"A marvelous twist of fate brought us this wonderful batch of spalted, flamed, maple wood for these beautiful ukulele. The amazing spalt patterns in this wood are incredibly intricate. We have paired it with a solid, Sitka spruce top and mahogany binding on the back and sides of these lovely ukulele. They have a synthetic bone nut and saddle, custom tuners, solid mahogany neck with a walnut fingerboard and bridge. The sound is clear and bright with great projection."
The gloss finish is thinner than ever to let the wood “speak”. And it does. As you can hear in the sound sample, this tenor sounds great! It would certainly be a top contender for best tenor in the under $300 range. This is a big, clear sound with bell like tones than will have you loving every minute you get to play uke. For many people Spruce is the ultimate soundboard wood. It projects and gives a wide range of frequencies hardwoods can not. One of the great things about spruce is that the sound will improve for many years. This makes it more of a keepsake. Something that you will have for many years and will continue to get better.
If you were looking for a really great sounding and playing tenor at a reasonable price, this Kala FMTG is a wonderful choice. Not only is Kala coming with better quality than ever before, but after your uke makes it past our quality check, it is then significantly improved with a setup you would normally only get from a specialty repair or custom shop.
