Kala KA-6E Electro 6-String Tenor Ukulele
This 6-string, the electro KA-6E from Kala, has classy looks, and packs a real punch with its interesting 6-string format. This gives you a G, a high C paired with a regular C, an E, and then a regular A. The final string position is taken up with a low, wound A. As you strum across the strings then, after the G it goes high to the high G, down to the C, up to the E, up to the A and then all the way down again to the low A - like a wave of sound. (Are you still following this?!)
The body is laminate mahogany, and while solid wood could make something of a difference, if anything, the string combination 'makes' the uke - its unusual characteritics make it sound like a 6-string. I realise that is stating the obvious, but what I'm trying to say is that the key distinguishing feature is the tuning of the strings. The mahogany is finished off with a nice gloss varnish, a simple soundhole decoration and a very well executed, neat slotted headstock.
Aquila strings are fitted and kept in check by some fancy looking gold coloured tuners, with the Graphtech nut and saddle adding a little extra sustain. The dark mahogany is also nicely set off by the pale cream ABS binding.
