First the staff at Austin Bazaar staff was very helpful and shipping was prompt. Been playing for about ten years and have a like number of instruments. My first ukulele was a low end Kala soprano and I loved it. Upon opening the box for this one I was impressed with the appearance. Great looking and the frets were well finished. After that I discovered that corners were cut to keep the price down. The negatives: I’ve played it every day for two weeks the tuners are not very good and have to be adjusted every morning (yes, I tightened them). Next the set up was poor (intonation). The notes all go sharp at about the 7th fret. Inside there is no kerfing to support the back (but it seems to be stable). The single back brace is crooked (glued to one side but not the other).
Bottom line - the price was low so it is an OK travel uke. I have a tenor Kala (also a laminate) with none of these problems. Kala needs to work their quality control. Thanks for reading.
