Hello Friends,

Looking for my father's day gift.... lucky me! I am very intrigued by the Kala Ka-sstu-te. Anyone have any experience? Looks like it sounds awesome, very light, playable, and people that own them can't seem to put them down.Thoughts????

I bought one about 9 years ago and it had a great loud voice and was a very nice instrument. . For travel I would buy a flea or fluke, they are almost indestructible.

Hey Adam! I don't have a Kala travel uke, but I've played them and thought they were surprisingly loud. My friends who do have them enjoy them quite a bit. Personally, though, I don't see the rationale for the super-shallow body, at least in terms of making a uke "travel-friendly." I mean, the body depth is the smallest physical dimension of any ukulele, so shaving a couple of inches there doesn't strike me as any great convenience. I have a couple of higher-end Kala tenors with full-depth bodies, and I would prefer either of those just because they sound really good for not too much money. If you do go with a Kala or other production uke, though, you might want to get it from a dealer who can set it up for you. The factory action can be kind of high. Good luck.

I have the tenor and am thrilled with it. Amazing volume and tone. I switched to low G - personal preference. Comes with a nice padded and contoured soft case with handle and two back pack type straps. Easy to pack around.
