Kala KA-SRMT-TRI Tri Back Tenor Ukulele



Stock: OUT OF STOCK - Usually available at short notice

The Kala KA-SRMT-TRI Tri Back Tenor Ukulele - This special edition Kala tenor ukulele, the KA-SRMT-TRI, has wonderful looks, but sounds really nice and sweet too. It has all solid tonewoods, with a solid spruce top and cleverly made solid rosewood and mango back. This mixture of woods gives a really sweet-sounding tone, as well as looking really beautiful. Obviously with a uke like this, the main attention in the visual department is on the back, but there are lots of smart features on the front to keep things appealing there too. The headstock has a mango cap, and a nice abalone inlay, as well as mother of pearl Kala logo. The KA-SRMT-TRI has decorative abalone inlays as fingerboard position markers too, as well as the less attractive, but more necessary markers on the neck. Around the soundhole is a rosewood rosette - it is interesting how they've used the same combination of woods for the decoration and for the contruction. The star of the show of this gloss finish tenor ukulele is the back, with its wedge shape of solid mango in between solid rosewood. The body has mahogany binding and this wood separates the mango and rosewood too, as does black and white purfling. Lots of decorative features for a tenor ukulele that really stands out. So much effort then has gone into the appearance, it leaves you wondering if the really crucial matter of sound has been neglected? However, once you've tuned up (using the very nice open Grover geared tuners), you are presented with a really sparkling and sweet tone, bright without harshness, loud without barking at you. It is definitely up there with the best Kala models in that respect. Of course having such a nice looking thing pushes up the price of the KA-SRMT-TRI, but if you can say that the sound alone warrants the price tag, then you're onto a good thing.
