    Comments about Kala KA-CEM Exotic Mahogany Concert Ukulele:

    This is a great Uke for the price. The mahogany body is attractive and gives a natural tone. The comfortable neck has low action and has a nice string spacing for easy chord formation. This instrument stays in tune well and features a good set of die cast tuners.

    I got this for my mother in law and I taught her some rolling stones songs. Had such a blast I went back and bought myself one! It's a great time playing around the house and I love having a uke to mess around.

    Fun Uke

    By 

    from Canoga Park, CA

    Staff Reviewer

    Comments about Kala KA-CEM Exotic Mahogany Concert Ukulele:

    I would call myself a recreational uke player, meaning I play other instruments and dabble with uke for fun. So, I'm not really interested in sinking a lot of money into an instrument. However, among the under 200 ukes, there's a lot of trash: plastic tuners, plastic bodies, trashy sounds, etc. This uke has solid metal tuners, wood body through and through, and it sounds really good. Not being a connoisseur of ukuleles, I can't really tell the sound difference between this on and much more expensive ones, and it's fun to play!

      Solid uke for just over 100 bucks. The exotic mahogany looks great and produces a really nice mellow tone as well. The uke is definitely a step up from some beginner type models. Kala again has produced an excellent affordable instrument.

          These ukuleles are awesome! They are one of my go to instruments for beginners as they offer great tone, are easy to play, and look great too. The flame mahogany looks beautiful and matches the great tone quality of this instrument. They come strung with Aquila strings which sound fantastic and hold tune well.

            Comments about Kala KA-CEM Exotic Mahogany Concert Ukulele:

            An amazing value for a Ukulele with this much craftsmanship. The exotic mahogany wood gives off a fairly vibrant tone, especially paired with their great concert shape. The Aquila Nylgut Strings tie this together and make for an all around great Uke for players of any age and size

            Another one going into the Hawaiian Maiden cover band! The mahogany gives great tone and this is a really nice gem that is fun to play. Does not come with a case, but worth it to spend a few extra bucks and protect the investment.
