Makala Ukuleles is just what the title says...Great Price, Great Sound. Of course, if you are just starting out with the instrument, you do not want to spend a fortune. What happens if you decide that you don’t want to play any longer? What if you buy it for a child who loses interest? While ukulele is fun enough that this is not likely going to happen, you certainly don’t want to take the risk with an expensive instrument. Fortunately, you can always turn to Makala Ukes for an affordable option.
When you think about getting a budget instrument, you probably worry that the playability or the sound will be subpar. While this might be the case with certain brands, Makala Ukes do not have that problem. Part of the popular Kala brand, these budget instruments are some of the best on the market in terms of price, sound, and playability.
In addition to the quality of the instruments, you will note that you have a wide range of options with these ukuleles. They have choices available for players who want a classic look, as well as those who want a bit more flare and style. Let’s look at a few of the different options they have.
Dolphins and Sharks are two of the top options for those who want to have an entry-level uke. They are available in soprano scale and feature an Agathis wood top along with brass frets and a high quality rosewood fingerboard. They have a custom bridge, which looks like a shark or a dolphin depending on the one you choose. The Makala Ukulele also comes with a nylon carrying bag. A wide range of different colors is available, including light blue burst, yellow coral, surf green, black gloss, candy apple red gloss, and lavender.
This just barely touches the color options you have with the Makala Ukulele Dolphin and Shark lines. You should be able to find a style and color that matches your personality with ease.
The company created a new line for 2014 called Makala Ukadelic. These have some very interesting designs that are very niche. Again, they are in the soprano scale, and they have a rosewood fingerboard, geared tuners, brass frets, and an Agathis wood top. The thing that really makes them stand out is the variety of designs on the body. You can choose from a vintage USA flag, a steam punk design, tropical nights, tropical days, camouflage, and more. Anyone who wants something that’s a bit different without spending a fortune will love these.
The Agathis series offers many different sound options, all without overspending. Buyers can choose from the typical soprano style, or choose a soprano pineapple style. The company also offers budget concert, tenor, and baritone ukuleles to get a different sound.
Even though Kala is relatively new to the field, they are developing a very good name for themselves. Players love the quality of all of their instruments, and that even includes the entry-level ukuleles from their Makala Ukulele line. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on a high-end uke, it makes far more sense to think about your budget and get an affordable instrument that still plays well. If you find that you love playing, you can always add to your collection later with more expensive options. However, when you hear how great these sound, you might find that you don’t really need to go out and spend more money.Return to Home Page
