The Kala Makala tenor ukulele starter pack is a great option for certain types of players out there. This instrument will appeal to those who find the soprano and concert sized ukulele to be too small and restrictive in terms of spacing to play accurately. The Kala Makala tenor ukulele starter pack comes with a great entry-level version of this fun and attractive sounding instrument as well as with all of the accessories you need to get going right away.
This starter pack comes with the MK-T ukulele. The tenor uke has a rich sound to it that most people will certainly find attractive. If you like playing ensemble parts that add depth to the piece and like standing out by providing a great foundation for the higher-pitched instruments, this is a good choice.
The Kala Makala tenor ukulele starter pack's inclusion of the MK-T model means that affordability isn't synonymous with low quality. This is actually a great quality instrument with hardware that should keep beginner and intermediate players happy for a long time. The instrument has chrome tuners, so corrosion is not an issue. They provide smooth, precise tuning and can hold consistent tension on the strings. This instrument is also provided with the traditional binding that gives it the classic ukulele look. For those who want something classy, affordable and that will keep providing tone that will reward their improvements in playing, this is a good instrument.
It is the Kala Makala tenor ukulele starter pack, after all, and that means you're getting more than a ukulele for your money. The accessories with this kit include the UB-T gig bag. Gig bags are a great way to haul your instrument around. For transport on airplanes and other rough situations, they're not as good as a hard shell, but there are really no other situations for which they're not adequate. They provide excellent insulation against being banged around and against rain and other environmental threats. They're also very light and convenient. They're good for storage, too, and you can pack your ukulele in this bag when you're not playing it and keep it safe from harm.
The gig back has pockets on it that make it convenient for carrying your other items. You can easily stuff a spare set of strings, a tuning peg winder, and the other accessories that come with this ukulele in the bag, too, which makes it very useful. One particular accessory will be music to your ears!
The Kala Makala tenor ukulele starter pack comes with a free clip-on tuner. It's a chromatic tuner, so you can even tune outside of the traditional pitches for the courses and get accurate results. The tuner is reliable and the clip-on design makes it easy to use. You don't have to hold it in front of the strings to get your pitch, which means that it's a lot more convenient than older models that made it feel like you have to have three hands to get a good tune on your instrument.
The Kala Makala tenor ukulele starter pack lets you get started playing one of the lesser-chosen, but most beautiful, sizes of ukulele out there. The instrument is durable and suitable for beginners, but intermediate players will also find it to be up to their standards and available at a great price.
I've found the hardware to be of a good quality and that you can use this instrument for a long time on your journey to becoming a great ukulele player. If you're not comfortable with the size of the standard ukulele, give the tenor a try. With the Kala Makala tenor ukulele starter pack, it won't cost you much to see if it's the right size for you and to determine whether this is the instrument that you want to make your mainstay in the ukulele world.
