While hunting the best ukuleles, we took a look at this Kala Tenor, which is an acoustic electric ukulele. The body of the ebony combined with the neck of the mahogany has a really good look and the sound is deep and warm, which is what you expect from a tenor ukulele. As a brand, Kala does a great job of manufacturing inexpensive, well-built, quality ukuleles. We also reviewed the Kala Tenor Resonator Ukulele.

9.8 Expert Score

The Kala Ebony Tenor Ukulele is an awesome Tenor sized acoustic electric ukulele.  The ebony body paired with the mahogany neck has a very nice look to it and the tone is deep and rich, which is what you want from a tenor ukulele.  Kala, as a brand, does a great job of producing quality ukuleles that are affordable and well built. Intermediate players that also play acoustic guitars may like what they see in this Yamaha FS820 review as well.

  • Strong sound both acoustic and amplified.
  • Great price for the solid design.
  • Since it is mass-produced, every so often one slips through the cracks with string buzz.
