Kala KA-CGE Gloss Mahogany Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele

The price tier occupied by the Kala KA-CGE ($150+) is where you start to see a significant increase in quality over beginner instruments. But not everyone is deemed as worthy of the price as this mahogany body concert shape uke from Kala.

While this ukulele has a very warm tone as expected from mahogany body ukuleles, this one is more resonant and packs a bit more volume acoustically. In addition, this uke also comes with an active pickup system as well as an onboard tuner.

The preamp unit used is the Shadow Nano-Flex EQ System, which is an active preamp that gets a lot of good reviews overall. The electronics are a definite step ahead of those in this price range, so if you’re looking to gig with the ukulele consistently the KA-CGE is a just as good of an option as the Cordoba or Luna options we have recommended in this guide.

At a Glance:
The Kala KA-CGE is one of the cheapest ukuleles that would be suitable for regular gigging. It sounds much better than a beginner ukulele, though those who will only play the instrument occasionally likely won’t benefit much from it.
