      Comments about Kala Ka-Sem Exotic Mahogany Soprano Ukulele (Natural):

      I found Kala makes some decent ukuleles for the beginner and intermediate player. They grabbed my attention because each line sounds different and unique from each other. The KA-SEM looks great and has a loud bright voice. I had a couple cheaper sopranos because I wasn't sure I was going to like playing them versus a concert or a tenor, but they've grown on me and I enjoy them for their own unique sound. This one and I took about 3 weeks for me to decide if I like how it felt and sounded, and I had the saddle adjusted lower and it's like butter to play on. Easy peasy. I'm more comfortable with a long neck soprano, but this one I call "Little Evey" and it reminds me to focus on correct finger placement more so than the others I have. This is a good thing, she doesn't like to be handled without care. When I pay attention it really projects well.

        Comments about Kala Ka-Sem Exotic Mahogany Soprano Ukulele (Natural):

        I picked it up from the Sam Ash store while I was in Manhattan. I tried numerous instruments, even the Kala travel tenor, but this particular instrument drew my eye immediately. Soprano sized, it doesn't have the frets that a tenor has. However, despite its size, it resonates ridiculously well with beautiful tone, unmatched by any ukulele in the price range. On top of the sound, it was easily the most aesthetically pleasing ukulele in the store. I couldn't leave the city without it.

        I gave it short of five stars because it didn't come with a pick-up. Maybe there's an acoustic-electric version, I don't know. That said, if you have really big hands, don't buy a soprano, you'll be pigeonholing yourself in discomfort. I think they make a concert and/or tenor of similar design. That said, small to average hands should get on this!

        So I bought this yesterday, the service was amazing. I chose this over the Lakilani brand, because one, the wood. I mean the wood looks great on this the Lakilani has dark wood with white, but everyone gets that. I am a novice at playing but learning on this instrument is extremely fun. It gets out of tune ever once and while but that happens with every ukulele. Oh yeah its loud, but you feel good while playing it.
