The Kala Solid Flame Maple Tenor Ukulele stands out from the crowd. This four-string is crafted from solid Flame Maple on the top, back, and sides; a tonewood known for its punchy, clear projection and a tone towards the brighter side of the spectrum. It's not the most common tonewood either, which only makes it more desirable and unique.
Physically, this uke is very promising. The slotted headstock adds class. The Purpleheart rosette adds elegance. The cutaway is probably the most interesting feature. Unlike the common Venetian cutaway, which is rounded, this tenor has a Florentine cutaway (note how the cutaway sharply ends). I can't think of another uke that has this enviable idiosyncrasy. Definitely a nice addition from Kala. If you're into unique instruments, you'll appreciate the excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail that went into making this ukulele.

Excellent customer service and professional advice, you can't go wrong with UkuleleMate! This uke plays like a dream, incredibly smooth and harplike sound. It sounds really great in recordings so if you like to share your music, this is a lovely uke to have. Easy to tune. I love the slotted headstock. It is solid wood, has a wonderful profile and doesn't feel bulky. The hard case is of an excellent quality, looks great and I don't have to worry when I have my uke inside - there is a clip on shoulder strap which is really handy when you're on the go. Pictured here with the uke stand which is really sturdy and folds away neatly, I was so impressed I bought a second one for my other uke! I really enjoyed having the bundle so when it comes, you're ready to go. Of all the ukes I've played, this one is my favourite and definitely worth it. I have played it every day and I don't want to put it down!
Great and great delivery process too - v quick and efficient
All ukuleles under $1000 are made in China. There are a handful of instruments made in the USA/Australia but they come with a hefty price tag and aren't always worth the price.
