Joel's Review - Kala have a great reputation for quality instruments at an affordable price. They have delivered here with the KA-15S which is part of the popular satin mahogany range.
I really like the dark stained look of this uke with the mahogany body, the tribal tattoo that surrounds the soundhole and geared tuners. It'll never go out of fashion.
Another reason why it's perfect for beginners - durability. It's a tough little bugger and unaffected by humidity. So there's one less thing to worry about it.
Most people end up buying a 2nd ukulele within 24 months, usually a solid wood ukulele which are more fragile If you do the same, you can always use your Kala KA-15 as your "beach uke" or "travel uke" while you leave your solid wood uke at home.
You really can't go wrong with the KA-15, a great uke for dipping your toes in the ukulele waters.
