylgut strings, there's no doubt this Kala KA-8 tenor ukulele was made to be played.

I got my Kala Ka-8 earlier this week. Great finish, Fantastic tone and a pleasure to pay. I'm really happy I got it and and added to my collection of Ukuleles.
Music background: Just to play my Ukuleles.

Excellent instrument

Paid $100 more for this in Honolulu than it sells for here. I've played a custom made David Gomes tenor for years that cost six times the cost as this and the both sound excellent and play well. I bought this because I play a 12 string guitar and love the sound. This is well worth the price.

Love this 8 String

This 8 String Kala Ukulele is terrific! It has great sound and I love the look. Took it to a Ukulele Gala and everyone wanted to try it; even the banjo players! Love it, love it!
Music background: I Play a Banjo/Uke in a Banjo Band.
