Kala ukuleles began in 2005, and from the start aimed to offer a wide choice of quality, affordable ukuleles to suit all tastes and pockets. Kala ukuleles are made in China, and are known for using unusual woods such as Mango and Flamed Maple, as well as spruce, koa and mahogany. Kala have recently introduced their slim bodied travel ukuleles, and also their unique Bass ukuleles.

About the Kala Ukulele Range
Kala was founded by Mike Upton, who used to work for Hohner, makers of the Lanikai ukuleles. Kala started in 2005, aiming to offer a wider choice of quality affordable ukuleles. Today Kala probably have the biggest choice of ukuleles available. In fact there are so many it's hard to keep up! But there's certainly something for everyone, whether you are after a cheaper plywood ukulele (such as the Makala ukuleles) or a solid Koa or mahogany wood ukulele, or even an electro acoustic. Kala have developed their range to include a wide variety of woods too, such as spruce, maple and mango.
For something really different, check out the Kala Archtop ukuleles, complete with pickup and EQ, or the amazing Kala Bass ukuleles. There's also a new range of "travel" ukes, all with super slim bodies, a bit like the Brueko Slim ukuleles from Germany.
There are so many Kala models, many of which are so unusual and distinctive, it's hard to describe them as just one brand. There are also quite a number of different woods used. But always check to see if the ukulele is made from solid wood. It's a common practice by manufacturers and retailers to describe a ukulele as being "made from mango" or a "mahogany ukulele", for example. But this may well mean it is laminated - a cheaper wood, laminated with a nicer looking more expensive wood. If it is solid wood, it will say so. A solid wood ukulele will invariably sound better than a laminated or plywood ukulele.
