Kala KA-15S-S Entry Level Spruce Top Soprano Ukulele. The Kala Mahogany Series now offers the KA-15S-S with a Spruce Top!
Normally reserved for instruments in the higher price ranges, spruce now makes a welcome appearance on a ukulele for the more budget conscious. The Kala KA-15S-S retains the full-bodied tone of the rest of the mahogany series, with plenty of "Sweet Highs" and "Mellow Lows".
The addition of the spruce top adds a little more volume and 'punch' to the overall sound, and lends a striking visual contrast with the lighter spruce finish paired with mahogany. Mahogany back and sides provide the typical warmth and rich mid-tones typical of the tonewood. It's great to see spruce on an affordable starter instrument for a change, and on the KA-15S-S it gives a little extra weight and top end sparkle to the overall sound.
The Kala KA-15S-S is simple but stylish in the looks department. Stripped down and tastefully finished, the only decoration is a laser etched 'Sun' graphic around the sound hole. The Kala brand logo adorns the headstock. This clean looking starter instrument is more than worthy addition to the Kala range!
Chrome die-cast open back tuners with white pearloid buttons assure your instrument will stay in tune. This is a very affordable entry-level ukulele from Kala. It's a great sounding little ukulele and a considerable step up from their Makala budget range. Well worth the extra spend and little added luxury with the spruce top.
