Kala 1KOA-SG Elite Series Soprano Ukulele with Gloss Finish

Elite Series, Kala's best ukulele yet.

The Elite Series ukulele is the result of the ever growing passion and unyielding commitment to providing players with the ultimate ukulele experience. Every component, from the vivid aesthetics to the tiniest of structural pieces, was purposefully designed to create an everlasting platform for the next generation of ukulele players.

To develop an instrument of the highest caliber, Kala first turned to one of the most respected ukulele luthiers in the world, Michael DaSilva. Under DaSilva’s guidance, Kala's builders established the discipline necessary to produce the fundamental beginnings of the Elite Series ukulele. This series could not exist without the feedback and support from DaSilva and many other influential individuals within the ukulele community.

A ukulele’s top is the most visually recognizable influencer of the instrument’s sound. By approaching the design in similar fashion to classical guitar builders of the last 150 years, they were able to engineer a flat top that produces rich treble and bountiful bass, resulting in an uncompromisingly balanced tonal character.

The visual elegance of the top is paired with a string through bridge method, creating a sleek waterfall like effect. Internally, a Maple bridge pad lends added strength to the structure of the instrument, allowing the force of tension to pull from underneath, optimizing sound vibration across the entire top of the ukulele.

In order to appeal to a wide range of personal playing styles, they tailored the necks to deliver maximum player comfort and intensified accuracy. By integrating a 1.5” fingerboard width and a natural radius into the neck’s design, Kala was able to develop custom string spacing, allowing players to navigate quickly and efficiently across the entire range of the fretboard.

They lengthened the distance from the top of the neck to the headstock, providing players an added layer of comfort through more natural hand positioning. Finally, the single piece neck features a bolt on design, simplifying routine maintenance and dramatically reducing risk of damage while servicing the instrument over its lifetime.

The harmonious intersection of traditional elegance and modern instrument design make this a ukulele to be enjoyed for generations to come. The Elite Series is the new standard, delivering a truly remarkable sound and playing experience.

Quite simply, it is Kala's best ukulele yet.
