If you're looking to buy your first ukulele and don't want to break the bank or sacrifice quality, the Kala Makala Classic Tenor uke is one of the best deals on the market. This quality ukulele offers great tonewoods, solid craftsmanship, and impeccable uke tone — all from a company that has been dedicated to ukes and nothing but ukes for decades. Ukulele enthusiasts here at Sweetwater love the Makala Classic Tenor for its affordability, craftsmanship, and stellar tone.
One of the standouts of the Makala Classic is its all-mahogany body. This time-tested tonewood is known for its rich tone as well as its gorgeous appearance. The beautiful dark red hue of mahogany ages wonderfully in both tone and color. A gorgeous walnut fingerboard complements the mahogany and is richly responsive and instantly playable. Forming chords, finding new voicings, and creating your own style is what this uke is all about.
