Kala Soprano Ukulele Starter Kit

From popular ukulele maker Kala, this starter kit is their entry into the entry-level market, the main component of which is a mahogany body soprano ukulele.

Instead of the usual plastic nuts and saddle, this one comes with GrapthTech NuBone, which is well received for its good string-to-body vibration transference and durability.  

For extra eye candy, it comes with a laser-etched traditional Polynesian Shark Teeth graphic on its rosette.  

Also included in this kit is a quick start guide and a tote bag, along with app-based extras that include online lessons and a tuner.

Key Features

  • Top: Mahogany
  • Body: Mahogany

Pros

Most owners are happy to recommend the Kala Soprano Ukulele to anyone who is just starting out.  It impresses young musicians along with the adults who bought it for them, who commend the kit for its playability and good sounds.  Experienced uke players appreciate the addition of NuBone for the nut and saddle, which helps improve the instrument's overall tone.  It also helps that it looks as good as it sounds.

Cons

There are some who question the quality of the included accessories, while others are not too happy with the video tutorials.

Overall

No matter what you're level of playing is, it's hard to go wrong with Kala branded ukuleles.
