The Resonator Uke provides a loud and distinctive tone
Rather than utilizing a wooden soundboard like a standard ukulele, a resonator ukulele utilizes spun aluminum cones to produce its tone. Resonator ukes were originally designed to be louder than conventional ukuleles so they wouldn't be overwhelmed by other instruments during a performance. Resonator ukuleles also produce a different and distinctive tone quality. Although resonator ukuleles resemble lap steel guitars, these ukes are typically played in a conventional manner, rather than in a flat or bottleneck style.
The Tenor Uke is the perfect size - not too big, not too small
The concert ukulele - one size larger than the original soprano - was introduced in the 1920s as an "enhanced" soprano, sporting a louder, deeper tone with more body and richness. In the quest for even more volume and deeper bass, the tenor came along shortly thereafter. You'll find (much to your delight) that the Kala Tenor Resonator Ukulele gives you robust volume for its relatively diminutive size, along with deliciously clear ukulele tone.
Kala produces expertly-crafted ukeleles
Kala is all about the uke. The company lives and breathes ukulele - ukes are all they make, and they make them exceedingly well. In fact, Kala is in no small part responsible for the strong resurgence of interest in the uke that's been going on since the mid 1990s. They design and manufacture over 120 different models made from a variety of woods, including lacewood, koa, mango, mahogany, flame/spalted maple, bocote, acacia, and the classic spruce top/rosewood back and sides combo.
