If you can afford to own this concert ukulele, don’t hesitate to make this investment.  This is one of the best ukuleles the Kala brand has to offer.  While Kala is known for their well built affordable ukuleles, this high end model elevates the brand to new levels.

In line with the best ukuleles, is One of Kala ‘s finest instruments… this Kala Elite Concert Ukulele. They make great affordable ukuleles but, with the Ukulele Elite Concert, they really show that they can hang for the world’s top end ukuleles with the best of them. The fine Koa wood and special UV finishing process produce an impressive look and kind of has the feel of a Martin retro parlor guitar. The ukulele ‘s natural sound is anything but remarkable and sets it apart from the Kala Tenor Acoustic-Electric Ukulele.

The Kala 3KOA-CG Elite Concert Ukulele is one of Kala’s finest instruments.  They make great affordable ukuleles but with the Elite Concert Ukulele, they really show that they can hang with the best of them for the top end ukuleles of the world.  The fine Koa wood and the unique UV finishing process creates a look that is stunning and kind of has the vibe of a vintage Martin parlor guitar.  The natural tone of the ukulele is just exceptional.
