Since mahogany body ukes are quite popular, it only makes sense for a company like Kala to produce one with built-in electronics, and that is precisely what the KA-CE is all about.

For plugging in, Kala equipped the KA-CE with a Omega II piezo pickup, along with an active preamp that has 2-Band EQ and a Chromatic LED tuner.

Another cool feature is the its GraphTech NuBone nut and saddle.
