This is the second model developed by Kala with all solid woods. The first was the excellent Kala KA-ASAC-S, which has been extremely successful and is know and a rich, smooth-tones warm-sounding uke. This soprano , the KA-ASOV-S retains the excellent build quality and great all-solid specification, while delivering a uke with a compeltely different voice. This solid spruce and ovangkol soprano ukulele has fabulous sustain and bell-like clarity of bright tone. It is not without depth but the key features are the sweet highs and fantastic projection.

With the KA-ASOV-S soprano ukulele, the sound is really very good - and very loud - the perfect uke for drowing out your fellow players at your ukulele club (though you'll never be able to drown out that banjolele player!). However, while sound is key - it is nice when a uke looks great too. And this lovely soprano will draw stares, especially from the beautiful patterns in the solid back and sides - the ovangkol looks spectacular. Red padauk binding appears around the top and down the bound rosewood fingerboard, which looks nice - as does the ovangkol soundhole rosette - which contrasts nicely with the tightly grained spruce top.

The uke has Aquila strings, which emphasise the brightness that the spruce delivers, while the the KA-ASOV-S has a high gloss finish which also gives the sound some zing, as well as making the wood look particularly pretty. There are Grover, gold open machine heads, which are good quality. They have slightly larger buttons that some grover models which actually make tuning even easier. Finally, there is an ovangkol cap on the headstock, which also features an interesting vine motif in mother of pearl and abalone.

This is a lovely soprano uke. When it arrived and it was in our photo studio, we couldn't resist a quick go in between shots - and it is such a gorgeous sweet toned instrument it became quite a favourite straight away.
