Kala is doubling the fun with the Makala 8-String Tenor Ukulele, featuring twice as many strings and cool uke design.

It just gets cooler and cooler in Kala's world. Their ukulele innovation and high quality design continue to impress and bring ukuleles to the forefront of musical instrument popularity. This innovative uke sports a tenor body, 8-string design, and classy ukulele appointments. This ukulele is an excellent choice for ukulele players who want to venture into 8-string territory.

Tenor Body
The all-mahogany body of this ukulele is crafted into tenor size, so you can get that nice tenor tone. The body of the Makala 8-String Tenor measures 11.75 inches in length and has an overall instrument length of 26.125 inches. Sitting on the lower end of the ukulele spectrum, the size of the body creates a slightly more versatile tone, with less piercing highs. It also sports a walnut fingerboard on mahogany neck.

8-String Design
Certainly the most unique part of this ukulele is the 8-strings. In the same way a 12-string guitar doubles up each of the standard 6 strings, the Kala Makala 8-String Tenor ukulele doubles each of the standard 4 ukulele strings. This produces a very full, chorus type uke tone.

Classy Ukulele Appointments
This ukulele has classy appointments to complete the awesome package. The Kala Makala 8-String Tenor Ukulele is finished in satin. It has a plastic nut and saddle. The standard headstock sports 8 tuners, one for each individual string, to assure it's all nicely tuned and toned. It comes equipped with Aquila Super Nylgut strings for quality tone right out of the box.

Features:
  • 8-String Tenor Ukulele
  • All-Mahogany 11.75 Inch Body
  • Mahogany Neck with Walnut Fingerboard
  • Satin Finish
  • Standard Headstock with Tuner for Each of the 8 Strings
  • Aquila Super Nylgut strings
