Concert style body
While concert style bodies use the same tuning as their soprano counterparts, the concert offers a little larger body. The larger body offers more warmth and projection due to the size of the soundboard and the increased space within. If you are accustomed to the tuning and chord formations of a soprano ukulele, but would just like more sound, this body style is what you are looking for.
Solid Honduran mahogany top, back, and sides
Grown between Mexico and southern Amazonia, Honduran mahogany (also known as big-leaf mahogany) is considered to be the only true mahogany species grown today. It has a straight, fine, and even grain, and is remarkably well voiced as a tonewood. The focused midrange of this wood helps notes to jump out of the body, allowing you to play more effortlesly, while still attaining ideal projection and cut through when playing in a group.
Upgraded saddle and nut
The importance of the saddle and nut on stringed instruments cannot be overstated, as these are the main points where the string vibrates on the instruments, transfering the sound into the body to be projected. While some manufacturers use plastic parts to cut down costs, Kala has used a bone bridge and GraphTech NuBone nut, ensuring that none of the crispness and nuance is lost in that sound transfer. These strong elements not only have a possitive effect on the tone, but will likely last for as long as you own this instrument.
