This all solid mahogany tenor ukulele, the Kala KA-SMHT is a fine all rounder - and really impressive value. The tone it produces is full and warm, but with precise, articulate treble notes to compliment the rich background voice. The looks are smart, the specification high, the setup nice and the 'feel' and balance are very good. It really is a well priced and good sounding instrument ideal for those stepping up from laminate instruments.

The Kala KA-SMHT has 18 nicely dressed nickel frets on a smooth rosewood fingerboard, with fret markers on the side of the neck as well as the fretboard itself (these are at the 5th, 7th, 10th and 12th frets). The all solid mahogany body has a light satin finish which shows off the pleasant wood grain. This nicely matches the black and white soundhole rosette and tortoiseshell style body binding (no reptiles were harmed while making this instrument!).

The ukulele is very nice indeed, really nicely crafted and finished, and it lends a hand to making this Kala KA-SMHT a nicely balanced instrument to hold and play. The geared Grover tuners are very good quality too, and together with the Aquila strings, hold the tuning nicely.

Overall, the Kala KA-SMHT offers a high standard of finish, a very nice tone, nice balance and smart looks. If you are looking for a criticism, then... erm... it is probably too cheap (that's not really a criticism is it!).
